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

Ha, this makes me think... if I sold/released a piece of software with an EULA that says you can only use it every other Thursday, and only in a squatting position while farting the tune from The Brady Bunch, is that legally binding?


It looks like that will be legally binding but how are you going to discover infringers of your license without invading their privacy by monitoring them using your software?

Having such language in EULAS and then attempt to enforce it will lead to actions like sony's secretly installing rootkits on people's computers to enforce a license by preventing customers of their cds from copying the cd to the hard drive. We all know the amount of flack sony got because of it.
