Ubuntu End User License Agreement

End-user licensing agreements are usually lengthy and written in very specific legal language, making it more difficult for the average user to give informed consent. [3] When the company designs the end-user licensing agreement in such a way as to deliberately deter users from reading it and is difficult to understand, many users may not give their informed consent. You can also accept the license with a single order like this: several companies have parodied this belief that users don`t read end-user licensing agreements by adding unusual clauses, knowing that few users will ever read them. As an April joke, Gamestation added a clause stating that users who placed an order on April 1, 2010 agreed to give their souls irrevocably to the company, which was accepted by 7,500 users. Although there is a box to be contributed to exclude the “immortal soul” clause, few users have verified it, and Gamestation has concluded that 88% of its users have not read the agreement. [17] The PC Pitstop program contained a clause in its end-user license agreement that stipulated that anyone who read the clause and contacted the company would receive a financial reward, but it took four months and more than 3,000 software downloads before someone collected them. [18] During the installation of version 4 of the Advanced Reading Tool, the installer measured the time elapsed between the appearance and acceptance of end-user licensing agreements to calculate the average playback speed. While the agreements were accepted fairly quickly, a dialog box “congratulated” users for their ridiculously high reading speed of several hundred words per second. [19] South Park parodied in the HumancentiPad episode, in which Kyle had not read the terms of use of his latest iTunes update, and therefore accidentally agreed to let Apple employees act on him. [20] Without covering or restricting the open source licenses listed on them, you grant Canonical and its group companies a global, non-exclusive license for the installation, provision, reproduction and execution of your applications for testing and evaluation, as well as for the reproduction and distribution of your applications to end-users via customer software. You herely license Canonical and its group companies for the use of the trademarks and display you provide as part of the application in customer software and in related uses such as use in marketing materials and advertising in relation to the application, developer website or customer software.

, for the sole purposes strictly necessary for the distribution of the application in the client software. In addition to the doctrine of implied exhaustion, the distributor may include patent licenses with software. Also, in ProCD v. Zeidenberg, the license was declared enforceable because it was necessary for the customer to accept the terms of the agreement by clicking a “I agree” button to install the software. However, in Specht v. Netscape Communications Corp., the licensee was able to download and install the software without having to review the terms of the agreement and approve it positively, so that the license is considered unenforceable. I also just tried to completely remove the package, but the terminal says that, due to the incorrect package, I should reinstall the package before it is deleted.
