This is so fucking stupid. Do I have to sue the to install their program. This is effectively malware now as it is messing with storage space.
In the UK, the introduction of malware is covered by section 3 of the Computer Misuse Act . The Act states that a crime is committed if a person “does any act which causes an unauthorized modification of the contents of any computer” and the perpetrator intends to “cause a modification of the contents of any computer” which may “impair the operation of any computer”, “prevent or hinder access to any program or data held in any computer” or “impair the operation of any such program or the reliability of any such data”.
Detsamma gäller den som olovligen genom någon annan liknande åtgärd allvarligt stör eller hindrar användningen av en sådan uppgift. Lag (2007:
This means, for example, that if a licence for software to be downloaded has an indefinite or long period then the usual restrictions or obligations placed on a licensee as a condition for granting the licence such as number of servers, server location, confidentiality, security, field of use, termination for breach will all be unenforceable.
