$35 million to a company this large? They find more than that in their sofa cushions
lol $35 million.ActiBlizz made over $5 billion in 2022 alone. $35 million is an accounting adjustment at that point.
And now where the money goes? ...
It's a penalty or fine, not a settlement.
35 million...! Blizz makes that in token sells a week alone.
The money just goes into the pockets of corrupt politicians because none of the victims will get a dime.
This won't even make them blink.
Good. As noted in the article, Companies never actually pay enough fines to make up for the rules they broke. Cheat the system, make a billion, pay a million fine, is common place. so please, every acronym agency and regulatory body, have at it. Take your pound of flesh. Work every possible angle, every footnote of law. Give them constant financial reminders of the repercussions of their actions, for years to come.
That's... yeah. Not much changes in the end. I disagree with ability to pretty much always settle.
