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.

Solution
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.
I tried to complain about the hosting. The lawyer probably did not play cs 1.6. - alda_Colli commented on March 19th 20 at 09:00
@alda_Colli, simply neither You nor the lawyer has the understanding of the topic of discussion.
I've seen dozens of hosting sites that open and close. Few of them continue to work until now. And no one asked at the start of such questions. Because in the context of the game hosting this is generally not the main issue. - kenyon commented on March 19th 20 at 09:03
@kenyon, I didn't asked this question, I just did a build server, downloaded the build server, and then I was told that it is not legal. I can even give example hosting gaming servers myarena.ru. There is not only cs 1.6. Thanks for a clear answer. - alda_Colli commented on March 19th 20 at 09:06
@kenyon, by the way, what is the main question and sub-questions.?? - alda_Colli commented on March 19th 20 at 09:09
@kenyon, I'm curious, write for like. - alda_Colli commented on March 19th 20 at 09:12
@alda_Colli, you have such interesting questions - ibrahim16 commented on March 19th 20 at 09:15
@alda_Colli, I don't need the mark.
What can You offer to people such that they come to You.
Low price? - And donating what You will achieve low prices?
High quality? - The quality of what?
What niche You want to occupy among hosting game servers? In Russia, attacks on game servers, even ddos-guard does not help, although they claim that they know how to defend. Really can only protect a couple of game hosting.
And what You can? - kenyon commented on March 19th 20 at 09:18
The quality of protection and privacy. I niche do not count. I just want the hosting. I'm not a competitor Hottinger, which 80 % of the market.
I have a TK 45 points of information security. + pentest. Hosting will be certified, and it has already said a lot. - alda_Colli commented on March 19th 20 at 09:21
@kenyon, I, of course, not a data center to fight off DDoS attacks. - alda_Colli commented on March 19th 20 at 09:24

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.
