Question: If you have a monopoly position (e.g. Microsoft), and force a
click-wrap license to get product updates/support (e.g. MSFTs product
update facility), is there a legal challenge to the license terms?
What's the end-user supposed to do - not install a critical security fix
because they didn't like the license? MSFTs monopoly position allows
them to impose a license on the market. Is that a basis for challenging
the terms of the license?
