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.

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.

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

@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 ) 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!

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.
