Sega’s Amusing Response To Anti-SOPA Letter

Allen January 13, 2012 News 1 Comment

To some, the Stop Online Piracy Act is a scary thing. It is intended to give copyright owners some degree of control over “rogue sites” by allowing them to request blocks on offending websites, whether they host the content or post links to it. SOPA has been criticized for resembling a bill that would allow censorship and Internet regulation and while the jury is still out on just how scary SOPA is, leave it to Sega to help make light of the situation. When a gamer sent an impassioned plea to the company, little did he expect to receive such a hilariously awkward response.

Here is Sega’s suggestion on how to handle SOPA:

“Generally these issues are caused by bad installs or junk data that’s stuck in the system’s memory. The first suggestion would be to perform a hard reset on the device. It’s best to attempt this any time you experience performance problems with your device or have an app crash. If that doesn’t work, it’s suggested you uninstall the app, perform a hard reset, reinstall and then perform one more hard reset before launching the game.

“If you’re problems continue, please let us know.

Best Regards,
SEGA Customer Support”

Thanks for the laugh, Sega!
