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.

The problem is either the consumer won't bother reading it or because they have to read and sign something they won't purchase the product. In case "A" I reckon the consumer deserves what he/she gets, in case "B" the companies and retailers would never allow this to happen because it could hurt their sales and of course their profits (which are often somewhat marginal at the retail level).
