Out of Territory Orange Box Deactivations

The Consumerist has word that owners of The Orange Box are having their games deactivated if they own a copy intended for a territory other than where they are located (thanks Mike Martinez and Digg). The games activated properly, but after about a week, Steam began returning "incorrect territory" errors in these cases, surprising many users who purchased online or even in local stores, unaware their copy was intended for another region. This is leaving impacted customers in the often difficult position of seeking refunds for opened software.

Exactly why I vowed to never buy another steam game after I bought HL2. Steam was buggy and flawed back then and it still is. For me it never worked on paper or in practice.
