Terms and conditions apply.
Once restricted by a sort of common sense "hey, come on now" approach to law when governments were still in charge, End-User License Agreements (or EULAs) have now become part of an arms-race between corporations. Even the EULA for a pack of peanuts can fill enough pages to put a fantasy trilogy to shame, and that's just getting started. When you sign the dotted line, the corporations make damn sure they have what they want.
There's Always A Catch
Pretty much everything in the Megacorpolis has a EULA attached to it, from software to cybernetics, to services and using the local Javamat
. It's only gotten worse with time, at the same pace as signing the damn thing has gotten easier - with AR overlays, it's done automatically for the consumer's "convenience" most of the time. Some guns will even fire an automatic EULA with every pull of the trigger, and consider it signed when the bullet burrows into flesh.
Crafting EULAs have become a full industry in its own right, complete with viral marketing campaigns and everything for particularly well-crafted agreements.
