Well, a disclaimer would be required to say that the key may be stolen or otherwise unable to work because it is invalid for some other reason. That could put them in legal trouble by itself. But insurance doesn’t have to say that. It can just say that it protects you if your key is stolen or doesn’t work.
It’s smart because people pay for it and it keeps them out of trouble. If it weren’t shitty, I’d commend them for it.
And you’re free to do so, but it feels like you’re getting mad at me for being objective. I dunno if you actually are getting mad at me, but it doesn’t really feel like it’s a friendly discussion.
No, but the fact that it was clean before and there has been no fuck-ups since means that it’s mostly clean. What you read about, what got blown up and freaked out over was fairly limited. Maybe 3 months of people finding their keys don’t work, after however many years of business, isn’t that much in the end.
I agree that it never should have happened, and now they’re scummy after it. But the fact remains that, for the most part, they aren’t currently any worse than anyone else. Valve sells busted keys on occasion, I had to buy Dragon Age Inquisition twice because fuck those guys, and one of my Warcraft trial codes was useless even though I got it from a new copy of Diablo 3.
