    Which is why Adware companies love proprietary software :D People just blindly agree with the terms, it's perfect for them.

    Well, if a software goes on court then it's likely not going to survive for long. Unless it's Microsoft.

    Earth .... occasionally
    EULAs have rapidly become bloated and almost unreadable , which serves the interests of their creators just fine .

    Somebody please correct me if I'm wrong , but I think MS have set a new "world standard " with the W10 EULA.
    There's around 48 pages of it .... and it is a welter of inane , mindless blather .... with a checkbox at the end .

    But buried in there are the "quicksand" clauses ..... the one's that give away your ownership of everything on a W10 system.
