How your Cat can agree to an EULA.


Anne Loucks has had enough of annoying EULAs and has come up with an ingenious, yet sneaky, method of getting her Cat, Simba, to deal with license agreements (instead of herself) when downloading software. She gets her Cat to agree to the license. Her logic behind the idea is Simba doesn’t have any legal rights, therefore the agreement is non-binding or toast.

Simba, the agreeable Cat.
Simba, the agreeable Cat.

“It is disturbingly common for people to click right on through such barriers without even looking at the agreement. I totally understand this attitude. Reading the EULA is generally a waste of time. “Blah blah blah… bequeathment of firstborn… Blah Blah Blah… eternal soul…” and so on.

Of course, I have created a wonderful solution to this problem. My cat, Simba, agrees instead of me. As he is not a legal entity, I don’t really know how kitty’s agreements would stand up in court, but I like to think he would be responsible for any breaches of contract, assuming the agreement is even enforceable. After all, he is not even of legal age, at least in human years.”

Have you had enough of EULAs. Get your Cat to agree and drive those lawyers crazy.

The Agreeable Cat
