EA inserts class-action prevention clause into Origin EULA
Like Sony before it, EA has added a clause to its Origin EULA which would keep users from bringing a class-action suit against the firm. The updated terms-of-service agreement, once accepted by the participant foregoes the right to sue and have a jury trial, allowing only individual cases to be brought against it. Like Sony’s agreement, the Origin agreement includes an opt-out clause which much be submitted to EA in writing. You can thank AT&T and the Supreme Court for this.
