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

I think the only solution to this mess is to simply ignore the ruling. Just buy your software. (Better yet, use free software, but that isn't always possible or appropriate.)

I simply don't obey idiotic laws. I never will. I really don't care, and I probably won't ever get caught. Too many people think that they have to obey the laws. You don't. You just have to be prepared to accept the possible natural consequences that are out of your control.

And piracy will not help. You may think you are "sticking it to the man". You are really just giving fuel to the idiots that run the world, and depriving the software companies of money which I believe they have the right to have, regardless of how idiotic they are.

I think that's one of the most sensible posts on this thread.
