Oh great.  If this gets signed into law then they just legalized all
spyware that has an EULA.

Think of all those free applets, clocks, calendars, tiny dancers, etc.
that have you agree to an EULA.  Now all the spyware imbedded in them is
legally protected.

Just like the "(You) Can Spam Act".  The worst abuses are made illegal,
with no real enforcement provisions, and the rest are legalized.

Score another one for the DMA.
