"UCITA forces you to actually read the license or the user
agreement on a Web site. Clicking the 'I Agree' button really does
bind you to the terms of the interminable prose above it, even if
that prose says you'll undergo voluntary sterilization for the
privilege of using the product."
"UCITA supporters take a dim view of the opposition,
particularly those nasty Linux folk, who are ominously referenced
on one pro-UCITA site: 'Its supporters should get a lawyer before
they hurt themselves.' Many Linux developers are concerned that
UCITA-imposed liabilities will choke off the open-source movement
(surely not a factor in Microsoft's support?)."
"The states now reviewing UCITA are Hawaii, Illinois and
Oklahoma; up in the state of Washington, Microsoft has heavily
lobbied for its passage. Just think -- if UCITA passes, such
companies may never have to lobby again. All they'll have to do is
pull the plug on the opposition."
