I just received this email saying that the response "did not respond directly to the request of the petition"

You recently signed the petition “Require videogame publishers to keep games they have sold in a working state”:

The Petitions Committee (the group of MPs who oversee the petitions system) has considered the Government’s response to this petition. They felt the response did not respond directly to the request of the petition. They have therefore asked the Government to provide a revised response.

When the Committee receives a revised response from the Government, we will publish this and share it with you.

Thanks, The Petitions team UK Government and Parliament

This is honestly pretty funny. Even another government agency recognized how bad the response was. That was literally like someone asking how old you are, and you respond by telling them the definition of age.

I hope everyone keeps putting some pressure on legislators about such things.

We have to remind companies that buying is buying.

I wish there was a petition for my country.

There might still be something you can do, go to and you can see what you can do based on your country.

Thanks for the info.

I had already looked at it and nothing applies to my country, especially because I don’t own « the Crew ».

But I just watched this video and it’s revolting :

That's positively surprising, I expected them to leave it at that until petition reaches the second milestone (if that even happens). Let's see if anything new comes out of this.

I guess they want Pirate Party to win.

Pirate Party UK is very real and cool imo.

UK is one big Pirate Party

Aren't game purchases enforceable contracts? i.e. "I give you money. You give me game that works." ? (I'm avoiding words like "good" because that's subjective and it gets into a whole different discussion)
