    As you read this remember the mantra on the left that no corporation ever does anything good without the government stepping in to force their hand, and that none of them will ever do anything more than absolutely necessary to keep from getting into trouble.

    Sony Giving I.D. Theft Insurance to PSN Users | ForeverGeek

    My guess is that, if the government got involved, Sony would have to extend the subscriptions and pay damages for any losses their customers sustained. That would take years, and not really help anyone that actually had their identity stolen.

    Sony, totally on its own, is giving them all a free game, a free month of play, an extension of all subscriptions, and a $1,000,000 insurance policy.

    If only the government would step up and fix this since Sony obviously will not be doing anything. :eusa_whistle:

    It's called cover your ass in an attempt to stave off the lawsuits and to keep people from finding another mindless, yet more reliable, ways to piss away their money.

    There's something about words like 'free', 'freedom' and 'liberty' that I just don't like. I prefer the government control everything.

    Really?

    Do you think any class action lawsuit they settled would have resulted in a deal anywhere near that good for the customers? Are you just upset because the lawyers won't be getting any money off this?

    Yep. It's a good business decision.

    But the OP showed no signs of being interested in intellectual honesty to begin with.
