No lawyer would be able to prove that. Mainly because of the TOS and EULA of the game the guy agreed to when he downloaded, installed, and played the game. And even if the lawyer could prove that no judge would agree to that for the same reason.06/08/2012 04:34 AMPosted by BACONIf the lawyer can prove its unfair, and the judge agrees, thats that.
I'm no lawyer, but I don't think you can make a claim for time lost spent enjoying entertainment. Similarly lawyers don't charged or seek damages by /played time.06/08/2012 04:34 AMPosted by BACONBlizz still owns the gold and items in game. Even if they lose them, they owe you nothing. You'll never get a class action off the ground as LEGALLY no harm has been done to you.
Except for the hours played and money lost. If this guy is a lawyer that means he probably charges anywhere from 100 to 1000 an hour. I have a little over 150 hours on my characters. 150 x 1000 = 150,000 = lots of money.
Just because I go to a restaurant and sit in a chair and the chair fails it doesn't mean that because they own the chair, legally no harm has been done to me because its 'their chair.'
additionally, it doesn't mean that a judge can't set legal precedent even if the company has the user trapped in a corner with a license agreement or contract.
If the lawyer can prove its unfair, and the judge agrees, thats that. It wouldn't be hard to draw parallels for most people, especially considering they're allowing their items to be sold between users for REAL MONEY.
