    Gotta love a "contest" with no terms, an unclear entry process and no actual details of the prize.

    Much better now.

    Having worked with my company's legal department (and outside specialized counsel) on a contest/give-away a few months ago and seen the complexities if you really want to make sure you are not violating any rules, I would never even contemplate doing it again. Now, perhaps my employer is a greater target for someone suing over non-compliance than the FTU organizers or whoever is doing this give-away, but I still have to wonder if the risk is worth the reward here.

    Pretty clear to me. The winner gets free entrance to FTU (saves the $100 registration fee) and an invite to Freddies (which is free to invited guests). Not that complicated.

    Now for the FB like - what if you don't use FB - seems you need to have another way to participate for the random selection.

    Based on the terms:

    I assume everyone who likes FTU on Facebook wins a free ticket. Or am I mistaken? (It does seem odd that they're only choosing to announce one winner at random when this is likely to generate hundreds of winners).:rolleyes:

    And a free ticket to the next FTU -- is that admission to the event, or transportation to the event? :D

    I'm just having fun, I was probably the first person to enter.

    Indeed. The initial post was missing quite a few details.
