It's like they're preparing for all the fallout.

Who can blame them? People are sue happy. Anything they don't like or that can be taken advantage of usually results in a lawsuit.

Corporate America.... Companies really should not be able to prevent the consumers from using the justice system. Good thing some judges throw out the EULA.

Consumers can still sue individually if it's warranted. This is more a measure against lawsuit happy lawyers

Know the rules well, so you can break them effectively.

Using our money to pay the lawyers and people looking get easy money. That's good idea.

How did I not hear about this when it happened? This is a bigger fail than when the court ruled that corporations are people.

EULA's aren't legally binding right?

I'm pretty sure if MS does something blatantly illegal they can still get their asses sued off.

That would be in criminal courts. Class action is civil courts. EULAs today basically state you have 1 right as a consumer and that is to give them your money. After you do so you aren't even entitled to receive anything, own nothing, could have service denied for any or no reason and you cannot sue en masse. If you want to sue you must put up the millions of dollars yourself as an individual or bend over and take it.
