Feb 16th 2010 10:40AM Yeah, I can't even think of a hypothetical where you could be harmed by anything Blizzard did, and even if you were, say they somehow terminated your service but kept on billing you intentionally or something like that, we are talking about financial damages that are so nominal, i.e. $15 a month, that there would probably never even be attorney's involved, let alone a suit.
Feb 16th 2010 10:14AM My biggest concern is that this article makes it look like the EULA is an ironclad bargained for exchange where both parties are on equal footing. In reality that couldn't be further from the truth. The reason the EULA holds water is because most of its terms are reasonable and would never cause you any problems anyway. However, if any of the terms of the EULA actually harmed you in any weird specific situation, there are a crap load of jurisdictions in this country which wouldn't even give this "agreement" much dignity at all. It would be used as mere evidence of an general agreement between the parties of unequal bargaining power consisting of terms outlining the general expectations of each party as generic software produce / software purchaser.
The point is, there is almost no reason to read any part of the EULA, as you have no reasonable expectation that any part of it could harm you, so if it ever did harm you in some way, it would be blow out of the water in a lot of courts.
Feb 9th 2010 12:19AM I'm just a law student and even I know this is a tort issue and not a contracts issue cause if u could prove damages that shrinkwrapped contract would get torn to shreds in most jurisdictions.
