    Default Valve due in court over refusal to allow resale of digital games



    Last year, the European Union courts ruled that digitally downloaded games must be allowed to be sold on by the consumer. This immediately led them into conflict with Valve, with consumer advocacy group Verbraucherzentrale Bundesverband e.V. (VZBV) filing a claim against Valve in the German court system.


    VZBV have now spoken up again, claiming that they are hopeful the case will go to trial this year. VZBV representative Eva Hoffschulte claimed that while “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.”


    There has been no official word from Valve since the case was first lodged, other than a comment from Doug Lombardi that they had “not yet seen the actual complaint”.

    And yet it was also ruled that licenses to software could not be resold because you have bought the right to use the software, you don't actually own it.

    Sorry, but I think Valve will win this and even if they don't, the new beta updates have shown that they are planning some sort of sharing or resell feature.

    Some people, I tell you! If you own a physical copy sure, sell it! Spend the $20 on a valve game, I don't feel you should be able to sell it. It's only $20. I'm over it. I hope Valve wins!!!
