Ran their EULA through EULAlyzer… (Score:5, Informative)

…and it concluded:

“The license agreement above has a high calculated interest ID. It’s extremely long, and there were a high number of detected ‘interesting’ words or phrases.” That means Eulalyzer thinks its a bad EULA. The interesting words or phrases are listed and can be viewed in context: (1) Advertising, (2) Emergency Calls or Services, (3) Third Party, (4) Web Site Address, and (5) Without Notice. I’ve never seen a EULA with that many “‘interesting’ words or phrases” called out by the program.

EULAlyzer is a free (download: http://www.javacoolsoftware.com/downloads.html [javacoolsoftware.com]). If, like me, you don’t have the time to read through the EULA’s for software you’re thinking of purchasing, this is just the program for you. At the very least, it will give you a “heads up” and point you to the ‘interesting’ parts of the EULA where you can, then, read as much “legalese” as you can stomach..
