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

So basically, youre saying that putting up a bajillion pages of legalese with an ok button isn't enough to indicate that this is different then buying a sandwich.


Because it's not. There's no reason software need to be different. We already have copyright protection and existing laws that protect software as much as any other consumer product. The fact that the industry is doing their best to convince you and everyone else otherwise doesn't mean they're right.
And I dont for a moment buy the bullshit that "it's easier to copy". It's not like it's hard to copy CD's or videos or books etc these days but you don't see EULA's on those.

No, this is the industry trying to exploiting the lawmakers ignorance to further it's own agenda.

Like paying for rememberthemilk.com or something like that.


it's a membership. There are existing laws governing that too and it's entirely different from purchasing software.
