What Does Shrink Wrap Mean?
Shrink wrap is an end user license agreement accompanying software or hardware, conspicuously placed behind see-through plastic wrapping. It is however apparent to the consumer before they open the product wrapper. Once opened, the consumer agrees to the end user license agreement, which contains usage rights along with other specifications. The legal agreement is between the copyright owner or software vendor of the product and the consumer. The shrink wrap specifically refers to the heated plastic covering the digital media product. Unlike most, this type of license is not signed.
