I was pursuing the web today and checked out TMZ. I noticed something odd (I am a bit paranoid) as the web page began to load. A little dark line with some writing on it that quickly disappeared.

I decided to investigate. So I reloaded the page and stopped it during loading. There was the line, with links.

I am not a lawyer, but reading these terms I concluded that the website reserves the right to collect any data on you and use it anyway they want. And by using the site you give up any rights to sue them for any reason.

I don't know how legal these terms are since the link only appears very briefly and most people would miss it entirely.

But now I wonder how many other sites do the same thing.

Shows once again that you should never trust lawyers to do the right thing.
