      No, it's just a corporate bluff thing. Even in the US there are some areas which uphold laws that state digital assets are transferable through inheritance and supercede whatever terms of service for use of those assets might state. (Notably the District of Columbia is one of such cases.)

      In most countries obeying Civil Law (aka Roman Law) rather than Common Law, like the US and UK do - the laws wrt inheritance already include software licenses by the fact that software is treated as a good, the license is treated as ancillary and subservient to that good, and the laws regarding inheritance of goods cannot be limited by contract.

            When Nintendo shuts down the Switch store like they did the Wii, Wii U, 3DS, I will still have ROMS of every worthwhile switch game and you will be locked out of anything that isn't fully on cartridge or requires an update.

    You're defacto allowed to transfer accounts on death, Valve saying otherwise doesn't matter until they cook up some scheme to detect user death.

      They could request proof of life when the account reaches a reasonably high age. The lowest age you can sign up for Steam is 13 (at least per the TOS,) so if an account is like 60 years old, which then approaches the average life span in the US at 73 years, they could require proof of life to continue using it. Insurance companies have been doing this shit for ages.

      I doubt they'd bother, but it's not infeasible.

    Man, this is still the funniest case of 'I don't know how awful legal proceedings are' ever. Legal ownership is still geared towards physical reality, and it gets in such a shit show when you get into what is the digital identity.
    Ownership of digital identities is literally whoever owns it. If someone knows the username and password, they own that account. If someone learns that account and uses it or changes the password, that's not a crime. Digital identity has no set basis in law in the US.

      In California, if I recall correctly, all porn sites require ID checks now and various politicians keep talking about forcing ither platforms to apply the same, including Steam because hurr durr it have 18+ games and MUH CHILDREN could see them.

        I'm not sure what you're thinking of, but I'm in CA and I just went on a porn site the other day. I'm not a coomer but I was curious about something so I looked it up on …what was it. Pornhub I think. No ID check required or anything.

      What this means for Valve is that they can't legally provide anyone with your account. If someone asks for your account credentials for any reason, including the death of the owner, they will not give the account info for the purposes of getting into the account. That's it. They're not stopping the user from providing their OWN info to someone else, they just do not provide that info themselves. It's incredibly easy to see why when you consider just how much that kind of system would be abused if it existed. This is basically how all digital accounts are handled legally, leaving it up to the end user to protect and delegate their own account creditials. If someone dies and doesn't give anyone their passwords, those accounts are forfeit.

    Imagine presenting this as negative. In order to make them transferrable on death, Steam would need all your paperwork and government IDs. Why do you want everyone to dox themselves to Steam? You can transfer your steam account just fine. Give your credentials for your account and/or email to someone else. That's it.

    Not allowing a dude to give his Steam account to his kid is the ultimate cringe, but in practice, this is probably not enforceable. Firstly, why and how would they ever know? Secondly, why would they care? Valve isn't paying employees to cross-reference bits of personal information in Steam profiles with obituaries from around the world. They just have to say accounts are non-transferable because that's the official policy, and it's the official policy because they don't want to legitimize buying Steam accounts which are usually stolen.

    That's all this is. Nothing is stopping you from manually giving someone your account. This only matters if someone dies unexpectedly. Even then if someone did die unexpectedly, there's still workarounds since Google will give immediate family gmail access on death.

    As soon as someone dies of old age the case against this will make it illegal. Common law already doesn't support Valve's policy. If this is still an issue when I die 50+ years from now I'll let part of my assets go into paying for a trial to break this.
