Nobody Reads Disclaimers

Want proof? Read mine.

Nobody reads disclaimers. I’m personally amused by the disclaimer that appear in lawyers’ signature files, or those that say “this is not legal advice” when it clearly is. If you label a photo of a dog with a caption that says “cat,” then it’s still a dog. So the above image is not a cup of coffee. Or, if it is, then it’s very hot. So if you drink it and get burned, then you’ve been warned.

Want proof that nobody reads disclaimers? Here’s this weblog’s disclaimer, which I’ve been using for years:

“The opinions expressed herein do not necessarily reflect the opinions of Clock Tower Law Group, its employees, or the author.” (Emphasis added.)

Yes, that’s right, these opinions may not be my own. Or anyone’s for that matter. Read ‘em and weep. Or not.
