I last wrote about John Deere in February 2009 with an observation that the manufacturer of front loaders, cotton harvesters, and diesel engines did not allow children under age 18 to subscribe to their blog.
Three years later, the restriction remains.
You certify you are legally permitted to use the RSS Services and access the RSS Content, and if you are an individual, you are over 18 years of age.
Do you spot the conundrum yet?
John Deere doesn’t allow anyone under age 18 to subscribe to their blog posts about agricultural machinery, but they are forced to allow kids ages 13, 14, 15, 16, and 17 to follow their Twitter and Facebook content (which usually includes links to said blog posts).
If you were an attorney representing John Deere, what would you advise your client to do? Do they have a choice?
