about

Nearly every use of a computer is subject not only to public intellectual property law, but also to the privately-written law of the software license. Although the United States has only one Copyright Act and one set of patent laws, there exist thousands of different licenses - to whichmillions of computer users legally bind themselves by the click of a mouse, usually without reading anything but the word "agree."
