    Well, yes, you can, just make a new steam account for every game, then sell the account.

    Fuck the rules lol. No law says you can't give your username and password away. Some forums, like this one, want you to have the item in your hand, but if you have the CD's in your hand, I would think that it circumvents the system.You get a free account with the purchase of the discs.
