For banning reasons. Most games don't allow you to go online with Family Sharing (FS), e.g. CS:GO. This is because you'd be able to circumvent bans effortlessly with FS, at no cost.

As you can see in the link, CS:GO allows you to play offline/LAN content with FS. The only LAN/offline content in JC-MP are locally hosted servers, and it's a lot of effort to implement checks to allow only that when using FS, especially when it's a feature that only developers really use. So it's easier just to ban FS outright.

The game is like £2 on sale anyway, so it's not a big deal.

C'mon the game is like $2.50 when it is on sale. Buy it, Download the MP and send another $2.50 to the devs here for their trouble and time. It will be the best $5 you ever spent.
