Strange days...

...as a jobbing IT journalist I'm used to signing non-disclosure agreements. What I'm not used to are disclosure agreements...

Apparently some beta code I've picked up here at IT Forum has a click-wrap end-user licence agreement that prevents you from reviewing the product. So, when they gave me a copy, hoping I'd write about it, I had to put my name and address on a piece of paper that had been signed by a representative of the company. This piece of paper informed me that that clause didn't apply to me, and giving me full permission to write about the product and to tell the world about all its nifty features (if said world is interested in enterprise systems management tools for large Windows networks...).

Strange days indeed.
