Facebook Must Refund Purchases Made By Children

This case is such a no-brainer that I have no idea how it took over four years to reach this decision. Sure there could be adults that claim the purchases were made by a minor when they weren't but I don't think that is the case in the majority of these claims.

It’s the culmination of a class action lawsuit brought against the social network in February 2012 by two children and their parents over purchases of the discontinued virtual currency Facebook Credits, now known as Facebook Payments, made using the parents’ credit cards. The currency was designed as a site-wide form of payment for virtual goods within games like Farmville and Bejeweled.
