Even requesting that of incorrect data is unreasonable. Who is to determine truth? Only the courts can do that.
As far as I understand, Valve says you can install from other sources. Also, not all Steam games have DRM. Quite a few actually don't have any protection at all. Steam is primarily a distribution service. It's the game developers who demand the DRM.
See for yourself. Portal as well. It may be a newer change, but I think It has worked like this for a while.
Believe it or not, Half Life 2 and episodes are DRM free and can be run without Steam. Lots of steam games don't have DRM. Steam is simply a distrobution platform that provides optional DRM that actually works pretty well. On top of all this, Steam's family sharing even lets you share your games with family and friends. The only games that don't work with family sharing are those with additional DRM on top, like Uplay, GFWL, Rockstar, etc. because they require a secondary login and the key can only be registered to one account.
It used to be fairly common to have a couple drinks at lunch.
Still is in many countries outside the US, especially in Europe. My husband works for a major IT company in France and they often have drinks with lunch. On friday they have company provided champagne (and other drinks).
Very true. I wonder how many fake Europeans will be taking advantage of this. I mean if all it takes is sending takedown request and there is no real penalty for false ones... We've seen what happened with the DMCA.
As far as I know, there is a US law that already allows companies to refuse foreign court orders that would conflict with the first amendment. I'm not sure on the specifics of how that would factor in here. Time will tell, I suppose.
I can't imagine Google complying if that's the case. My feeling is they'll restrict viewing for European IPs and that will be compliance enough.
