    Isn't NDA violation a crime? So for doing a crime he has lost some games. I say he got off easy. Respect the freaking NDA. People think since it's digital and it's about a game so it's alright to break it. Grow the hell up. 

    That aside, there are quite a few downsides to put your collection into a digital library. You break the rules, you'd lose your account. That's just one of them. However, what's the alternative? They ship you physical discs? That's more like a reward than a punishment. Or maybe they shouldn't ban anyone who has paid them a cent no matter what they do? 

    I read a lot of posts about consumers right. Which is cool, I don't have anything against that. But I am not sure what would be the solution here. Of course I am not talking about banning people for no reason or such. But when someone deserves a ban, what should a company be doing?
    Most company NDAs are civil as there are no federal or state laws that prohibit people from violating them.  They can do something with your account which they have full control over or take you to court or arbitration for compensation of damages and you can do the same to them. 

    Federal government NDAs are usually tied to actual laws like violations of national security and theft.

    But all of this is just opinion so do your own research.

    The car analogy had me thinking.

    Even buying a car is kind of like getting a MMO. To use your car legally, you still have to pay a subscription (registration, car insurance), and still get hit with micro transactions in the form of gas and maintenance.

    Sure you still have the car, but would get in trouble a lot easier (if you didn't pay your registration, car insurance) than if you bought a MMO, did a bit of work and used it on a private server. Hell, some even allow it such as EQ with p99.

    Got me thinking even more how so many places charge to allow you to park your car. Being hit with micro transactions left and right!

    Wait until "they" try charging you by the mile for using your car.

    Or my favorite... now that they force you to use a toll tag/transponder.  They simply do the math between tolls and send you a ticket in the mail for speeding.

    It's coming...

    California ran something last Nov (2017) where they had digital readers in cars who tracked the mileage. And were pretty much convinced that they were going to implement a mileage tax. The irony is sweet to be sure. But I really thought it would have been implemented by now. Guess they waited until they let the numbnuts out their vote themselves a (illegal) gas tax into law Brown passed in the middle of the night. SO now the state has free reign to do what they want to people I guess when it comes to motor vehicles.

    I expect some sort of chip in the registration stickers or in the plates themselves (because then they can force people to pay for a new set of plates to boot) and everyone will not only be tracked per mile but also where they go. Of course they will say thats not going to happen but yeah whatever.

    Did they find out if his library was already barren before the ban?

    There is evidence that suggests that this was his one and only game.  Someone posted a vid a page or two back and Yongyea did one as well.
