    Hello. My iPod Touch indicates that there are 7 updates from the App Store. When I tried to download the updates, I got a message saying that the iTunes Terms & Conditions Have Changed. It required me to read and accept the new terms and conditions before it would allow me to download. There are totally 57 pages. Anybody read the whole thing? Is it risky to just press Agree? I only use free applications. I don't want to end up paying... Thanks.

    I believe you will be OK. Don't read it, just scroll down and accept it.

    Yeah, just agree. Nothing bad is going to happen.
    Usually it says at the very top what has changed....thats really the only part worth reading.

    Thanks. I hope that Steve did not put "Will you Marry Me?" in the middle of the Terms and Conditions.

    Certainly you should check what the changes are. I wish we could be explicitly told what changes there are rather than trying to decipher 57 pages of lawyer talk to find out what we are being caught for.

    If there's anything dodgy buried in those 57 pages, it probably wouldn't stand up in court anyway.

    Yet further evidence that anything we say on the internet, may echo for eternity...

    Also - 110% for highlighting what changes apply - and what about options if we don't agree? Why can't we opt out of specific areas we may not agree with? It's digital - accept EVERYTHING, or go (#* yourself. Thank you, but I live an analogue world.

    I was reading CNN on my iPhone the other day when I came across that article. I'm telling you I about had a heart attack when I saw I was quoted...it was so unexpected.

    If there's 57 pages, its for a reason. They aren't going to write fluff for the sake of it. They are clearing themselves of any liability and making sure you understand what you are agreeing to.

    Don't worry, several million people have managed to use it without being assimilated by the cybermen, despite it the terms and conditions stating on page 38 that cybermen are legally with their rights to invade your house and kill your entire family with 48 hours of you signing into iTunes for the first time.

    If you happen to see one in your garden during this time, my advice would be to throw cats at it, as they are known to be heavily allergic.

    I don't know how true that is.

    There's something fundamentally silly about presenting users with a 57 page contract that probably < 1% will read, and of that 1% only a minority would be qualified to understand it and the full legal implications of every term.

    What is the point in having a contract which one party doesn't read or understand? The point of the contract is to confirm agreement, but how can you have agreement if one side doesn't even know to what they're agreeing?

    The T&Cs might as well be written in Swahili.

    Go to an apple store with all 57 pages printed out, and ask one of the workers to clarify a clause :p

    Also, you're not able to use iTunes to control a nuclear reactor, fyi. It's in the T&C ;)
