23. Re: Steam in Hot Water in the EU? Feb 2, 2013, 06:40 eRe4s3r
 
Who knows... Likely Steam will do what you said last, make it an EU only option.

But let's not get ahead of ourselves. The EU courts ruled that, no matter what the EULA SAYS, you are allowed, and have the RIGHT, to resell a game you bought. But German courts haven't exactly agreed on the issue so far (they probably want to have the government make a specific law about it, because currently the EU law hasn't been transferred fully over.. I am actually hoping this lawsuit works out because the next targets would be the publishers (EA!, UBISOFT) who deadlock games via account registration and make them nontransferable.

I hope this brings about change because the way I see it, when I buy something, I have the right to sell it. EU courts agree. German courts have not really decided yet...
