The lights are on
This past September, Sony updated its Terms of Service agreement for PlayStation Network that would forbid anyone from filing a class action lawsuit against the company. That hasn’t stopped someone from trying.
As reported by GameSpot, a class action lawsuit was filed last month against Sony for the update saying it forced consumers to give up their rights to file a lawsuit or give up signing online to PlayStation Network. The suit claims Sony did not make the updated changes visible enough in the Terms of Service and did not post a version online.
Sony did allow users to opt out of the agreement, but the suit notes they had to send in a written letter within 30 days.
Sony has yet to offer comment on this lawsuit.
lol, I was wondering why Sony filed a lawsuit versus an Ant for a while there. I first read the headline and thought, "wow! and they say Americans are litigious..."
One of the few valid suits out there, I think. They should be allowed to be sued.
However the question of whether any other suit against them is good or not remains up in the air.
