Jakob Nielson has a good rant against Information Pollution:

Information pollution is a worldwide scourge that afflicts not just travelers but everyone. In the United States, for example, you can't buy a lawnmower without a label saying that you're not supposed to mow your feet.

He also links to a 2001 article by design guru Tog: Good Lawyers, Bad Products

The automotive GPS lawyers weren't satisfied with making drivers curse the car company and the GPS manufacturer every time they have to clear the same legal message they've cleared a thousand time before. No, in their fanatic pursuit of zero liability, they've set up the ideal conditions to actually kill people.
