    its true...

    have you ever installed a program for an older person who actually wants to read the license? 30 minutes later I had a 30second process completed.

    They usually make the ULA`s so long to read, so that you don`t read them. It is the reason most companies have 50 lawyers working on ULA`s. The longer they are, the more complex they sound, the harder it will be for the average person to find the bullpoo they are trying to hide. Because, agreeing to every single ULA is an agreement to be drated over.

    They should have the all the complex stuff as usual plus at the top maybe some key points that any normal person might be interested in.

    LMAOO. that`s hilarious, I`m always worried somehow they will know because I just click it and don`t scroll, or that maybe they will get me in court for something I did wrong that I hadn`t read in the license. Wow I sound crazy.

    Let me engourage everybody to read the last couple of paragraphs of the iTunes agreement next time you install a new version. It protects the software company from being sued if you lose a song due to "Acts of God"... Seriously.

    Skabashas - maybe "Acts of God" is another way of saying "Acts of Nature?" As in, if there`s a flood that destroys your iPod and your computer and you can`t redownload your purchased songs you can`t sue them.

    "It protects the software company from being sued if you lose a song due to "Acts of God"... Seriously."

    A lot of electronic devices and programs have that in their warranties and TOS agreements.

    It`s meant to protect against someone suing them if, say, a flood were to occur and the device or program is damaged.

    Basically, it`s trying to make sure that if it breaks, you can`t legally come back and bitch at them unless they specifically are at fault.

    iTunes also specifically states that you may not use iTunes in the creation of nuclear, chemical, or biological weapons. Damn you, Apple!

    You can basically put a "IF ANYTHING HAPPENS TO YOUR COMPUTER IT IS NOT MY FAULT" in there.
    No one can sue no matter what now.

    I never read those kind of agreements until I went to Law School. Now I read them thoroughly before agreeing. Always good to know what rights you`ve given up!
