SuperTaz Posted December 22, 2017 Share Posted December 22, 2017 https://www.pcgamesn.com/valve-accc-lawsuit The Australian Federal Court has thrown out two appeals by Valve in a case between the company and the Australian Competition & Consumer Commission (ACCC). The dismissal of the two appeals means that Valve will have to pay a $3 million penalty. The case dates back to 2014, with Australian consumers complaining that they were not able to get refunds on games bought through Steam, something that is allowed under Australian Consumer Law, which states that “all consumer goods or services come with automatic consumer guarantees that they are of acceptable quality and fit for the purpose for which they were sold. If they are not, consumers have a right to a remedy, which may include refund, repair, or replacement in certain circumstances. These consumer rights cannot be excluded, restricted, or modified.” 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
