    Class action against Microsoft for banning modded XBoxes?

    Are you an Xbox 360 owner recently banned from Xbox Live? Has the ban left you feeling short changed? Perhaps youve experienced other console problems as a result of the ban? If you can answer 'yes' to any of these questions, then US law firm Abington IP wants to hear from you.

    The intellectual property law and consumer class actions specialist has taken an interest in Microsofts well-publicised ban of at least 600,000 gamers from Xbox Live for alleged console modification, with a view to launching a class action lawsuit against the software giant.

    Are they stupid.

    "Sign up just leave your name and address and we can prosecute you."

    Remember, it's America, they may win.

    Why add your name?? US Law and any outcome would haven no bearing in this country.

    I don't think he was suggesting anyone here sign it. It's a "skusey"(copy and paste job)

    From the lawyer's website

    "many people were affected who had nothing to do with piracy" No they weren't

    yes they were. MS have admitted that they have banned some people who have not modded their console

    Says "many people" not "a ridiculously small number of people"

    they will never win serves them right for getting caught ****ing americans they think they can just sue people.huge organisations for something most of the time the people who are suing have done the crime ......

    They should get a warrant to search some of the peoples houses. Then inform activision & co about the pirated games they find.

    They will soon drop the lawsuit.
