Today is a special day, as we welcome some of the most experienced studios in the gaming industry on Xbox. We are pleased to inform you that Microsoft has entered into an agreement to acquire ZeniMax Media, the parent company of Bethesda Softworks. In fact, what I`m trying to get, has anyone really read these agreements? You can basically only nail yourself on this one and kill your account if you piss them one way or another. Do I think a lot is going to happen? No no. But could they just use this clause to completely revoke your account at any time? Yes, yes. EDIT: DID MY POST GET YOU TO READ THE DAMN AGREEMENT AT LEAST?!? Jeezus humans, live outside their own brains for half a second and see the types of problems that leave booed platform chords careless. I am not a lawyer, but I have been President of the Union for a few years and I deal with like this, which is why I am looking for loopholes that should have been blocked. There is never any harm in reading these chords! (I remember someone received money to read it once.) Hoeg was quick to stress that different countries are subject to different consumer protection laws. “It is interesting to note that while the United States generally protects the ability of a commercial party to define the terms of such a licence, many other jurisdictions are not.” Countries such as Switzerland, Russia and Japan tend to turn more to the consumer in these types of disputes, and ZeniMax ASE acknowledges this, but an agreement is an agreement. Once you click on a CLUM, Hoeg said, you are subject to the terms of that agreement. The agreement between the Commission and Zenimax, strictly speaking an “enforceable company,” comes after a US law firm began collecting evidence against Zenimax last year, again with regard to Fallout 76`s refund policy. At first, PC players who were not satisfied with technical issues or were unable to play the game could claim refunds from Bethesda developers/publishers, but Reddit users then indicated that the company had taken action against claims. They don`t want people walking around, being assholes and using the name zenimax/brand/whatever.
In short, Hoeg stated that under the online agreement accepted by Fallout 76 players, Bethesda and its owner ZeniMax Media are not required to offer refunds. “In general, software is not sold to users, but is licensed,” he said. “That`s why the use of software is subject to the terms of the license agreement.” These conditions are commonly referred to as “conditions of use” or “end user licensing agreement” (BUM). On September 21, 2020, it was announced that Microsoft had reached an agreement with the group to buy the company.  The transaction is expected to take place in the second half of 2021.  “You agree not to use a service to imitate a natural or legal person, including, but not limited to, ZeniMax, an employee of ZeniMax, or related company, or to falsely declare or falsely present its membership in a person or organization;” ZeniMax has also agreed to change its Australian after-sales policies and practices.
