Sony's PlayStation Network, a service with massive privacy and security flaws exposed over the last year, asks users to agree to never ever sue Sony

Well. Good luck with that. Sony is getting ready to ban users from its Playstation Network if they don't agree to waive their right to collectively sue the company. Users will be asked to sign a new agreement the next time they log on to the network, where the new language is buried in the fine print.

If individual users do have a quarrel with Sony, it will have to be settled by an arbitrator selected by...Sony! Those guys have thought of everything.

Yes, this is heinous, but if people reading this aren't realizing it's already *standard* procedure with 99.9% of the 'user agreements' they've clicked 'Accept' or 'OK' to in the past, they're not paying attention. Sony is simply late to the party of Corporate 'it's not our fault and you can't win or else you don't get to play.' Why is this even being talked about when this kind of defensive language is already woven into almost every other end-user license agreement out there, and has been for quite some time?
