Does fine print drive you crazy? Like me, do you find yourself wading through 63-page credit card agreementstrying to understand the legalese but often failing? Don’t you wish there were a site that highlighted the lunacy of this stuff? Well, there is.

Mouse Print is a blog devoted to “exposing the strings and catches buried in the fine print” of all sorts of offers and agreements. Here’s what Edgar Dworsky says about his site:

“Mouse print” is the fine print in advertising, in a contract, or on a product label, often buried out of easy sight. In the worst cases, the mouse print changes the meaning of, or contradicts the primary claims or promises being made. Sometimes, the catch is not even disclosed. In other cases, the fine print is merely an unexpected surprise for the reader. Fine print is not inherently illegal. But, advertisers are not safe from false advertising claims merely because an ad discloses the truth in some minimal manner.

MousePrint.org turns advertising on its head by focusing on an ad’s asterisked fine print footnote rather than the headline. It also examines the often overlooked small print on product labels and contracts. A new ad, product, or contract is featured every Monday. The goal is to help educate the public about the catches or “gotchas” in disclaimers, and to encourage advertisers to abandon the motto, “the big print giveth, and the little print taketh away.”

Here are some examples of the sorts of “gotchas” that Mouse Print highlights:

Mouse Prints has been featuring one new example of fine print shenanigans every Monday since March 2006. It’s fun to leaf through the archives to read examples of the stuff some companies try to pull. My favorite, though, is the entry on the unreadable gibberish at in TV show credits, which takes a light-hearted look at the “vanity cards” of producer Chuck Lorre.
