With Sony Entertainment Network we are establishing a comprehensive and global network platform which offers access to entertainment, commerce and community, all from one convenient account. For more information please visit www.SonyEntertainmentNetwork.com

Thank you very much for being a customer!
If you actually take the time to read the terms of service PDF link, you will find that Sony nicely provided a fully annotated change document. In the very first page you find the following:
NOTE: THIS AGREEMENT CONTAINS A BINDING INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATION AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER PROVISION IN SECTION 15 THAT AFFECTS YOUR
RIGHTS UNDER THIS AGREEMENT AND WITH RESPECT TO ANY “DISPUTE” (AS DEFINED BELOW) BETWEEN YOU AND SNEI, SONY COMPUTER
ENTERTAINMENT INC., SONY COMPUTER ENTERTAINMENT AMERICA LLC, THEIR AFFILIATES, PARENTS OR SUBSIDIARIES (ALL ENTITIES
COLLECTIVELY REFERRED TO BELOW AS “SONY ENTITIES”).
Heading to Section 15, here is what you’ll find:
Other than those matters listed in the Exclusions from Arbitration clause, you and the Sony Entity that you have a Dispute with agree to seek resolution of the Dispute only through arbitration of that Dispute in accordance with the terms of this Section 15, and not litigate any Dispute in court. Arbitration means that the Dispute will be resolved by a neutral arbitrator instead of in a court by a judge or jury.
So by agreeing to the terms and conditions (which you need to do to continue doing business with Sony), you are now waiving your rights to seek redress if Sony decides to return to the ‘security apathy’ that wound up with millions of compromised accounts.
What do you think about these changes?
