TheBlueStig I have not heard of those lawsuits, but nothing surprises me with capitalism.

One thing is clear tho, as soon as one market starts this practice it will infect other products/markets like a virus. It breaches basic trading laws/legislation, quite possibly even breaches human rights.

Google "selling ipad may soon be illegal" and you'll find the stories on it. The people who make the chips inside the devices are claiming legal dominion over what happens to those chips.

If these lawsuits go the wrong way (against consumers), the same ruling could be used for EVERYTHING that's able to be sold used, from houses, to TV's, to cars, to all electronics, to videogames, to pretty much anything you can buy that has more than one component inside it, or more than one contributor involved in making it.

There's also a bill called H.R. 287 that if it passes, every game made before the ESRB ratings system was started would be illegal to sell or rent. That's more than 20 YEARS worth of classic games that would instantly be illegal in the USA.

Yes, but they're talking about video games, not a ****ing house!
