Steam User Loses Almost $1800 in Games Due to Ban [Updated]

A post on Reddit's gameswap forum outlines the plight of someone whose Steam account has been permanently disabled, preventing his access to 149 games that SteamCalculator says were worth a total of $1794.52. This stems from a previous attempt to sell this account, which is a violation of the Steam Subscriber Agreement, as it states: "You are entitled to use the Software for your own use, but you are not entitled to: (i) sell, grant a security interest in or transfer reproductions of the Software to other parties in any way, nor to rent, lease or license the Software to others without the prior written consent of Valve." The user asked Steam support if he's been permanently disabled, and was told: "Correct, you lose access to your account permanently for violating our Subscriber Agreement." We contacted Valve for comment on this a couple of hours ago, but they have not responded. Thanks Joao via Ars Technica. Update: A post on the Steam Users' Forums from Valve says: "The article doesn't mention that the account has been re-enabled."

Really lame example dude. Gold sold second hand is pretty much the same as it was when purchased new. Physical books are pretty much the same experience as they were new unless pages have beeen torn out. Its the craziest ****ng concept in the world, only imagineable by greedy stingy people who can't have enough money to restrict the sale of something that has been purchased. I always believed that restricting rights to use software in an "illegal" manner were justified. Restricting people from selling a license to something they legally purchased is ********. Nothing but greed so they can have an infinite supply of cash coming without investing an infinite supply of work.
I'm sorry to inform the general public that vaccines DO NOT bestow upon thee eternal life. If you're around the age of 80 you need to be making your peace with God or the easter bunny. Whichever you believe in.
