FREE SPEECH POLICE: Microsoft To Investigate Your Private Data & Ban You From Their Services If They Find Offensive Language Or Content
"Better watch out if you are playing Xbox, get ticked, and cuss. Microsoft might ban you for the “offensive language.” If they do, then say bye-bye to your Xbox Gold Membership and any Microsoft account balances.

Or if you and a significant other are getting hot and heavy via Skype, you better watch your language and any nudity because that, too, can get you banned. The ban hammer could also fall if Cortana is listening at the wrong moment or if documents and files hosted on Microsoft services violate Microsoft’s amended terms.

The changes are part of the new Microsoft Terms of Services agreement that go into effect on May 1 and cover a plethora of Microsoft services.

Civil rights activist and law student Jonathan Corbett took the time to read the new terms and sounded the alarm.

Microsoft provided a summary of the changes; number 5 reads:

In the Code of Conduct section, we’ve clarified that use of offensive language and fraudulent activity is prohibited. We’ve also clarified that violation of the Code of Conduct through Xbox Services may result in suspensions or bans from participation in Xbox Services, including forfeiture of content licenses, Xbox Gold Membership time, and Microsoft account balances associated with the account."

I love how it says this:

Don’t publicly display or use the Services to share inappropriate content or material (involving, for example, nudity, bestiality, pornography, offensive language, graphic violence, or criminal activity)

Yet a bunch of video games contain material with exactly that in them.

lol


Don't get me wrong, I'm not complaining about the video games at all.. just pointing out the fact that they don't want you doing anything of that sort, while you're on their device playing games where you are doing offensive, violent things.

Windows 7 and the Xbox360 are the last items I will ever buy from MS.

PS4 and Nintendo FTW

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 76403932



most major tech companies like microsoft and their sister companies will be doing quiet mergers in the background for a while.


In 12 years or so I predict a company that doesn't exist today will own and operate the majority of the worlds civilian communications systems
