Australias consumer watchdog Friday said it was taking online US video games giant Valve to court for allegedly making false or misleading representations and refusing to offer refunds. The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission said Valve Corporation, which operates digital video games distribution platform Steam for more than 65 million customers worldwide, allegedly breached local consumer law. Valve may be an American-based company with no physical presence in Australia, but it is carrying on business in Australia by selling to Australian consumers, who are protected by the Australian consumer law, the ACCC said in a statement.
