I had a dose of that with a client who spent a couple of grand on a small GIS package before Cyprus joined the EU. Because the software was not fit for his purpose I used the 'not agreeing to this licence' ploy (the licence terms being the 'not fit for purpose' concerning ownership of data). The vendor came back with the 'But it said on the packet' ploy. I just gave them the CD back, and asked for the price to be refunded. They refused, my client sued, and the other side fortunately had a good lawyer who sent us a cheque.

I don't know if there were any test cases for this, but as long as you didn't click through the licence agreement on install, you were going to win. We sued for fraud.
