Steam Family Sharing allows close friends and family members to play one another's games while earning their own Steam achievements and saving their own game progress to the Steam cloud. It's all enabled by authorizing a shared computer.

Sounds neat, but it does look convoluted and complex. I have a simpler system, which is quite revolutionary. It's called physical copies and I can just give them to friends. It's magic.

Do other countries have similar laws?

I think most countries have similar fair-use laws. Just imagine how absurd it would be if you couldn't "use" your spouse's book, your dads newspaper or your brothers DVD.
