Sony Adds New PS4 TOS Policy on DRM

Shocking news, DRM is back. It turns out there's actually some people out there in the world that actually read the Terms of Service before selecting "Agree." These people have discovered that Sony perhaps has a secret agenda they've recently started to pursue. It concerns your disc based copies of PS3 and future PS4 games. In short, you're not allowed to resell them without expressed permission. Here's that paragraph of the new Terms of Service some people have already agreed upon:

7. Resale
7.1. You must not resell either Disc-based Software or Software Downloads, unless expressly authorised by us and, if the publisher is another company, additionally by the publisher.

Here's a video by The Red Dragon explaining the situation.

What do you guys think? Is this nothing to worry about? probably not right? Everyone's probably just over reacting. Still though... it wont hurt to sharpen my pitch fork.
