Legalese with a smile

Some time ago, I posted about EULAs and my problems reading legal documents that I figured most other people wouldn't understand, either, and wouldn't really take the time to read.

More recently, I discovered the Terms of Use page at While it's still too long, I think (1,431 words, give or take), it's at least interesting to read, and it has a tongue-in-cheek approach that makes it quite palatable while still getting their message across. In fact, it may do a better job than the original legalese (which I haven't seen here).

That said, if I had to read every software and Web site's individualized, creative terms before surfing or installing, I'd still go crazy.
