Welcome to Life ~ Dystopian Corporatism Spoof

Tom Scott posts at IEET on Uploading Ruined by Capitalism...
"If capitalism, intellectual property and other trends continue unchecked this could be the kind of user agreement we’d be offered upon upload."
I'm not sure this is centrally about capitalism or rather the currently backwards and broken state of contract law, IP law, personal data rights, and more, plus the still lagging inadequacies of opensource alternatives. Nevertheless, I think this spoof of dystopian corporatism is hilarious;-) PS As a bonus, check out Tom's Journalism Warning Labels!
