Does anyone actually read that crap? It could say something like "By installing this software, you automatically agree that your soul belongs to the devil, and we get to kill your dog," and hardly anyone would notice until someone pointed it out.

I read them sometimes. Most of the time (with games and such) I breeze by it. But on other things (some spyware that wants to look legit and allows either a voluntary or involuntary installation (like normal spyware happens upon your computer), their site says different than their program does), I read the agreement, and then I begin a conversation with their PR department that starts off innocently (so they respond), then I question said agreement and the company's practices.

They usually stop responding after that.

Yeah, I've skimmed it before, but I usually just skip it, unless it's something like MSN, where there's an option to agree to it installing spyware on your computer.

I tend to read them for games, as being network staff I'm somewhat obligated to uphold those license agreements. I find if you've read one, however, you've pretty much read them all.

I've signed my soul to the devil and promised my first born son twelve times

And I just learned today.

Those twelve companies will have to do the American thing for my son.. and do a lawsuit for him.

Well, I just bought Battlefront 2, and read most of its very short manual. I noticed that the EULA was about 3 pages long. I'm a guy who normally reads through entire manuals, no matter the length, but that is something I just can't be bothered about. The only time I do read them are for freeware programs (which often have bundled parasites) or for various other software "updates" from companies I don't trust (e.g. Microsoft :deal:). For retail games though, forget it.
