im just curious about this, i was sitting with my mind in a thinking state, and this came to my head, do people really read the licence and agreement things. then i though about the MSFN forum. why not ask people.

Well, being that I work in a corporate environment I do read every EULA for every piece of software I install. :)
What if everything around you, isn't quite as it seems...
What if all the world you used to know, is an elaborate dream...
And if you look at your reflection, Is that all you want to be?
What if you could look right through the cracks, Would you find yourself... find yourself afraid to see?

I think I read the license of the two first softwares I installed in my life, after that...

I soon realized that it's mainly: do not make illegal copies, we're not responsible if you screw your system, blahblahblah.

I'm sure there is a catch or two I haven't read and I should have...
Everyone is entitled to be stupid, but you are abusing the privilege.

Well.. if you haven't paid attention, there was a big issue with MS when they changed their licensing model earlier last year. The corporate environment did not take well to it, and MS had to change it once again because they were losing select partners because of it. There was an item that basically gave them the right to get into your system. When you installed SP1 you all agreed to this as well. It has since been changed so there isn't anything to worry about now.

Yea, before my clients purchase it because I consult and/or represent mostly foreign companies that have offices in the U.S. It has always been of interest to me anyway.

Want to read a scarry license?

Read the EULA for Creative Labs. The way it's worded pretty much gives them the right to do anything thay want to your computer, including installing virus, worms, etc.
