45. Re: Steam in Hot Water in the EU? Feb 2, 2013, 17:37 eRe4s3r
 
Sometimes I wonder if you guys even understand what Steam is? Because Steam is not like iTunes or rental video/mp3 services... steam does not sell licenses and you can buy a copy of Windows and give it to someone else without any problems... at least with Windows Vista and 7

It would help if you guys would stop mixing up non transferable licenses with what you can buy on Steam. Because on steam, you do NOT buy non transferable licenses. Although Steam could certainly change into this type of store if it wanted, but currently, what you buy on steam, you own. (in the sense that you bought infinite, non restricted access to something INCLUDING THE RIGHT OF RESALE)

At least, if you are European.

Sidenote: This "right of resale" is what the lawsuit is about though. So yeah.. technically you don't have the right, because practically, you don't have a right at all if you can't use it.
