Valve Removes Right for Class Action Claims from EULA

trawg (308495) writes | more than 2 years ago


trawg writes "Valve have joined the list of companies that have altered their terms and conditions to prevent users from filing a class action suit. Their official statement says that such claims "impose unnecessary expense and delay" and are "designed to benefit the class action lawyers". A new arbitration process is also included, in which Valve will reimburse costs (under certain circumstances) when dispute resolution can't be solved through their normal support process."

Valve is only trying to protect themselves (0)

This is the result of a sue happy society. This would not be necessary if defendants and their lawyers were penalized for frivolous lawsuits.

Also, what was the last class action suit where the clients got more than a token payout?

A woman I dated got a $5500 settlement with a drug company over a product's mislabeling. Under the specific circumstances, it was not a token.
