VALVe's Cyber Cafe Program Info

A Forum Thread for GameBanana

Thanks to Vexware from our forums for sending me an updated info on VALVe's Cyber Cafe Program. As you can read below it will coast 10 bucks a month for each PC that has STEAM installed, the agreement also states that you have to have STEAM installed on at least 10 PCs in your cafe![quote2>Valve's cyber café program also protects members against banned or stolen product keys. We understand that it is sometimes difficult to prevent users from misusing your computers or gaining access to the registry and taking the product keys. To help combat this problem, cafés in the program can contact Valve to have their systems "un-banned" and/or to receive a new set of product keys. Old product keys are quickly turned off in order to prevent unauthorized use. When reviewing the attached agreement you will see the program costs US$10 per month per computer. Remember, this licensing fee entitles you to fully licensed versions of products in the cyber café program and you do not have to purchase the underlying products at retail. With the purchase of one-year licenses café owners will receive a 10% discount lowering the cost per computer to US$108 per year.[/quote2>10% discount, nice one, huh? Good thing you get new keys if someone steals them, I wonder why VALVe doesn't store them somewhere else than in the registry.

    Can't you create a new account for each CD key you have collected?

    It may not be so long after all before VALVe passes on to the product activation method for its games :(. It would avoid stolen registry keys, but it would be frustrating for several obvious reasons, such as having to phone if not having the Internet...
