Dues Ex vs.Gamestop

So apparently Onlive Square Enix put a coupon with the game that allowed buyers of a boxed PC copy download and play another copy of the game, for free, via OnLive's cloud based network, a $50 value. Gamestop who also has their own digital distribution platform believed this was promoting the competition. So they sent out a letter to their employees instructing them to take out the coupons upon purchase and trash them.
Now I used to buy from there, mostly pre orders and occasional used stuff. But at this point with Gamestop being so damn corporate with everything I think I will be taking my business elsewhere unless I have NO other choice, hell for that matter ill just throw my money away at Wal-Mart from now on. This is the biggest bunch of bullshit I've ever read about. I never thought they would stoop this low. What cool about it is it's a game that I just really don't care about, however Its the principal of the matter that pisses me off. How is this even legal? How do they get away with this stuff. Where's the lawsuit? Whatever happens I hope they end up paying out a TON of money. Too bad Gamestop turned into the corporate Wal-Mart of gaming stores.
