  2. I have been wondering for a while if it would be possible to create a “EULA component database”. People hardly look at EULAs, as they consist mostly of a lot of the same boring stuff. What is interesting about EULAs is what sets them apart. What if people could tag EULAs with components or characteristics in an online database? Which end-users then could look up?

    I could imagine a Creative Commons like structure, with icons telling things like “this software will phone home” or “this software will install a rootkit on your system”.

    All non-legal advice of course. But at least it would improve on the current situation where hardly anyone reads the EULAs anyway.
