Can we phone in and ask why when Fox news kicked off over Mass Effect the ECA just stood there with its pants around its ankles and said nothing and it was only when the fans did something that anything happened? Can he justify why people should continue to pay fees to an organisation that's done basically nothing about the largest controvercies to hit gaming in a long time and the general lack of correct reporting from major news outlets?

Just wondering.

Hey Luscan,

I think you might be mixing up the ESA and the ECA in their reactions to this story.  The ECA did in fact stand up against FOX News by doing a press release, media interviews and calling on Fox to retract the story.
GamePolitics even covered the ECA's reaction here, http://www.gamepolitics.com/2008/01/28/ecas-hal-halpin-calls-on-fox-news....

Um... You are thinking of the ESA. Hal Halpin Runs the ECA. Entertainment Software Association vs Entertainment Consumer Association.

You could have if you didn't ask for permission here and actually went out and called them.  They gave out their number multiple times.

james_fudgeYeah we could go way way back :)12/24/2014 - 12:56pm
E. Zachary KnightCopyright law in general has been broken since at least 1976. Could be even earlier than that.12/24/2014 - 12:24pm
james_fudgeWhat he said :) They want to make it worse than it already is.12/24/2014 - 12:14pm
Papa MidnightDMCA has been broken since 1998. Good luck getitng Congress to do something about it.12/24/2014 - 11:39am
Craig R.At least they owned up to the mistake. But doesn't change the fact that DMCA is thoroughly broken.12/23/2014 - 5:23pm
MaskedPixelanteSpeaking of Dark Souls OMG I'M MAKING ACTUAL PROGRESS WTH IS THIS WHAAAAAAA12/23/2014 - 10:49am
MaskedPixelantehttp://www.neogaf.com/forum/showpost.php?p=144500932&postcount=740 Yup, DSFix was part of an unrelated take down, and is being resolved.12/23/2014 - 8:04am
prh99Of course had they not done such a rush on the port we wouldn't dsfix to make the game not look and play like ass. 720 internal renders aren't so hot scaled to 1080.12/23/2014 - 7:38am
Papa MidnightIt was most likely an automated tool. Happens all the time. Just another case of the broken DMCA Claim and Takedown process that puts the entirety of the burden of proof on the accused instead of the claimant.12/22/2014 - 10:09pm

MaskedPixelanteSounds like BN was going after an unrelated mod, and took out DSFix in the process. Probably once a counterclaim goes out, this'll all be sorted out.12/22/2014 - 7:04pm

IanCBecause that isn't Max Payne 3. It might have the name, but it isn't an entry in the series.12/22/2014 - 12:48pm
IanCOh theres a Max Payne 3? A proper one, or are we referring to that abomination that Rockstar crapped out a few years ago12/22/2014 - 12:48pm
IanCUpgraded PS3 hard drive to 500gb. Restored 53GB back up. Done the maths, have somehow used up 106GB already?12/22/2014 - 12:44pm
