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

Member since:

If EULA is agreed on as part of the sales agreement, is not contrary to consumer laws, and not contrary to laws on terms & conditions, then it is legally binding.

However, I haven't seen many EULA's that pass this.

Look no further than enterprise-class software. Oracle, Sun, IBM, that sort of thing. In those cases, proper contracts are drawn up, since software licensers know goddamn well that while they can fcuk over individuals like you and me, they can't fcuk over other big companies.
