Re: Even Balance (PUNKBUSTER) Problems

And for those that like when a larger company steps on you, thats ok. I'm one of those people who will fight for my rights. Even over something as simple as a 40 dollar game.

It's all a matter of principle, and I am one of those people who will make a change. I support Even Balance for what they are doing, just not the way that they are going about it.

Umm... that would be the right to play videogames, as guaranteed by the 38th amendment? :-P You're going to lose, and here's why: most vendors retain what is known as the "right to refuse service". Unless they are discriminating against you because of your race, ethnicity, religion, sexual preference, or whatever and you can prove that in court, you're probably going to lose; Even Balance doesn't need "proof" to kick you off their service, this isn't a criminial proceeding where you get judged by a trial of your peers. Especially since you admit that EA tried to "make it right" by offering to replace your CD key. Save yourself a hundred grand or two, lodge a complaint with the BBB and call it a day.

There is no 'right' to play a game you didn't make and technically do not own (you are given the right to use the software - you technically do not own it). You do not have the 'right' to not be banned. They aren't stepping on any of your 'rights.'

I assume you do not own any MS software??? If you do - when do you plan on suing them for their EULA? They tell you what you are allowoed to put their software on (they tell you the numberr of PC's you can load) - just like all of the other software companies....

Fight for your $40. Don't let that stinking company get away with what they done to your cdkey! They should pay.
