What Is An End-User License Agreement

Unless an agreement has been reached in writing, nothing in this ECJ transfers ownership of intellectual property rights or grants a licence. You retain ownership of your content and Cisco retains ownership of Cisco and Cisco Content technology. Cisco can use any feedback you give to your use of Cisco technology in your business activities. Most retail software licenses reject (as far as local laws permit) any guarantee on the performance of the software and limit liability in case of damage to the purchase price of the software. One known case that confirmed such a disclaimer is Mortenson v. Timberline. In other words, users are threatened with legal action when they use “unauthorized” programs to remove the Clarias product.16 Users should not use a common network diagnostic tool, the packet snoop, to find out what types of actions GAIN AdServer takes on the network, even if they want to solve a problem with their computer or network. The worst part is that the BLA actually claims to prohibit the user from “encouraging” others to use deletion programs, meaning that, according to Claria, it is even suggested to a friend that using such a program could improve their computer performance is illegal. Many companies have parodied this belief that users do not read end-user licensing agreements by adding unusual clauses, knowing that few users will ever read them.

As an April joke, Gamestation added a clause stating that users who placed an order on April 1, 2010 agreed to give their souls irrevocably to the company, which was accepted by 7,500 users. Although there is a box to be contributed to exclude the “immortal soul” clause, few users have verified it, and Gamestation has concluded that 88% of its users have not read the agreement. [17] The PC Pitstop program contained a clause in its end-user license agreement that stipulated that anyone who read the clause and contacted the company would receive a financial reward, but it took four months and more than 3,000 software downloads before someone collected them. [18] During the installation of version 4 of the Advanced Reading Tool, the installer measured the time elapsed between the appearance and acceptance of end-user licensing agreements to calculate the average playback speed. While the agreements were accepted fairly quickly, a dialog box “congratulated” users for their ridiculously high reading speed of several hundred words per second. [19] South Park parodied in the HumancentiPad episode, in which Kyle had not read the terms of use of his latest iTunes update, and therefore accidentally agreed to let Apple employees act on him. [20] This means that you can`t run programs (like packet snoops) that analyze Kazaa`s performance, evaluate what it does, or can change how your computer works. Kazaa reserves the right to tell you what you can and cannot do with the program on your own computer. 12.14. Full agreement.
