Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Hi, My name is***** am an attorney with over 16 years experience. Hopefully I can help you with your legal question.
I am sorry to bear bad news.
What you are describing is not something that would be a viable lawsuit.
I am familiar with what you are describing...many "freemium" games use this tactic...they make it so you have to pay real money to advance.
But this tactic would not be a basis for a lawsuit
This is the part of my job I don't like...when the law is not in favor of my customer. I wish I could tell you that you can sue them but I can only provide you information based on the law so that you can act on the best available information to you...I wish I had better news, but can only hope you recognize and understand my predicament and don't shoot the messenger. I'm sorry!
Please let me know if you have more questions. I am happy to help if I can. Otherwise, please rate the answer so I may get credit for my work.
