Legal EULAs, and whatever nonsense they may contain, are legally binding in the US. Have a great weekend!

I'm not against the concept of licensing software.

I'm against the shady business practice of masquerading the licensing of software as a sale. Luckily, I live in a sane world, and this shit won't fly in Europe, because it's a post-sale restriction.

If software "vendors" (LOL) want to do this right, then they ought to present the license as part of the "sale" (LOL), both on their website, as well as through their re"sellers" (LOL).

But they don't. As such, EULAs can suck my big fat popcicle. I just can't understand people supporting these shady business practices. You're basically shooting yourself in your own foot!

Also, I'm 100% certain even these judges broke an EULA at least once.
