Does Valve money for the commercial use of game servers cs 1.6 on my paid hosting?
Want to open your hosting. The lawyer told me that the use of games without permission of its developers, face a fine. Whether it refers to iravum servers. I watched a lot of videos about how to create a server on hosting for commercial gain. And they are not punished.
Are you sure the lawyer understand You correctly? Have you tried to complain to Valve for hosting providers that provide servers as legal. face?
It is understood that there is a game, and there are add-ons for it. Dedicated server games are a Supplement. And hosting is a resource where you can purchase a server with certain parameters, that will run the Supplement Dedicated server. The same as to rent a VDS and the client it will put the game server.
Valve can be against, for example, install DPROTO on server CS 1.6. Because it gives you the opportunity to join the server to the pirates. But even for this hoster is not responsible.

So if you seriously come to the question it is necessary most to Valve to ask.
If you are going to use the code cs, there is probably somewhere in the code is license - should start with reading it and showing it to a lawyer.
