Expressing concern about “legal complexity”, eBay is bouncing auctions of virtual items from World of Warcraft and other MMORPGs in the US and UK. This will probably not make much difference since a) Blizzard already says you’re not allowed to sell in-game stuff for real-world money and b) there are other ways of moving the stuff around that don’t involve eBay, but, it’s always fascinating to see corporate types have to try to fathom the addicted-gamer mind.
