Richard Dreyfuss reads the iTunes EULA

Academy-award winner Richard Dreyfuss is here to help you understand your rights and obligations as an iTunes customer; at CNet's behest, he's read 2,000 or so words that comprise the iTunes EULA.
c. Termination. The license is effective until terminated by You or Application Provider. Your rights under this license will terminate automatically without notice from the Application Provider if You fail to comply with any term(s) of this license. Upon termination of the license, You shall cease all use of the Licensed Application, and destroy all copies, full or partial, of the Licensed Application.

Richard Dreyfuss reads the iTunes EULA (Thanks, Alice!)


  1. Hmm, I just searched for ‘anus’ in the EULA, given the South Park ‘Human CentiPad’ episode.

  2. I think it’s great that if you violate any part of the license the license is automatically void. That means you don’t have to comply with the part about not using the software because you violated the license.

    1. That’s not how it works. If you violate the ToS then your continued use of the software is denied. If you continue to use the software after the ToS violation, you are an unauthorized user. No different in the eyes of the law as a “cracker”(nee “hacker”), tresspasser or thief.

      If you violate the ToS and continue to use the software they can civilly and criminally prosecute you. They *probably* won’t, but they can.


    2. Except that means that you now have no license to the software whatsoever, and therefore are committing copyright infringement, as the license grants you rights to copy from, as an example, your HDD to RAM.

  3. Riveting, reminds me of an album recording of the sorcerer’s apprentice read by Richard Hale That I listened to as a child over and over again.

  4. Dreyfuss is genius, this may now be my favorite thing on the web! These EULA license have become silly and inane. The iTunes EULA is 79 pages… SEVENTY NINE!

    Listen up lawyers… Our laws have NO meaning if it takes you 79 pages to say “Don’t blame us if this software breaks”.

  5. Heretofore pay SPECIAL GOD DAMN ATTENTION to sections (e.) and (f.) as we FUCKING SCREAM them to you in our EULA.
