License Agreement
According the Inc.com "A licensing agreement is a legal contract between two parties, known as the licensor and the licensee. In a typical licensing agreement, the licensor grants the licensee the right to produce and sell goods, apply a brand name or trademark, or use patented technology owned by the licensor."(inc.com, 2005) I am not familiar with licensing agreements however I am very familiar with End User License Agreements because I am a gamer and I've used numerous software programs over the years. The End User License Agreement is a legal agreement between you and the owner of a software product. The End User License Agreement serves as an agreement between a producer and a user of computer software and specifies the parameter of use granted to the user. The software producer specifies these parameters and limitations on use, which can become part of a legally binding contract. When you check of the "I Agree" box, you are in fact legally accepting to abide by the terms of the agreement and to use the software as the owner specifies.
Rockstar Games
It was September 17th, 2013 when the most anticipated game of the year was released and took the world by storm. I was one of the millions that purchased the game and like the millions of others I had to click the "I agree" box before I could access the content. Grand Theft Auto V is an open world, action-adventure video game developed by Rockstar North and published by Rockstar Games. Besides the campaign mode there is an online mode that requires you to agree to the terms and conditions of Rockstar games. I agreed to the terms and conditions but never read them until now. For some reason I don't believe anyone read this agreement because most…...

...Shrink-wrap agreements are sometimes called shrink-wrap licenses and are the internet equivalent of click-on agreements. A shrink-wrap agreement is an agreement whose terms are expressed inside a box in which the goods are packaged. Normally, a shrink-wrap agreement is not between a retailer and a buyer, but between the user or buyer of the product and the manufacturer of the hardware or software (Miller & Jentz, 2008). Many courts have determined that the seller has proposed a contract by including the terms with the product that a buyer could accept after reading the terms and using the product. A buyer’s failure to object to the terms contained within a shrink-wrap software package constitutes an acceptance of the terms by conduct. In this case the terms of the shrink-wrap agreement will be enforced by the courts. Shrink-wrap agreements will not be enforced by the courts if it is determined that the seller communicates the terms after a contract has been formed with a buyer. Under these conditions the courts would find the terms were not a part of the contract unless the buyer agreed to them (Miller & Jentz, 2008). In Mary DeFontes’ case she purchased the computer which contained an agreement that included the remedies available and the terms of the sale. By keeping the computer and using it for longer than thirty days and failing to object to the terms, it looks as if DeFontes is in acceptance of these terms. Dell’s website included an inconspicuous link at the......
