Stop discrimination against Iranian users of Origin.

This petition had 1,026 supporters


Hello.
Recently, Iranian users of EA's online gaming platform (Origin) have been denied access to Origin and as a result, their purchased games.


The reason was declared to be because of the US embargo and sanctions while the US sanctions have been officially lifted according to the agreement of Geneva and even so, there is no such a law enforcing a US entity or company to deny access of products to Iranian which were purchased legally elsewhere.

and according to US treasury “Clearly the focus of our sanctions is not on video games,” U.S. Treasury spokesman John Sullivan said.


So while The sanctions are over and other companies in the US like Steam, are not behaving Iranian gamers like EA is, we demand EA company to take this unnecessary action back and be the good gaming platform it used to be for all of us. Gamers who supported your games in a country with no Copyright law and other economic problems that makes owning legal video games a lot harder and more expensive than any other place in the world.


Thank you.
