When a major third party video game publisher deigns to change its mandatory terms of use, the gaming community takes notice. And when your favorite YouTube legal commentator puts forth his own thoughts on the change, well...the gaming community takes notice of that as well.

Join us as we dive once more into Ubisoft's new Terms of Use document to discuss, among other things, just why it's so complicated, and what areas really are worthy of concern.

We lay siege to these terms, not for honor, for that is a far cry from our purpose, but for clarity. That is our creed...in Virtual Legality.
