What is the worst software license in your opinion?
Debate!

My choise would be higly restrictive licenses and copyleft stuff.

One word, SecuROM. Between the whole having to reactivate every 10 days with Mass Effect, not being able to detect the disc in the disk drive, and the terrible if you changed any part of your computer it would count it as a new install (which was limited to two unless you called for more installs).

Runner up goes to software licenses that require a physical dongle to be installed.

There was a software license that someone put giving your first born child to the company as a test to see if anyone reads it.
