Well, Valve is being sued by French consumer group UFC-Que Choisir, with the consumer group demanding the ability to resell Steam games.

The group claims that Valve's policy violates the European Union's right to resell legally purchased software, and as proof, the UFC-Que Choisir said that a 2012 Oracle case saw a judge ruling that there was no difference between reselling disc-based copies of software, and their downloaded equivalents.

 

The French consumer group also doesn't agree with Valve's self-given right to reuse user-made Steam content, arguing that the company should refund any leftover credit if you close your Steam account.
