Tracking EULA changes, how to?

Posted 10 August 2012 - 02:26 PM

With all the furor about craigslist and some game makers changing licenses to prevent class action suits, is there any tool, site or app, that shows a kind of 'diff', timeline or changes of end user license agreements?

i think someone designed something of the sort some time back when something similar to the current craigslist saga was on. i've also forgotten which company triggered it.

I just memorize the EULA and/or TOS for all sites I visit, and check them for changes every couple of weeks... :innocent:


It wouldn't be all that difficult to create a simple app to monitor websites for EULA changes though.

When you come across a new EULA, save it to disk. Every so often, just run a diff on it and see what changed.

Some companies/sites that you register with, will actually send you an email saying they have a new EULA.

Atli, you are funny. Who reads legalese?
Thanks (Gunner too) for the ideas, I wanted to know if someone had done it and also to get an idea of how long projects started on a whim(?) exist

I guess Facebook is not one of them...

Interesting note, over the years I have received email alerts about EULA changes, not so much if any, anymore...
