Your mind seems well made up; I would not try to convince you otherwise.
For others here looking to publish and comply with EULAs:
I do not claim to be licensed to give legal advice. My opinions are
only that, formed from having read a bit of trade press on relevant case
law over the years.
EULA terms vary so broadly that I've never seen a single judgment
attempt to validate or invalidate the lot of them. On the contrary, the
practice of IP law seems complex and nuanced; courts have found some
clauses invalid while enforcing others. Individual terms may vary, as
do details of judgment by jurisdiction. But I've read no case in which
EULAs as a whole were dismissed, and many to the contrary.
Here's a very small sampling of cases related to EULA judgments:
There are many others available on the web.
Again, nothing I've written should be construed as legal advice. If you
need the services of an attorney you should contact a professional
licensed to practice in your area.
