Origin EULA Amended

As noted on GameSpot, the EULA for EA's Origin service has been amended in a clear attempt to allay fears of intrusiveness inspired by launguage it previously contained. The EULA no longer says you must avoid using the service if you don't want your information to be collected, and EA has also removed the portion saying they may "use this information combined with personal information for marketing purposes and to improve our products and services. We may also share that data with our third party service providers in a form that does not personally identify you." It also no longer states that "EA reserves the right to monitor communications on the Application and disclose any information EA deems necessary." And here is some new language that's been added:

EA would never sell your personally identifiable information to anyone, nor would it ever use spyware or install spyware on users' machines. We and agents acting on our behalf do not share information that personally identifies you without your consent, except in rare instances where disclosure is required by law or to enforce EA's legal rights.

Yeah those people haven't provided one example how EA violated their family or homes yet though I am just extremely pissed when people rant and rant without actually providing at least a proper anecdote.

Having your feelings insulted by imaginary moral values that are not met by a corporation (like thats a surprise ,p) is not a proper rant-reason. Nor is it an anecdote, or a logical non-flawed argument.

But i admit i was trolling this topic because i love poking at EA haters, they all will buy BF3 anyway (if they even remotely ever cared about Battlefield that is)

I don't hate EA, I own quite a few of their games, none of the FPS' since I really could care less about them. Now, since I made the mistake of buying those games through EADM (which is now Origin), and none of this data collection garbage was an issue at that time, I have to install Origin to even get access to them. Am I going to install Origin knowing that they're going to collect data on everything that I do on any of the systems it would be installed on? Um no. Would I care if the data collected was within the scope of the games they sell? Nope. But that's not the case.
