German Consumer Group Targets Steam
Steam has come under attack once again from a European Consumer group over its EULA which they say don’t meet the standards of local law. This time around a number of German consumer groups have gone after Steam because it does not allow the resale of digital items which by law is required. Those who opt out of the EULA find themselves unable to play any of their previously purchased games. The consumer groups have given Valve until September 26th to respond to the charges before legal action is sought.
