Legal Let's do a little trip down memory lane. We're talking the '80s, early '90s, and we're looking at a company called Borland, which produced several well-known and popular products related to software development. Back in those days, Borland had an end user license agreement. However, contrary to the EULAs we know and despise today, Borland's 'No-Nonsense License Statement' was a whole lot simpler, and in fact, is a perfect example of how software should be treated.

Well, that's kinda true in general. I gather that, whenever any given contract is taken to court, it's likely that some clause somewhere will be found to be unenforcable. There's a "which parts of this document are enforcable" step in all contract negotiation.

I think.
