The Federation of German Consumer Association (Verbraucherzentrale Bundesverband, VZBV) has submitted a legal complaint over Valve’s lack of haste in making changes to its End-User License Agreement.
Last September, the VZBA threatened to send Valve to court if they didn’t’ change its EULA to allow Steam users to re-sell their digital content. Also, they were not pleased with Valve not allowing an opt-out for users who did not want to sign the new EULA. VZBA’s stance is that digital games should be handled like physical games and the current system is not beneficial to the consumer in the long run.
The VZBA have said they will take the case all the way to the Supreme Court if Valve doesn’t come into compliance with EU law. Valve will be changing its EU, but the VZBA believes that it may be a case of ‘too little, too late.’
