    European Union court: Consumers have the right to re-sell their Digitally Distributed games

    in Gaming Discussion on 08 July 2012

    Jumpin said: People will be able to legally sell copies of their game while retaining access to the original. Sure, but they can't use the game legally after that, otherwise they're engaging in piracy. "Retaining access" is legal, playing the game isn't. How is this different from copying a DRM-free DVD and giving the copy to your friend while continuing to use a...

Why would it not be feasible?   Because there is no way it can be done in a feasible and convenient manner. It means one of the following things:1. That courts have endorsed charging money...

    IIIIITHE1IIIII said:However, EA use this bullshit code system "online pass" where only one account is able to play online unless you buy more codes. In other words, used copies will require a new code once purchased... Smart move, EA. How long until things like "online passes", DLC and virtual items in F2P games are ruled to be equivalent to software licenses, and thus are forced to...

It would essentially kill the concept of selling digital copies and will maybe happen I wouldn't be surprised if one day, things like DLC and virtual items sold in free-to-play games were also the subject of lawsuits and court rulings to avoid further...

    SamuelRSmith said: Depends. If, when you exchange the property, you sign a contract stating that you must use the property in a certain way, then you must stick to that contract. Also, if you buy a license (which most software is sold as), the software is still not your property. You may be able to sell the license, unless it is part of the agreement that you signed...

    UltimateUnknown said:How exactly does one go about selling their digital copy at the moment? Once we redeem a code its gone and its not going to work again. Depends on what game / what service you're talking about. On Steam there's no way to resell (hopefully this court decision or a subsequent one makes them support reselling). When it comes to games without DRM or with a...

    wfz said: Not everyone can pay that larger upfront price, even if they wanted to buy the game and keep it forever. This simple reason is why we have month payment options for expensive devices such as phones and now video game consoles (360).

However, I wouldn't be surprised if the content distributors use this as an excuse to skyrocket the prices of all digital distributed content. Watch this space... Even if prices increase because of this, that's not such a bad thing for gamers, because it would also mean that you could resell your game for a high...

    Fayceless said: if attempts are made to enforce it, it will likely cause developers, especially independent developers, to flee Europe. Fleeing a market that is as big, or bigger (for PC games at least) than the U.S. market? That could only happen if those publishers wanted to go bankrupt or get sued by shareholders by "destroying shareholder value". The vast majority of...

    If direct democracy isn't a good thing, why trust free markets?

    in Politics Discussion on 27 June 2012

    A "free market" still need rules to operate well. If "free market" meant a "no rules" market, free markets could quickly become monopolized through anti-competitive behavior from a behemoth company or a consortium. ...
