Microsoft user agreements will block class-action suits

http://j.mp/JxK0zj  (GeekWire)

   "In the future, if you have a problem with a Microsoft consumer
    product and want to take the company to court, you could be
    prevented from banding together with your fellow users in a
    class-action lawsuit.  That's the effect of updated user
    agreements being rolled out by Microsoft. The new terms require
    users to give up their rights to participate in class-action suits
    against the company. Instead, they'll need to go to arbitration or
    small-claims court."
