Comment: Legal, huh? (Score 1) 543

by boomka (#26473765) Attached to: Tricked Into Buying OpenOffice.org?

Well, so in Germany it is legal to sell OO for any amount of money I feel like charging for it.

So what if this company wrote up EULA saying by downloading OO from them I am agreeing to buy it for 10 million dollars. Would you still recommend to pay?

But is it ANY different than asking for 100 dollars?

What would German law say if company was asking for 1 billion dollar per sale? After all, that number is just as arbitrary as any other number they are charging.

Well, one person decided to sit down and actually do the numbers on his own, and documented the calculations in his blog. His conclusion? Social Security is not broke. The blog makes for a fun read for the number crunchers among us."
