I remember something changing those old decisions, but I am probably misremembering the UK decisions. They backtracked some after the first decision but it is still legal to copy things your purchased yourself in the UK.

but you know that has nothing to do with blu rays, right?

though one nugget i did find - thanks to you - is gaben is having difficulty selling the license subscription service model to a court in france:
French high court rules that Steam can’t ban users from reselling digital games
Quote:
Valve’s defence hinged on the argument that Steam sells game licenses – subscriptions – to games, not the games themselves. The court, however, doesn’t see game purchases on Steam as subscriptions, since the owner has access to them indefinitely, and isn’t required to pay recurring payments in order to maintain access.
thats going to an appeals court and if they drop that defense then nothing will come of it. but if it is ruled that they actually sell the game; well, talk about a paradigm shift.

taken from the same article:
Quote:
Following its spat with the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission in 2014, the company instituted a more consumer-friendly refund policy worldwide in 2015, which remains in effect to this day.

An example of how a license can restrict use of software, straight from GeForce drivers:




Obviously it should be, overall, beneficial to almost everyone involved to let people play through GeForce now, but... I can't say I have much sympathy for nVidia, they had this coming for them
you don't have to look at the drivers just read an EULA (that everyone just clicks accept) before playing the game:
END USER LICENSE AGREEMENTS FOR FINAL FANTASY VII REMASTERED (PC)
Quote:
2. Grant of Limited Non-Exclusive Licence
For so long as you are in compliance with the provisions of this EULA, SEL grants you the non-exclusive limited right and licence to:

(a) install one (1) copy of the Software Product into and use it on a single hard drive which is under your custody and control and which meets the specifications referred to in the manual for your own private and domestic use only;

(b) transfer the Software Product from one hard drive to another PROVIDED it is used on only one (1) hard drive at any one time and any hard drive on which it is used is under your custody and control at the time of use;

Remember the golden rule of statistics: A personal sample size of one is a sufficient basis upon which to draw universal conclusions.

If you need help: Upload the computer to Dropbox and provide a link to it so others may download it to examine and give advice for repairs.

Hi,
Yeah I don't really care personally what nvidia does
Only thing I do know is gaming sites will likely see the popularity of the options and do it themselves for the same 5.us a month and cut nvidia totally out and why not.

That's not what I was getting at - I was merely pointing out that nVidia is doing similar shenanigans with their GeForce licenses as what game developers are doing when they're pulling their games out of GeForce now.

You are going to have to close your Steam account.

The GPU maker has revealed that all titles from Warner Bros., Xbox Game Studios, Codemasters and Klei will lose support for the game streaming service on April 24th.
And as with Intel vulnerabilities, don't expect these to be the last ones.

EDIT: On a side note, Oxygen Not Included (or ONI for short) from Klei is a really awesome game.

None of these companies want anyone to get a headstart on streaming. They know it is the future. Just like with digital distribution. Steam took off because it was first, not because it was good.
