EA’s Origin EULA Proves Even More Sinister

As spotted by the canny denizens of the Escapist forum, there is a quite extraordinary clause in the EULA of EA’s new game service, Origin. One that may well make you think twice about letting the software on your PC. Under the title of “Consent to Collection and Use of Data”, the clause states that by installing Origin you are giving EA permission to “collect, use, store and transmit technical and related information that identifies your computer, operating system, Application usage (including but not limited to successful installation and/or removal), software, software usage and peripheral hardware.”

it means that, but it also means they can go on your computer and see what your installing and using along side the game... like cheats and stuff too.

if you don't like hackers, they have to have this ability (not that it doesn't come with spying on your shit) and I believe they (or punkbuster) have had clauses like this since the beggining.
