By "pretty sure" I mean that I haven't bothered to look at all the countries outside of the one I live in. EU is a mix of country and EU laws. If YOU want to research it for other countries feel free.

One of the ones I have heard about is germany. I've heard that in germany, it could potentially be if its agreed to before purchase. Steam asks you to agree before purchase.
Then it's always a good thing that you should probably look up the case law before opening your mouth isn't it? Otherwise you wouldn't know what you're talking about, much like you have in all of your previous posts including this one. Or how the harmonization of laws and regulations across the EU impacts this, though interpretation of said regulations and laws at a country level differ based on each countries own case laws and precedents.

So, regardless of whether or not steam "asking" you anything. A "click through" is not considered anymore valid than "shrink wrap". Another reason why steam had to setup a satellite in the EU,and another in Estonia.
