Sony has had its fair share of legal trouble over the last few months. It’s all thanks to the monumental cluster-**** that happened when the PSN was hacked. Remember? A couple of million user accounts and all the details attached to them were stolen by online rapscallions!
The result is that Sony is, obviously, kind of over having to go to court. There are class-action lawsuits and various additional means of litigation still going on. What Sony has done is, as of 15 September 2011, they’ve transferred PSN and Sony Network Entertainment America accounts over to another Sony group called Sony Network Entertainment International. This means that all PSN accounts need to accept a new End User License Agreement.
Inside the new EULA is a clause that basically says you can’t sue Sony as either an individual or as part of a Class Action group. Ever.
