Licensees should be careful to limit the duration of the warranty. Many licensees require a one-year guarantee. This is a hidden risk to the licensee, as the licensee can terminate the licence agreement during the warranty period and request a refund if the donor has a substantial infringement. A shorter warranty for a maintenance period, provided as part of a properly drafted and separate maintenance contract, can solve this problem. Some copyright holders use EULAs to circumvent existing copyright restrictions (. For example, restrictions in sections 107-122 of the United States Copyright Act) or to extend control over work to areas where copyright protection is denied by law (e.g. B, the attempt to impose private representations of a work beyond a certain number of performances or beyond a certain period). , to regulate or prevent. These EU A`s are essentially efforts to obtain contractual control over issues in which copyright is opposed to control.

[2] This type of EULAs is consistent with DRM in purpose and both can be used as alternative methods to extend software control. A common criticism of end-user licensing contracts is that they are often far too long for users to spend time reading them carefully. In March 2012, the PayPal end-user license agreement was 36,275 words[15] and in May 2011, the iTunes agreement was 56 pages long. [16] The sources of information that reported these results stated that the vast majority of users do not read the documents because of their length. Forms often prohibit users from reverse engineering. It can also make it more difficult to develop third-party software that collaborates with the software conceded, thereby increasing the value of the publisher`s solutions by reducing customer choice. In the United States, the provisions of the CLUE may prejudge engineering inversion rights, which are implied by fair dealing, c.f. Bowers v. Baystate Technologies.
