The largest and most famous platform for gamers in the world is Steam, whose audience exceeds 100 million people. For many years, this service, owned by Valve, forbade its users to not only sell games already purchased, but also simply transfer them to someone else. Moreover, even if the owner of the account was dying for any reason, the service refused to re-register the account in his family, as is the case with any physical material things. Today, September 19, 2019, this service is finally "put in place", recognizing its actions as illegal.
For more than three years, lawyers have been working to force Valve to allow the sale and transfer of purchased games, not only inside the Steam service, but also through any other sites, up to eBay. After years of litigation, the Consumer Rights Protection Organization managed to ensure that Steam provides users with the ability to fully dispose of their property. Now, according to the Decree of September 17 from the court of the Paris district, the service is obliged to cancel a number of rules that it established for users in violation of applicable law. For so long, the “judicial war” lasted for one simple reason for users, but a difficult one for bureaucracy.
