Wow. That’s the way to ridicule something ridiculous.

Just read it aloud.

Actor recites all 9 hours of Amazon Kindle T&Cs

according to Australian consumer rights advocacy group Choice, that lengthy jargon can often conceal strange clauses, and it’s unfair to expect consumers to wade through them. To highlight just how ridiculous it is, Choice hired an actor named Laurence to read aloud all 73,198 words of Amazon’s Kindle terms and conditions.

Based on the estimation that 500 words is one A4 page, that’s 146 pages, and it took poor Laurence nine hours to slog through the whole thing.

And then they posted it on nine Youtube videos.

Unfortunately the best solution Choice can come up with is more laws. Methinks it’s too many laws that got us into this in the first place.
