Most of us don’t bother reading the terms and conditions of the software we use. After all they are the size of small books and are boring. They basically say stuff like, don’t pirate software and don’t use it in ways that it was not intended to be used. We get that. It’s just boring as anything.
Thanks to artist Robert Sikoryak, reading the iTunes Terms & Conditions has gotten much cooler. He turned these pages of boring legalese into an exciting comic book. This comic features Apple’s late co-founder Steve Jobs as the hero in comic form, with the text in the comic copied from the iTunes Terms & Conditions.
In comic form this stuff is actually worth reading. Or at least looking at the drawings. These are terms that we can get behind. If you want to read it, Sikoryak is selling the complete version which is split into two books.
They are priced at $8 each (part 1 and part 2) and this is interesting because this may be the only time ever that people are willing to pay to read the fine print. It is a great idea and very creative. I bet more people understand the terms now more than ever before.
