[citation][nom]loleula[/nom]It should be illegal for a company to bury terms behind a bunch of legal jargon designed to protect themselves. Furthermore it should be illegal for them to set a fixed window size for the display of said terms. Many EULA's are 15+ pages long, sitting inside a tiny windows displaying no more than 4 lines of text which is non-resizeable. On top of that, they print 5+ paragraph in a row in all caps making it impossible to read. They are clearly purposely making it difficult to read. All of the statutes an EULA grants should be spelled out plainly above, and then all of the legal technicalities can be listed below. Right now they just randomly throw it all in there together.[/citation]
This is actually spot on. EULAs really need some kind of standardized, enforced format for ease of reading, and having some kind of summary of key points that can quickly be scanned through by most people who are, quite reasonably, not inclined to spend a lot of their time slogging through legalese every time they want to use some new software (and again whenever their existing software has its EULA changed).
As it is, EULAs and other similar types of agreements should really be unenforceable seeing as they're obviously and explicitly designed to *not* be read.
