User Agreements and a 'Timeless Issue'


Finding that "the timeless issue of assent" has continuing vitality
in the realm of cyberspace, a federal judge has ruled that Internet
users who downloaded free software from a Web site were not bound
by the terms of a software licensing agreement because they never
consented to it.

The ruling, which was issued on July 5th, is one of the first

site -- without first reading legal fine print and clicking an "I
agree" button -- can constitute consent to an agreement governing
the use of the site or its products.
