I questioned the validity of EULAs a few months ago and Jeffrey Tucker of the Mises Blog responded and got quite a bit of responses regarding the matter.I do not think it should be legally enforceable. As for whether or not it can be is an entirely different matter. The State's capacity for violent coercion knows no bounds; in the order of things, enforcement of EULAs are a trivial matter to them.
