The EULA Scanner

By David Ponce

When was the last time you actually read an entire “End User Agreement”? Hell, do you realize just how much that exposes you to get screwed by The Man? How much abusive language, like “You waive all rights”, or “If you agree, I’m allowed to have your children’s brains as a smoothie” you look over, just to have access to some crappy demo, or whatever?

Well, you don’t have to anymore. With the EULAlyzer™ 1.0, your legal well-being is just a download away. It’s a Javascript program that will scan these pesky agreements for you, so you don’t have to. And if anything smells of dead fish, it’ll let you know.

Download it here. Story VIA BoingBoing.net.

    this is a great idea…i never read those things. To me EULA’s are just a way for companies to justify their legal bills. Most EULA’s can be summed up into 2 sentences:
    1. We are going to take your money
    2. What ever you think your getting, expect to get less than that.
