Software Guideline Guidance

Why Terms of Services Matter

Terms of Services are designed to protect companies from potential repercussions with the misuse of their software. While being written they typically generalize to apply to as much of their userbase as possible. This leads to very long documents as outlined below:

The Problem

Through no ill intent, software companies make rules that categorize innocent usage as malicious, causing massive disruption to the business of their customers.

Imagine you own an extension for a browser like Google Chrome. The Google Chrome Web Store distributes these extensions and has its own specific set of guidelines and policies that are considered acceptable practice. If one day these policies change and you are not up to date with the adaptation, you risk your entire extension userbase being wiped from existence. Bringing your total revenue from the extension to $0. Now imagine this principal applied to any partner you use for distributing software.
