To me that is the equivalent of going to jail.
I doubt they're gonna ban you for that. They did the mistake and you didn't kinda do anything wrong, except that you didn't report about the situation. They probably remove Borderlands from your account, but really, I don't think they will disable your account although I'm sure they can if you they want. Your best bet is to contact steam support and hope they give you free Borderlands for helping them with the problem if the matter bothers you.

umm, your freind might of brought borderlands on steam thinking it was his account you never know.. it's impossible for a retail or pirated copy to install itself into steam, and the disk and 'pirated copies' arent very different.

Strange thing is, retail Borderlands has no CD key, nor did it have any protection for multiplayer.

The only thing I can think of to explain this is that the "acquired" version your friend had on his system modified some Steam files, which in turn sent false data back to the Steam Servers.

There used to be a "game unlock" hack thing for Steam which would basically send false purchase data back to the Steam Servers, thus "unlocking" game(s) on said account for free.

If this is the case, and Steam find out - You will get your account disabled!

Borderlands owners get access to Duke Nukem Forever demo before anyone else, because the same studio is developing Duke Nukem Forever. That's why it says "Duke Nukem Forever First Access." That's very strange the game just appeared like that though.

That was patched long ago. I think Steam detected Borderlands on his friends computer and registered it as game data.

But report it ASAP, because if you don't and they found out, like InsaneMatt said, you might lose your Steam account.

Go ahead and click "***'s account" in the top right corner of Steam and tell us if Borderlands appears on the list, and if so, the acquisition method also.
