Gamers Opt Out - Opt Out of EULA's

We reported to you a new Terms Of Service by Sony on the 15th September regarding section 15 of the agreement. "BINDING INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATION" This newly added clause basically waived your rights to sue them in any future class action lawsuits, that is if you agreed to it.

Many were outraged and had the option to not agree and loose PSN access or to write Sony a letter opting out of the new TOS. A show of hands of those who actually did send a letter would probably amount to very few. Now there's a new method for those of you who want to opt out of any EULA's from game companies such as Sony and EA.

Gamers Opt Out is a website devoted to our rights as an end user. It's co-founders include gamers such as ourselves who are sick and tired of big game corporations who's absurd EULA's delude us from our rights.
A Quote From Their Website:

Gamers Opt Out is a collective of gamers who are sick of absurd EULAs from game companies. These EULAs have clauses preventing class-action lawsuits, though you can opt out of the clauses by sending a letter. We want to make it easier for everyone to opt out because Sony, EA, et al, believe most people won't bother to. Let's show them they're wrong.

We will make it easy for you to create the letter needed to send to these companies and can even send the letter on your behalf at no cost. All we ask is that if you like what we are doing, spread the word or donate to help with the cost of paper and postage.
