Submitted by
Mashiki
Mashiki writes "Following what seems to be a brilliant move by everyone favorite company Sony, EA has amended the terms for ORIGIN their downloading service to include the following clause: "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."

You have until tomorrow(Aug 25th) to opt out, if you want."

    So, does this mean that anyone who agrees to the new terms no longer need worry about civil prosecution for copyright infringement of EA's games?

    You can never relinquish your right to justice. No matter what kind of agreement you make or paper you sign, you can always pursue legal action of any recourse. It's impossible (in America) to give up (or sign away) your right to sue or to press charges.
