    • Yes, the ‘Legal stuff’ is boring.
      The Terms of Use Agreement is fairly straightforward however it is typical of such legal writing that it is verbose which ensures many people cannot be bothered to read it.
      “…Studies show privacy policies are hard to read, read infrequently, and do not support rational decision making.”
      (McDonald & Cranor as cited in OUT-LAW News, 2008)
    • MySpace can do many things...
      They can change their Terms of Use Agreement at any time.
      The changes take effect as soon as they are posted on the website.
      All users of MySpace accept these changes by default (automatically)
