The ACCC has brought Federal Court proceedings against Valve Corporation (Valve), a US-based software company, alleging that it made false or misleading representations regarding the application of the consumer guarantees under the ACL.  Although Valve has no physical presence in Australia, the ACCC emphasised that Valve is carrying on a business in Australia by selling games to Australian consumers through the ‘Steam’ distribution platform and, to that extent, the ACL applies to Valve’s activities.
