You should see how fast I flip past 35 pages of legal BS just to see that glorious Next button. 

Don't test my skills, I was trained by myself! Check out my Gaming Videos!

Sometimes, just out of curiosity and when I don't have anything better to do.

The major problem about those installation wizards are the toolbars and other "utility" programs that insist to come along and gets installed if you're not careful.

I think they just make it so long and with fancy words (which most lawyers still need a dictionary for:p) to piss us off. Its purposely made long and confusing that most won't read it, thus they can put everything they want in there and people will agree....

It should be illegal this legal BS :p

Have you watched the "Humancentipad"Episode of SouthPark. It makes fun of exactly this Stuff. I myself as probably the whole world always agree without reading. They could write anything in these things. They could write that you agree to have all your organs removed and sold. I hope someone in the near future comes up with a better way to this legal BS.

Your right, on top of that why in the world am I forced to agree to things before the setup when I purchased the program?

Well of COURSE I read each and every word!!!! Oh, wait, no, no I don't. I DO however agree with you about the "I Agree" button. But I am not comfortable due solely to the terminology. I MUCH prefer the "accept" buttons. I may not agree with companies forcing me to give up all my rights... but if its a program I want to use, I will "accept" the fact that they are forcing me to give up any rights I may have in order to use it.

i hate it if i install a program and then it ask if u want to agree and install a program with it. and if u click agree it instal this useless toolbar with it so i have to click not agree. and it instal the program u wanted so u have to be little carefull what u click agree on.

Do you use Origin? If you do, you have agreed to allow Origin to inspect hardware and downloaded game files, and you agree to "give up your right to sue against the company that created it."

I usually just drone through installations, but Steam recently asked me to waive my right to pursue class-action cases against them.

I clicked 'I Disagree'. I hope it won't prevent me from playing my games, but it's always a bit odd when out of the blue you're asked to waive any legal rights.

Steam doesn't block you from accessing your account if you disagree? That's news to me.

I've just tried it, it won't let me start steam without accepting the new terms. Every time I 'disagree' it closes the program.

I'm lucky that I don't play a whole load of games, so I'm not really bothered, but I'm not sure that it's fair to force new terms people in this manner.

No point in reading it. If I am going to use the software I will just keep clicking Next.

BTW, appreciated the sing-along. lol
