Sony Sued Over Changes To Online Terms of Service

A man in Northern California has filed a lawsuit against Sony over the recently revised terms of service and user agreement for its online services, alleging that the company is conducting unfair business with consumers.
 
In September, the company inserted a new section into its ToS that stated users cannot enter into a class action lawsuit against Sony unless Sony agrees to the initiation.
 
This move came in the wake of the PlayStation Network breach earlier this year, during which millions of user accounts on Sony’s onlive services were compromised by a cyber attack.
 
New court documents obtained by Gamasutra, and filed late last month, are on behalf of all those customers who owned a PSN account before the changes to the ToS occurred.
 
The suit alleges that Sony is forcing PSN users to effectively give up access to online privileges they had already paid for, or give up the right to file a lawsuit against the company.
 
It also suggests that Sony purposely buried the new clause near the bottom of the ToS and made it difficult to access the form online.
