Just stumbled across some TOS craziness on Saygent's website. Can't link to it directly because according to their TOS I would be liable to pay them $100.000 in damages.
Here is a workaround:
- google Saygent (hope that Google got their permission)
- visit their site and click on Legal at the bottom to open the TOS
- check out the "HYPERLINKING TO SITE, CO-BRANDING, "FRAMING" AND REFERENCING SITE PROHIBITED" paragraph
C'mon guys, you're a SV startup, not Associated Press!!!
"In no case shall the viewer, visitor, member, subscriber or customer have the right to go to court or have a jury trial."
Just because you say I can't, doesn't make it so.
I do like that the fact that they haven't stated that if one part of the contract is made invalid then the rest of the contract that is enforcable will remain valid.
Whoever wrote up this legalese has missed something important, but included something ridiculous. Whoops!
P.S. Oh, and I also like they have included most of an episode of Seinfeld above their legal policy. Copyright violation, anyone? The irony...
