I was noticing that even though disclaimer laws are in place, doesnt seem like they are enforced at all, That however is my own perception, I have tried to do reasearch on this but not being a lawyer,just have a hard time, understanding what I do find. The example of disclaimers on t.v. ads is where I would like to start. I was under the immpression that there was a law on the books, that these disclaimers need to be "shown" long enough for people to read and be large enough to be legible for people read. Some of the replies will probably have negative overtones, but really, it would be nice if some of "you" can submit examples some of the most foolish, silly,kind of disclaimers we might find on todays products and wares.

McDonalds: "Beware! The coffee is hot"

Thats akin to saying "Beware! the water is wet"

But alas, someone got paid off of this......

MOTF!

off to a good start.I saw a commercial on t.v. (cant remember the product) that in its disclaimer said something like"may cause greasy or oily discharge". the disclaimer wasnt there long enough for me to read the whole thing,
