Who really does read software licenses? I don't. I ain't got time for that. Ah, and you're also signing blank checks to everybody you have to pay?
My favorite is the EULA that is inside the shrinkwrapped box with a sticker on the outisde "By opening this package you agree..yadda yadda" to terms you cannot read without opening the package. Robert Ringer's Mentor would be proud.
I guess I've already said a dozen times we need a plain language software licensing law. Even some of the open source licenses are too arcane. It should be way simpler. Like "I wrote the base code for this so no matter how much you modify it you cannot exclude me from further development of my own software." Simple terms like "at your own risk" should not be subject to litigation. But I guess the license authors must aspire to be legislators and wish to demonstrate that they too can construct terms that no normal person can explain in plain English.
