Valve faces potential court action over Steam user agreement

Tuesday, 25 September 2012 12:09 GMT By Dave Cook

Valve has been posed with a legal claim stating that its end user license agreement on Steam leaves consumers at a disadvantage by forcing them to accept it. More details below.

IGN reports – via CinemaBlend – that The Federation of German Consumer Organization (VZBV) has issued a legal challenge to Valve, stating that Steam forces users to accept its end user license agreement. The rationale is that hitting cancel prevents users from using the service, effectively forcing them to accept.

The group has given Valve until October 10th to respond to the claim or it has stated it will take steps to “resolve the dispute in the court.”

More as it happens.
