Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
BoingBoing: Cat with a EULA

Allerca, a company that is offering genetically modified cats at $4,000 each, makes you "agree" to a EULA before they sell you your puddy tat:

    Purchaser shall not sell or transfer any Cat purchased hereunder to anyone other than an immediate family member, and shall not offer to any person the purchase of a Cat or any genetic material from a Cat, the rights Purchaser may have under this Agreement, or any other right related hereto, without the Company's express written authorization.

The cats are sold neutered.

Update: Patrick sez, "Allerca's headquarters was located in my apartment building, and they were evicted for non-payment of rent a few months ago. There was also an article in the San Diego Tribune, which questions their credibility."

The fact is that what we're experiencing right now is a top-down disaster. -Paul Krugman
