An individual who actually read his PC Pitstop EULA found an interesting provision: send us an email and we will give you $1000 dollars. Turns out it was a move by PC Pitstop to see how many people didn't read their EULAs, and to highlight why people should read their EULAs - you might win cash (actually - to avoid spyware).

According to PC Pitstop, 3000 people had received the EULA with the $1000 cash option and had not noticed (or simply didn't believe it and didn't send in the email).

Just goes to show another reason why EULAs shouldn't be enforceable - no one reads them and everyone (including the companies that include them with their products) knows that no one reads them.
