Most sites would look to copy and paste the info from a major site (who may have paid someone with legal training to come up with it) - because who would want to pay a lawyer hundreds/thousands for this legalese for every website they build?
Has anyone here ever paid a lawyer to write appropriate T&Cs or Legals for a website?
If no-one has any recollection of paying then perhaps there was once a lawyer paid to write the original legal bit and he's since been ripped off billions of times. Which sounds kind-a funny!
Mind you, I wouldn't be at all surprised to learn that the legal profession uses "templates" for this type of thing...

And you can too - Nolo Press has a lot of "everyday law for the everyman" type of books that I believe have all sorts of boilerplate.
I just checked something -- one of my top pages has literally 86 plagiarizers publishing the exact paragraph cut & pasted from my page.
My page is still top ten out or scores of millions & I never get penalized for duplicate content.
Go by the keywords -- if their site SERPS up when you do a search for your key words go after them. Otherwise, nobody will ever see their page any way.
It's kinda sorta a compliment when I get ripped off.
It's all about the €€€€€€'s
