Lori Drew MySpace Fraud Trial May Be Dismissed Because Drew Never Read Terms of Use

Do You Ever Read Websites' Terms of Use?

Lori Drew, the woman who made a fake MySpace profile to torment teenager Megan Meier, which led to the latter's suicide, is currently on trial for fraud. This was the only way to prosecute Drew for her involvement in Meier's suicide — accusing her of fraudulently creating a MySpace account.

However, it already looks like the case could be thrown out, because she has testified that she never read MySpace's terms of use, nor did she agree to them.

I personally cannot remember the last time I actually read a website's terms of use; I agree to them, sure, but it's rare that I actually read the fine print. Am I setting myself up for disaster? Maybe — it could depend on the outcome of this case. Tell me: Do you actually read the terms of use for every website that presents it to you?
