Maybe it's just me and I can't seem to think outside the box, but what do Valve gain from this? Besides the potential for lost sales?
Customer satisfaction?

Sounds comparable to a demo, maybe the idea is to get people interested in the games their friends are playing to sell more. I can only really see this strategy working for certain kinds of games, like multi-player/co-op games. Financially it makes little sense for single player games, unless they're new.

They could probably easily limit what games this feature is availble for.
