I wonder how many of these EULA's we would have if no human being ever pirated software? I wonder what kind of copy protection we would have if no one ever copied an MP3? All you who have or ever have had copies of music you never bought and have chimed in on the evils of EULA's or copy protection, just stop for a moment and ask yourself how much you have contributed to the present situation. 

Lawyers pretty much run the world for the reason that people in general have created a market for them. If we want to place blame, let's start at the source, which is that crooked neighbor or the drug dealers down the street, or perhaps even ourselves. If we are unwilling to turn them in as our civic duty, if any of us have a tool he borrowed from his neighbor and never got around to telling him, then we might start looking in the mirror for the real culprit in the blame game. 

Let the flames begin! :-)
