It looks like there’s more to the new terms of service Sony put out a few days ago. We know Sony reserves the right to take whatever we make online for itself, but there’s an even more interesting term that got overlooked. Under article three entitled Community Code of Conduct, Sony explains how anything we say or do over the network can, and probably will, be recorded whether we like it or not.
Is it me or does this remind anyone else of something Skynet might do? Let’s try not to look at this as being a way for the people at Sony to listen to us complain about how some girl (or boy) isn’t returning our phone calls or text messages. From a business standpoint Sony can listen to what we say and where we go on the web and get ideas about products to make without sending out surveys that no one will fill out. The whole thing is still a bit creepy though.
