Most if not all of us bother reading through software license agreements and just click the agree button. A lawyer and developer Robb Schecter read through Apple’s end user license agreement for OS X El Capitan and put it in plain English for everyone to understand and so you didn’t have to read it yourself. Here are a few highlights from Schecter’s article:
- Apple didn’t sell you this software. They still own it, in fact, you’re just borrowing it, just like any other Apple software.
- Slideshows made with Photos cannot be used for commercial purposes.
- You cannot use El Capitan with illegal copies of anyone’s stuff.
- Running El Capitan on Hackintoshes and non-Apple hardware is prohibited
- You must not operate a nuclear power plant with El Capitan
- Using MPEG/H.264/AVC videos created on your Mac for commercial purposes requires additional licensing for the coded.
This is basically apple just covering their ass so they don’t get sued. I can understand that but some of this stuff seems ridiculous, like gee thanks Apple for letting us borrow you software. But then again i suppose thats how most software is these days. What do you think about the license agreement for OS X El Capitan ?
