    I'd sell it for a Core i9000 if I can have it (and relevant hardware) right now.

    what would you sue them for? Realsing that customers don't read terms and conditions. I'd be invoking the term and offering people their souls back in exchange for a years work at the store, I mean that must be how they got the current staff to work for them isn't it.

    "GameStation executives are now assuring all customers that they are not enforcing the Immortal Soul Clause"

    ... not enforcing the clause ... yet!

    Nobody reads them because its a lot of blablabla which normal people do not understand anyway. Besides that, it is for the protection of the company not for protecting the people using their products.

    If I had seen the clause, i probably would still have clicked 'yes', as the clause relates to something which imo, along with gods and wizards, doesn't even exist.

    Don't think so, you agreed to the T&Cs and it wasn't hidden anywhere

    This is just a (very good) publicity stunt to attract attention to the fact that people don't read the TC's. I doubt they ever had any intention of enforcing the clause seeing as the existence of said immortal soul is debatable and if it did exist it would probably an illegal clause.

    In plain engrish, if instead of "immortal soul" they had said "car", they still wouldn't legally be able to enforce that clause, IMO.

    If terms an conditions were written in plain english and were the length of a decent novel more people would probably take the time to read them. Until then most people will simply ignore them assuming simple common sense would prevail if there was a problem.

    How many people actually possess a modicum of common sense?
