Microsoft Joins in Forbidding Class-Action Lawsuits Following Supreme Court Ruling

| | Comments (0)
MicrosoftAs part of Microsoft's recent Xbox 360 console update, Microsoft updated its terms of service to forbid users from participating in class-action lawsuits and requiring arbitration in the event of legal action. Sony did the same things in September. While reprehensible, essentially taking away consumer's rights to hold large companies responsible for their actions, Microsoft is just doing what every other large company is doing since a recent supreme court ruling. Once the Supreme court decided that it was OK to forbid class-action lawsuits and require arbitration, virtually all large companies are doing so, as it lowers potential future legal costs.
