This is the first ever screen adaption of a Bond novel, made in 1953 for US TV. The hero is played by Barry Nelson (changed to Jimmy Bond of the CIA) and the villain is played by Peter Lorre (better known for the successful ‘Mr Moto’ movies). Because of this adaption, when Eon productions bought the rights to Fleming’s Bond 007 in the 1960s, the couldn’t get Casino Royale as part of the deal. This led to the 1967 spoof version being made, starring Peter Sellers and David Niven. Many years later, Kevin McClory had obtained the rights to Casino Royale for Sony Pictures, and intended to make his own version of it separate from Eon. However, after a large lawsuit, the rights finally went to Eon as part of an out of court settlement in 2000. Finally, Eon were able to give the novel the full movie treatment in their own version, starring Daniel Craig, a few years later.
Terms include binding arbitration with class action waiver to resolve disputes.
Additional requirements will apply.
To be fair, SONY introduced similar language too, basically states, you can’t sue Microsoft, they send you a DoA unit, shut your service off, account gets hacked, too bad so sad.
Interesting Parts of the new Terms and Conditions
“the company may disable access to Microsoft and third-party content associated with your account for any reason.”

I’m not entirely sure what the “other data” refers to or even means but they’re collecting a LOT of data regarding the consumer.
“targeted advertising” and “aggregate data to third parties” is a scary and somewhat none clarified section.
