Actually, there are some cases where things are required by law to be in all caps - you may have noticed in many licenses, the section about the warranty is all caps, even if the rest of the license is not. That's because that section is required to be all caps by law.Well, technically it does not have to be all caps, it just has to be "conspicuous." However, the same set of laws lists being in capital letters as being conspicuous, so in order to avoid controversy about the meaning of the word "conspicuous," most lawyers will use all caps because all caps is a specific example from the laws.http://www.mslater.com/2009/2/19/why-are-warranty-disclaimers-in-all-caps
