No longer able to make class actions against Microsoft in the U.S.
Do you have a problem with a Microsoft-branded product? Then they can complain and protest to the company, or take the issue to a court and that this judgment. But if several or many users with the same problem and want to join the fight, then that things are complicated and in fact can not. Microsoft says no.
This new “rule” is not really new, the past few months, applies to Xbox Live. According to Fielden, this only goes after any problems that users have can be resolved quickly and efficiently before it reaches a massive Demand for the courts, but the reality is that it could be an incentive for other companies to begin to take the same path.
In the U.S., is cooking a law that would prohibit financial category companies employ these tactics deterrent against a consumer group. But this law would not apply in the case of a company like Microsoft, whose business is clearly another. And if this becomes a trend, then users would be increasingly tied hands, unless they want to solve problems individually.
For now, one thing is clear: any class action against Microsoft probably will end in nothing.
