I think you're missing the point, ZeronHitaro. Consumers should expect a level of protection when they trust a company with sensitive information. While I agree that America is sue-happy, this is not the solution. No company will ever lose a lawsuit against an individual without being afforded an appeal they will eventually win by sheer means of having money to throw around.

They will all do it now. If they can, why shouldn't they? It's win-win for them.
Currently playing: Uncharted 3, Dark Souls, Team ICO Collection, Atelier Totori, Child of eden.

Yeah, this is why statements like Prime Mover's are ignorant. It's an asshole move, but given this is basically free immunity most any company/set of lawyers is going to eagerly leap on this, so you can't really be angry at them (or at least you shouldn't waste your time with a boycott or something) so much as be angry over AT&T and our Supreme Court for enabling this shit.

... Fuck, while I'm not going to hold this against Sony/EA I'm definitely avoiding AT&T as much as I possibly can.

Bamping this for some good olde fashion yuletide hilarity.

Looks like Sony forgot something when they came up with this shenanigan.
In my vision, I see that one of us is going to KO the other.

By the way, I was right about Microsoft adopting similar terms. Fuck, they actually outdid Sony.
