V635 - Licence Agreements Summarisation Bill 2014Watch
1. It is unclear what must be included in the summary. If a description of all points, it is simply an even longer version of the license, which is not necessarily useful. If not all, then by excluding some points it may worsen the situation by making the agreements misleading in addition to incomprehensible.
2. If there are contradictions, intentional or not, between summary and license it is not clear which, if either, would take precedence.
3. There are no penalties stated for the summary being incorrect or misleading, intentionally or otherwise.
4. The requirement to state "all points which affect in any way the statutory rights of the End User." is meaningless; statutory rights are rights that cannot be amended or removed by contract.
