"There is no recourse. They make the law and if you mess up, you
go to jail. You used a computer, after all, didn't you, and their
server isn't yours, and if they say you have violated their terms,
you have. I'd also never upload anything to YouTube, and I wouldn't
use anyone's blogging software. I'd definitely stay out of the
Cloud, because I don't own those computers either, leaving me open
to Computer Fraud & Abuse Act allegations, which is what Drew
was charged with. In short, it'd be time for me to just pack up and
leave, if this verdict stands. If you think EULAs were bad, imagine
after this ruling if they can be tied to the CFAA. Do you think
it'll be long before folks are tossed in jail for defining fair use
in ways a copyright owner doesn't like? Would Microsoft hesitate to
criminalize its EULA terms? You think? You trust?"
