By court decision, Steam users have the right to resell their digital copies of games through the trading

Steam site. The French court of first instance ruled: EU laws allow Steam users to resell their games in the same way that they can sell physical media.

Company Opinion

Valve's lawyers tried to convince the court that theirplatform is a subscription service. However, the judges did not see any significant evidence in this, because Valve does not distribute the game as part of the subscription. Moreover, the court pressured that the company's reselling policy does not comply with European laws, according to which digital goods can be easily exchanged. Valve firmly decided to appeal the decision and will not change their rules until the decision is confirmed by other authorities.
