Re: If you want to include a EULA

They are legally binding and are worthwhile if someone wants to have a suit placed against you.  But I agree that are wasteful. And since most apps would not cause to much harm to anyone, the need for a detailed one might be overkill. Maybe have the EULA on a website that the "About" box can just reference.

Re: If you want to include a EULA

If it's not a "click-through" EULA, as in one that basically forces the user to "accept" by taking explicit action to positive acknowledge some statement to the effect of "I agree to the terms of this license", then I doubt they're considered legally binding anywhere.

Re: If you want to include a EULA

@turtle-dev What was the source of your EULA? I would like to use it as a starting point for my agreement.

@daviesjm

 

A good reporter doesn't reveal his sources...

j/k

 

I googled EULA and found some examples & then I adapted them for my use.

Re: If you want to include a EULA

@turle-dev -- Thanks!  I'm probably being too paranoid about this whole EULA thing.  I read through your sample (almost stayed awake to the end :smileyhappy:) and it seems like it covers the typical stuff plus the conditions mentioned in the Vendor Agreement. 

 

Thanks for your help.  Launch day is near, can't wait!

Re: If you want to include a EULA

Hmm...I found this interesting paragraph on the FAQ for BlackBerry App World.

Don't know if it changes anyone's opinion or their app....just an FYI...

 

Does my application require an EULA?
It’s recommended you include an EULA within your application. If an EULA is included, it must contain certain information as stipulated in the RIM Vendor Agreement and, if applicable, the Digital River Vendor Agreement.

 

 

Maybe someone might have to modify their EULA to match theirs? I dunno....I didn't include one.

Re: If you want to include a EULA

I only started this topic because I thought there was a requirement to have some statement clearing RIM from any liability (which the sample provided took care of). The way I handled it was to have my app check an initial value for a S/O variable called eulaAccepted. If false, when the app first starts you are brought to the about page with an 'I Accept' button and a link to a EULA on my website. When the user clickd 'I accept' the button changes to a 'Back' button and eulaAccepted is updated to true.
