lol okey dokey then
Outraged Crash to lawyer: I WANT TO SUE CCP!
lawyer: Ok - is that a company?
OC: Yes, they make a video game I play where some people have been mean to me!
Lawyer: A…video game? Ah. What damages have been caused to you?
OC: Well…mental anguish! These people in the game HARASSED me in the game and the game company LET IT HAPPEN!
lawyer: *clickclickclick - It looks like all the players of that Eve Online game you’re wanting to sue agree to certain terms before getting to even play that game…so shall I assume you agreed to those terms as well?
OC: Well…yes…but…SOME PEOPLE WERE MEAN TO ME IN THERE!
lawyer: Ok…one of the things you agreed to was that any disputes arising from the game would be settled in accordance with Icelandic law…that’s going to be difficult for me and therefor expensive for you, but we can probably work with that…maybe. The biggest problem will be a legal principle called “assumption of risk.” Say you decided of your own free will to play a sport and you get hit by the ball or even hurt during gameplay that is allowed under the rules of the game that you willingly participated in. Suing is going to be pretty difficult.
lawyer: Actually, mr. Outraged…I don’t think you have much of a winnable case here and frankly it’s going to make me look like a hack to even bring it forward to be slapped down as trivial and a waste of the legal system’s time. I won’t take your case, sorry.
OC: but…but…REEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE I HATES THEM MEANIES! I HATES THEM!
