As part of the Directive 97/7/EC: "Whereas the free movement of goods and services affects not only the business sector but also private individuals; whereas it means that consumers should be able to have access to the goods and services of another Member State on the same terms as the population of that State;", we have the same right to buy and have access to all goods, merchandise and services as any of citizens of any EU country. Unfortunately, the Steam Store effectively takes that right away from us.

      This 'electronic border' within the EU, enforced by the Steam Store is preventing us to enjoy our free market.

      If everyone were doing what they do, we would be stuck buying goods/services in our own country. This is not what I believe the EU should let happen; as I am not aware the EU is promoting protectionism.

      It has been 4 years now, almost 10,000 posts and around 670 pages of wondering and complaining on the Steam Forums (http://tinyurl.com/unsteam), and nothing has really changed. This volume must be the equivalent of the The Lord of the Ring book and not a single answer has been provided by Steam.

      I want to believe in this petition. Please share, and merry Xmas.

      Steam Store is creating like an electronic border within the EU countries.

      It is not right as we have the right to access goods from any EU country. It has been now 4 years that this is going on.

      If everyone were doing this, we would be stuck buying stuff in our own country. As far as I know EU doesn't enforce protectionism, or else there would be no point anymore in having an EU market.

      I believe in the EU. Please do something.
