My point was that people think EULA are illegal. They are not as they are contracts. Specific provisions may be unenforceable depending on the clause or local law, but even that in no way makes them "illegal". People need to get it into their brains that EULA are contracts an are enforceable world wide.

I know what you were saying, I just have no idea why you are quibbling about the terminology applied when you understand perfectly well what they meant. Just because someone enters into a contract does not mean the terms are always binding. It really depends too much on the details to make generalizations IMHO.

If EA kills your account because they have proof that You withheld a bug during the beta, then you have no recourse. There is nothing illegal about it. Even if proving it would be quite difficult.

If the products depend on access to the account and there is no refund or recourse then I can see a lawsuit challenging that sort of provision happening and I could see merit in it but again, it depends on where its being challenged.
