    Javacool,

    I had a question regarding EULA-Watch. Does it grab EULAs from all sources where a user may encounter EULAs? For example web-based registeration forms and so on?

    I couldn't really test EULA-Watch without paying for the Pro feature set... :)

    Other the software is well done and there was certainely a need for something like this.

    AJ.

    Hi,

    EULA-Watch currently grabs EULAs from programs, as you are installing them. And it does so for most major software installers.

    So basically, you just let Otto the Owl sit down there in your system tray. And when you go and install a program, he'll be ready. :cool:

    (BTW, additional features are planned for the future.)

    Best regards,

    Would the owl also grab EULAs from web-sessions? For example, there's usually a EULA when you are signing up for mail account in yahoo/hotmail/etc. Or EULAs you have to accept before downloading a software.

    Thanks,
    AJ

    Hi,

    Otto the Owl (EULA-Watch) does not currently deal with web-based terms and conditions / agreements.

    At the moment, he deals with the EULAs you receive when you go to install a software program. :)

    (Of course, you can always copy and paste anything else into EULAlyzer itself.)

    Best regards,

    Thanks for the reply. This tool can have applications in corporate environments if it can automatically grab all EULAs (install programs, web forms, etc) and have forwarding capability to forward them to Legal or IT departments. Relying on end-users to even read the simplified output from EULAlyzer is asking a bit too much at times :)...

    How does Otto the Owl grab the programs EULA? And how does it know that it is a EULA and not another long file? Does Otto look for very long strings?
