Steam's Illegal Monopoly Explained

Valve, the owner of Steam, forces game developers into contracts that prevent them from charging a cheaper price for their games elsewhere, and limit how many games they can sell as Steam keys on other platforms. This prevents price competition, raising prices for consumers like you. Because of Steam's market dominance, that conduct is also illegal. If you are a Steam user, you may be entitled to hundreds or thousands in compensation. If you want to get started on your claim, you can do so here.
