If I am basing it on old info and it has been corrected I would like to
be aware of it. Thanks.

Before I posted, I read the TOS at netscape and it look'd good, but
it's got bad karma with GRC and this lawsuit:
The software was available on Netscape's web site as well as from
other free download sites. On Netscape's site, the link to the
browsewrap terms was not visible in the first window view, but only
visible if the user scrolled down the screen further. On non-Netscape
sites, the Smart Download software could be obtained with any links to
the browsewrap contract terms whatsoever. Netscape's site did not
require users to click the browsewrap link. It merely stated, "Please
review and agree to the terms of the Netscape Smart Download software
license agreement before downloading and using the software. http://www.murdoch.edu.au/elaw/issue...unkel93nf.html

All the above is old news, but once bit twice shy, just ask Michael
Burford of Getright who screw'd us the same way once and now has to
plead his case. http://www.getright.com/statement.html
