Violation Of The Ios End-User Software License Agreement

2 min read

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] While most of this information can be included in a standard agreement on terms and conditions of sale, an CLA for software and application developers is more industry specific and tends to be preferred. 3.6. Open source software. Open source software that is not owned by Cisco is subject to separate licensing conditions, as defined in www.cisco.com/go/opensource. Current open source software licenses do not significantly affect or affect your ability to exercise usage rights in current Cisco technology.

A common criticism of end-user licensing contracts is that they are often far too long for users to spend time reading them carefully. In March 2012, the PayPal end-user license agreement was 36,275 words[15] and in May 2011, the iTunes agreement was 56 pages long. [16] The sources of information that reported these results stated that the vast majority of users do not read the documents because of their length. The applicability of an AEA depends on several factors, one of which is the court where the case is being tried. Some courts that have considered the validity of The Shrinkwrap Licensing Agreements have invalidated some EULA and have characterized them as liability contracts that are unacceptable and/or unacceptable according to the U.C.C – see z.B. Step-Saver Data Systems, Inc. v. Wyse Technology,[6] Vault Corp. v. Quaid Software Ltd. [7] Other courts have found that the Shrinkwrap licensing agreement is valid and enforceable: cf. ProCD, Inc.

v. Zeidenberg,[8] Microsoft v. Harmony Computers,[9] v. Novell Network Trade Center,[10] and Ariz.
