In this first episode of "Virtual Legality", a continuing series discussing the law, video games, software, and everything digital, attorney Richard Hoeg of The Hoeg Law Business Law Firm (Hoeg Law), discusses Bethesda's recent issues surrounding refund requests and Bethesda's Fallout 76.
Discussion focuses on Mr. Hoeg's comments in GameDaily.biz's November 27th, 2018 article "Bethesda under fire for Fallout 76 refund policies" (https://gamedaily.biz/article/409/bethesda-under-fire-for-fallout-76-refund-policy) and the Bethesda/Zenimax Terms of Service (https://bethesda.net/en/termsofservice).
Any and all feedback is appreciated. Let us know what you think!
(NOTE - Unfortunately, the streaming software we were taking a spin with got stuck upon resizing a screen on the Bethesda EULA. Thus, the second half of the video only shows the first section of the document (but the analysis is still good!).
Apologies there. Follow along with the discussion at https://bethesda.net/en/termsofservice).
DISCUSSION IS PROVIDED FOR INFORMATIONAL PURPOSES ONLY AND IS NOT TO BE CONSTRUED AS LEGAL ADVICE. INDIVIDUALS INTERESTED IN THE LEGAL TOPICS DISCUSSED IN THIS VIDEO SHOULD CONSULT WITH THEIR OWN COUNSEL.
