Games I think we need to start a digital rights category or something (the next version of OSNews will have it, for sure), because we have yet another article about this subject. After Sony removed the Other OS feature from the PlayStation 3, a European PlayStation 3 owner successfully secured a partial refund from Amazon under the European Sale of Goods Act. Sony has now retaliated, stating it is not going to reimburse retailers.

Well, manuals are almost universally available on the manufacturer's website.

In the US, retailers are required to make available all warranty information upon request.

The same isn't true for EULAs.
I think for software, consumers should be required to physically sign a EULA at the point of purchase.

This would do wonders eliminate them, or at the very least keep them sane.
