Apple iCloud EULA Turned into Story about Giving up Freedom: Agreeculture

by Lambert Varias

The length and legalese of consumer products’ licensing documents have become running jokes of the 21st century, but the issue’s ramifications are no laughing matter. Graphic design student Florence Meunier may not have found a practical alternative to unreadable End-User Licensing Agreements (EULA), but at the very least she made a subversive reminder of the problem by crafting a short story out of the Apple iCloud EULA through editing and wit.

Florence’s class was tasked to make a user-friendly printed version of the iCloud EULA. She could have rephrased or summarized the document in simple terms, or perhaps turned it into a comic book. Instead, she printed the EULA and then added a transparent sheet over each page. The sheets blacked out parts of the text, revealing the story of The Man Who Agreed. It’s about a man who clicked “I Agree” to a licensing prompt on his computer without actually reading its contents. Sound familiar?
