“Terms & Conditions May Apply” (Cullen Hoback, 2013, Trailer)

The Guardian posts a piece by Cullen Hoback, about his new documentary “Terms & Conditions May Apply” about the erosion of privacy in the digital era.

“Everything in our digital lives now comes with this legally binding contract, a contract designed to take away fundamental rights. And with 30 or more pages of undecipherable legalese at many sites, how is anyone supposed to understand the nature of the trade for digital services?

These contracts had largely evolved after the Patriot Act, designed to take as much from the user as possible, while simultaneously protecting the company from any and all legal recourse. Who was bargaining on behalf of the user?”
