Origin Adds Anti-Lawsuit Language to TOS

Electronic Arts has amended it's Terms of Service to include anti-lawsuit language, following a Supreme Court ruling that prompted a similar move by Sony. Kotaku outlines the new language:
"By accepting these terms, you and EA expressly waive the right to a trial by jury or to participate in a class action.

YOU UNDERSTAND THAT BY THIS PROVISION, YOU AND EA ARE FOREGOING THE RIGHT TO SUE IN COURT AND HAVE A JURY TRIAL.

YOU AND EA AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING."

Your lengthy text has a huge flaw on a basic assumption..

0.01% read the EULA, and 0.001% understand it completely. And of those maybe 3 or 4 guys even care enough, to bother about a game EULA with the effect to do something.

That means maybe once every 6 full moons, 1 guy makes a stink about the EULA of SERVICE X - because he has an agenda to bash it, or because he is fanboy of "competing service Y"

In Europe the EULA's can not limit your basic rights. So they can write whatever they want, nobody here cares (unless its license related restrictions...) ie. DRM

Also you will see this TOS term included EVERYWHERE. The US Court system was always known to be beyond salvation. But that supreme court ruling has damaged the law beyond repair, it was a WRONG WRONG WRONG decision guided by some agenda and corporate ass-kissing of the judges.
