I have to admit I've never read a whole one either. I sometimes start
with one but the terminology is so confusing and they really all basically
say the same thing as far as I can tell: "don't give this away to someone
else and don't reverse engineer it." I'm incapable of reverse engineering
and I don't cotton to piracy so I breeze past the agreements.
