The UK's National Consumer Council (NCC) checked 25 products, including iLife, Microsoft Office for Mac 2004, Corel WordPerfect Office X3, Adobe Photoshop, Norton, Kaspersky and McAfee anti-virus products, and games Command and Conquer 3, Football Manager 2007, and Supreme Commander. The group said end user license agreements, or EULAs, mislead consumers and remove legal rights.
According to The Register, part of the NCC complaint is that consumers aren't told they'll have to sign such a license when they buy the product in many cases. Most display the EULA either when you first use the product or in the instruction manual.
