    Interesting, blizzard uses a similar system in WoW and their EULA, everytime something changes (patches etc) you have to 'agree' again.

    I use a real ISP these days but back in the days on ISDN downloading 50gb a month was too much for freeserve who informed us that the TOS had changed, luckily that was the same month our exchange got upgraded to ADSL!

    they should do it. back when I worked for a cell phone company there were customers who would call in and point out that if we change something and they dont like it then they have the option of leaveing. but the phone company would never do it. It would be nice to see someone standing on the side of the customer for a change.

    Would be nice if that were the case everywhere. Would also be nice if judges would rule against 50 page long legalese operas when a half a page list of do's and don'ts would suffice (and give 99.9% of people a better idea of what they were getting into)

    Amen! (Though the TOS of my last travel insurance (sic!) were a positive exception :)

    I tried to read a few other TOSes in the month back ... I gave up :duh:

    I guess the article's right in saying it provides a loophole if you are not satisfied anyway ...
