A German consumer rights group is threatening Valve with legal action over its last Steam end-user license agreement update.
The Federation of German Consumer Organisations (FGCO) has sent Valve a desist letter regarding a clause in its last licensing agreement which prevents users from filing class-action lawsuits against the company.
The organisation also wants Steam to comply with a new EU court ruling which states that sellers of digital goods must provide consumers with an avenue to resell said items. No digital game sellers currently offer such a resell option.
The FGCO has given Valve until October 10 to respond before it pursues a resolution in court.
“We think this new dispute resolution process is faster and better for you and Valve while avoiding unnecessary costs, and that it will therefore benefit the community as a whole,” it said.
