Sony has announced that recent amendments to the terms of the online services that prohibits class action lawsuit was triggered by a decision of the U.S. Supreme Court, in a gesture that suggests that other companies are going to follow in kind .
The last modification is covered by individual binding arbitration section of the Court, which in practice means that consumers have given up their right to be represented as part of the class. So Sony Disputes "will take place in only one individual," and the company sued the wider group of people.
U.S. Supreme Court has seen the AT & T Mobility must not prevent a person from bringing class action lawsuits against the company hired, including a clause of newspapers. Because of how much money and effort to the dispute can not be chewed this plan to save the company in cash or a stack heavy '. Sony focuses on the idea that people are much less likely to take their claims in arbitration proceedings themselves.
If you do not want to be included in that, you have a choice. Gamasutra reports that, by sending a physical letter to the company may choose not to. Sony has no plans to do so, either, but in theory will stop the enemy in this case, the case never gets dragged before a judge.
