Valve To Pay $3 Million To Settle Lawsuit

Valve To Pay $3 Million To Settle Lawsuit

Early this year in March, the Australian Federal Court found Valve, an online distributor of games guilty for several breaches of the Australian Consumer Law in a case that was filed in 2014 by the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC). This is regards to Valve's refund policy refusing any refund on its games. The reasoning behind the lawsuit was that according to ACCC, Valve had misleading interpretations relating to the company's refunds or lack thereof. And with the latest news, Valve could be forced to pay up to $3 million for its grievances.
