New Website Allows Gamers To Opt Out Of EULAs

Remember a month of so ago, when we brought you news that Sony was adding an arbitration clause to its End User License Agreement? Presumably as a tactic to prevent class-action lawsuits?  Remember how the EULA offered you a chance to opt out of signing away your legal rights by sending Sony a letter? If you're like me, you thought, "I should do that!" and then didn't do it -- finding a stamp and piece of paper is kind of a hassle, and the whole thing is a pain in the ass, right?  It's almost as if Sony didn't create an easy way to opt out through an email or an online form because they count on people being lazy and not doing it. Shocking, I know.

Anyway, lazy gamer, today is your day. A group of fellow travelers and humanitarians have created an organization called "Gamers Opt Out" to provide an easy, no-mail way to not screw yourself out of basic legal protection.  Funded through donations, Gamers Opt Out promises to create the letter you need and send it, at no charge. All you have to do is visit the site and sign up online.

You can opt out of the arbitration clauses in both the PSN and Origin. When you're done giving your information out to the letter carriers, if you have a couple bucks sitting around, donate it to them for stamps. These people are doing the Lord's work, and right now have over 2,000 letters to send.  That's a lot of stamp-licking!
