Steam Game Resale EU Court Case This Year?

Blend Games has a follow-up to word that Germany's Verbraucherzentrale Bundesverband (VZBV) was pursuing legal action against Valve over how Steam's policies conflict with a recent EU legal ruling requiring digitally sold games include an ability to be resold by consumers. At the time this legal action was first proposed Valve said they had not seen an actual complaint in this case, but according to VZBV spokesperson Eva Hoffschulte, this is moving forward, and they hope this lands in court by the end of this year: "Unfortunately a date of the trial is not fixed, we hope it will take place this year. Until then, it is not realistic that Valve will change their policy. But our chance to win the process is very good and that will be really an improvement for consumers: then they can sell their games to others."
