Sony's new PSN terms of service doesn't quite sit right with some gamers, since it asks them to waive their consumer rights in order to use the service. Fortunately, there's a get-out clause that Sony has deftly provided. It takes a little effort, but you'll have the thrill of knowing you did something American!

In order to opt out of the class action waiver, you need to confirm it with Sony -- in writing -- within thirty days. You need to include your name, your address, your PSN account number, and a clear statement that you do not wish to resolve any potential legal disputes with Sony through an arbitrator. 

I'm not a fan of suing anybody, but on prinicpal alone, I am fairly certain I'll be sending a letter tomorrow, just because I like preserving my rights wherever possible. For many people this isn't a big deal, and that's cool, but if you are concerned, at least Sony provided a way out.

Here's the address you must send your letter to:

SNEI 
6080 Center Drive 
10th Floor 
Los Angeles, CA 90045 
ATTN: Legal Department/Arbitration

Video: Lindsay Lohan is suing GTA V creators over use of her likeness

Lindsay Lohan has filed a law suit against Rockstar, the creators of Grand Theft Auto V. The suit claims Lohan's likeness is used in the game, without her permission, based on the character of Tracey Jonas. It's a pretty far-fetched claim, and sure not to go far. But it is worth a good laugh.more
