Companies make us sign weird agreements, EULAs, for every website we sign up at. What if there was a standard one, and companies had to offer that too?You may notice an obvious problem but in Cory's article here there is a solution:"Lemley says that if a seller prices their product at $25 with the EULA and $1 million without, then the buyer who accepts the EULA is handing over $999,975 worth of value when they click "I agree." Lemley says we should tax that as income."
