Microsoft has been the source of prime examples of legal jargon but to their credit they are simplifying the EULA for Windows 8. Of course, the company still isn’t giving any ground on restricting our rights; it is just making it easier to understand that the user only licenses the software, does not own it, and has no recourse about anything that goes wrong. Also Microsoft still has no compunction about changing the rules about a service whenever they like.
For example, I am a subscriber to Microsoft’s TechNet. You pay a chunk of money up front for a year and get access to various Microsoft applications for testing purposes. When I first signed up and paid out my money, a certain number of software licenses were part of the deal. Then after a few months, Microsoft reduced the number of licenses that were available. No refund of the money that I paid for a larger number because the TOS said Microsoft could change the terms whenever it wanted.
It’s heads, Microsoft wins, tails, the consumer loses.
