Re: Terms of Service can't re-write the law.
said by Skippy25:Maybe they can do this in the states, but not in Canada. The law is pretty clear that it takes precedence over any ToSes, and it's been proven a couple of times.
You must of missed the part where AT&T appealed this to the Supreme Court and those morons sided with AT&T and said they can restrict your rights as a consumer and make it harder for you to hold companies like them responsible for their lack of care for their consumers.

For the most part that is true here as well. You will have those morons that come here acting like a TOS or EULA is written in stone with blood and lightning, but there have been many cases that won in court overturning what they say in there.
However, companies will continue to put what they want in them because it does 1 of 2 things: 1.) Scares people as they do think it is written in stone 2.) Make it harder for people to challenge it as a simple request will be referred to the TOS or EULA thus you have to take legal steps to get it changed.
In this case, AT&T lost I believe 3 cases saying the can't remove that right from consumers before it went to the Supreme court and those morons gave it the stamp of approval and or ignorant congress did as well by taking no action to fix it.
