Electronic Arts has updated its Terms of Service Agreement for the Origin platform. Following Sony's steps, and taking it even further, EA has added a new clause that prevents users from suing them in both class action and jury trial forms. Or in other words, in a scummy move - EA wants you to give up your civil rights.

Well I'm considering cancelling my BF3 pre-order now. But I've already bought Crysis 2 and DeadSpace 2 through Origin so not sure it'd matter if I cancelled BF3 or not.

I'm convinced that if EA pulls crap like this there just handing the victory over to Valve and Steam. :)

comon dude, were you really planning to sue EA? :lol: you know that steam technically owns all your games? so they could go offline tomorrow and you will lose everything, and nothing you can do about it.

If they try to shaft me heck yeah I'd sue them. You wouldn't? No- you're just a good consumer that'll take it no matter how the corporations want to give it to you. :lol:

It's the principle Bob. :)

Nope. Not because it's an EA title either, just not interested.

Someone should start a class action against EA for the EULA they're implementing.

I love living in Canada where you can never ever agree to give up any of your rights under the law.

EA clearly needs $ and are pulling the same tactics as Microsoft in regards to software licenses.

They cannot do this.

Hello,

I've legally installed a single retail purchased copy of Windows on multiple personal computers at my home.

Microsoft cannot do anything about it.

It actually won't affect the individual much - small claims suits can still be filed.
