Valve sued in Germany, reselling rights issue appears
Gamers should be able to sell resell their games, the The Federation of German Consumer Organizations has said. To set an example they have sued Valve, the provider of PC and Mac games on their digital distribution service, Steam.
Now I’m not sure how exactly you can resell digital games, but they have said that Valve is guilty of this and it’s something that they won’t stand for.
“Steam users own the games they purchase and should be able to resell them when they want to, just like owners of traditional card or board games can,” said Carola Elbrecht, project manager for consumer rights in the digital world at the VZVB.”
“But while those traditional game owners can resell their games whenever they like, Steam users often cannot.”
It seems they also have a way how people can resell their digital games. They say a Steam user could download a game, burn it on a CD and resell it… WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU PEOPLE?
Look, this is a pretty noble cause… and they are essentially fighting for consumer rights, but they are also aiming the cannon in the wrong direction.
