EA includes class action clause into Origin EULA


According to GamersMint, EA has revised it’s EULA for it’s digital distribution service Origin, following in the footsteps of Sony and adding a class action clause to the fine print. What this means is that this addition prevents gamers from suing or having a jury trial against EA and their Origin digital distribution service. Only individual cases will be allowed to be brought against the company and service. Also similar to Sony, EA is offering an opt-out clause to this, but it requires that users send a written application to EA.

The new clause isn’t all inclusive for everyone, however. Those of you living in Quebec, Russia, Switzerland or the member states of the European Union are exempt. Not really sure why – are you guys less sue-happy?

Let us know what you think of this new move by EA in the comments section below.
