They spent $2,000,000 on lawyers, fines, courts, advertising, and administration in order to give out just $2,000 to just 11 people. That's just not a good process.

Sony sued over PSN "can't sue us" clause – Video Games Reviews, Cheats | Geek.com
Sony had an idea: they put a "you can't sue us with class-action" clause in their contracts. Then others (Microsoft, Electronic Arts) did the same thing. Now Sony is getting sued (as a class action) for unfair business practices. Will something like this be allowed? Would that end class actions forevermore?
