So you’re saying that UBI and EA, which are now pretty cash-healthy enterprises, haven’t been taken to court in a serious, industry-changing set of lawsuits because in the past decade no one has had the financial wherewithal or real desire to represent consumers in a multi-billion dollar industry (one that now dwarfs movies and television and music) against licensed for use practices?
You have a very sweet and optimistic view of legal profession.
I mean…what I’m reading here is that we have an industry that makes a HUGE footprint in the genral consumer marketplace with corporate entities that engage in billions of dollars of cash flow-through, engaging in what we are describing here as practices that are directly adversarial to consumers in the strictest legal sense, and justifying said practices behind legal language and contractual documentation that is flimsy.
And lawyers in the world – none of whom are gamers or familiar with the gaming industry – are willing to take on such an obvious slam dunk win?
Again: it may not be the easy win on “flimsy” language that you’re supposing it is.
