Yes, you can share your games with your family. Steam recently introduced Family Sharing, a system where a user can share his library with the rest of the family and others who use the same computer. You simply need to enable Family Sharing on the computer you want to use: Log in with the account you want to play with Log in with the account that owns the ...

Yes. From the TOS: You agree that you will not, under any circumstances: A. use cheats, automation software (bots), hacks, mods or any other unauthorized third-party software designed to modify the World of Warcraft experience;

You can take a look at the demo version of Minecraft. Yes, you will need one username for each player. Also, take a look at MinecraftEdu They offer Minecraft to schools for 50% off the retail price.

It actually happened to me. There was the full Commandos collection in Steam sales and I couldn't get it because it is not available in Germany (I guess why :/). I told a (good) friend and he gifted it to me out of the blue. The games are in my library and I can download them. I guess if you don't abuse this it should be ok, but I cannot guarantee it as ...

Yes, it is against the Steam Subscriber Agreement. It is against Steam Subscriber Agreement which you agreed by creating a steam account, buying a game or buying/selling something from/on the Steam Community Market. You may not use Cheats, automation software (bots), mods, hacks, or any other unauthorized third-party software, to modify or automate any ...

Disclaimer: I am not a lawyer. If in doubt, always consult a real lawyer. "The internet told me so" does not hold in court. As far as I know, Niantic has not officially published the game on any platform except for the official Google Play store and Apple Appstore. Rights in App Subject to your compliance with these Terms, Niantic grants you a ...

Update As my understanding, if you use SuperMarioMaker2 to create a course but didn't publish it, you should still have right on your course. But I am not a lawyer, my understanding could be wrong... I didn't find the EULA either. However, I remember what Nintendo says at game beginning : (translate from Chinese by my own) Nintendo may take those course ...

I couldn't find any mention of the Mac App Store version in the CS2015 FAQ, which only states this about playing on Macs: Apple-PCs: If you do not yet have a Steam account, you can set one up for free. You will need to download a Steam client to set up an account. The Steam client is available free of charge at the following website: ...

Update additional to Puce's answer. After hours of research, here is 'theoretical way' to determine state of your target game. TL;DR: Use steamdb.info to confirm package's information, if AllowCrossRegionTradingAndGifting not set to No, your friend might be able to gift that game for you. (Provided that app information does not restrict downloading or ...

So, to be clear, crossing either threshold is not what makes your income via the steam community market taxable. That is something that will vary wildly from jurisdiction to jurisdiction, and across a variety of financial circumstances. You should know, however, that in many cases, income from the Steam community market is taxable well before you have ...

Pokemon Showdown uses images, sprites, music and other Intellectual Property (IP) of Gamefreak, Nintendo & The Pokemon Company. It is most likely breaching some of Nintendo's copyright. Note that Showdown and other sites don't need to be making money in order to be infringing. Copyright infringement occurs regardless of whether there is profit being ...

Whilst the other answers deal primarily with re-releases or legal sites to play ROMs of games, I thought I'd share an option that has been an excellent addition to my living room: The RetroN 5! The RetroN 5 plays the original game cartridges for: NES Famicom SNES Super Famicom Mega Drive Genesis Game Boy Game Boy Color Game Boy Advance Master System (via ...

Earthbound is now available for Virtual Console on the Wii U and the New 3DS, in the Nintendo eShop. It is also available in Europe, so if you own a Wii U or New 2DS/3DS, purchase it through there.

From the research I have seen, there should be no problem bringing over a disc with a game on it to another country (in your case, India). There is, however, some rule that restricts people to only bringing one piece of hardware over at a time (computer, console, etc.) but it shouldn't affect you.

The second set are the terms and conditions to the Pokemon.com site, unrelated to the game, while the first are the terms and conditions to the Pokemon GO mobile game. So it seems that the terms of Service that you should be following are the first set. There are ways to circumvent the play-store issue, and as far as I'm aware, I don't think anyone has had ...

To put it simply, it isn't. There are a very, very few games first published in the US prior to 1977 without a copyright notice, or first published in the US prior to 1989 with neither notice nor copyright registration. Some of those early games are things like Spacewar for the PDP-1 or Star Trek for the Sigma 7. For the most part, games published in the ...

Minecraft Demo can be used to host LAN, but it won't connect to a LAN server other than itself. So the only way to play Minecraft multiplayer without a paid account is to play the classic mode. It is, however, very old and only includes creative mode and limited maps. For the actual up-to-date Minecraft, you need an account for each user. There seem to be ...

No you cannot transfer your PS4 games to XBox One. They are completely different consoles and games on both consoles are not compatible even if they are digital.

When it comes to software, especially very small snippets, copyright (for the creator of the generator) might not even apply. There's only so many ways of writing down the same command. Sometimes even just one. Anything that contains less than 140 or so bits of expression is simply too short to be eligible (due to the birthday paradox, there's a very good ...

Yes, you can do videos and nobody will close your channel. But, if you're asking if you can make videos and monetize them via youtube, this might be kinda different. If you're going to take that road, I suggest you to open a ticket to Warframe support, so you can have official info and a written proof, if the need arises.

Steam officially supports LAN game streaming, and you can extend your LAN by managing to get some sort of VPN system to work. IANAL, but streaming your video gameplay through a VPN is not conceptually different from streaming it through Twitch -- you're taking the video feed, which is technically a derivative work of the copyrighted videogame, routing it ...

The current regular version of Minecraft intends to have one license/account per player, but no license is needed for the server. Therefore, the only expense to make this happen, beyond server hardware, is Minecraft accounts for any player who does not already have one.
