19. Re: SimCity EULA to be Fixed Jan 23, 2013, 13:44 jdreyer
 
@ Beamer

I agree with your general sentiment, that EA wasn't being evil. I'm sure it was just the case of them thinking, "If a bunch of people find and exploit and use it to give their city $100m that would really create a game imbalance. Lawyer, be sure to put some language in the EULA to prevent that." It's just that they were careless with the language and didn't think through the consequences of wording something so vaguely, especially in the context of a beta.

But given EA's history, it's hard to blame people for overreacting or seeing something nefarious behind it.
