Just wanted to post a little information that seems to be forgotten lately. You don't own anything in game. You don't own your characters, your items, or anything. You signed a binding legal contract agreeing to this. This is not my opinion. This is is not EA's opinion. This is the opinion of the 7th Circuit Court (ProCD v Zeidenberg) reinforced by the 8th Circuit Court (Blizzard v Jung et al; also known as blizzard v bnetd). Please review: http://www.uo.com/agreement.html Specificially 5. Rights and Responsibilities. "c) Rights. You acknowledge and agree that all characters created, and items acquired and developed as a result of game play are part of the Software and Service and are the sole property of EA.com." This section later goes on to state that even things you create in game EA may do what ever it wants with. This is a game. This is not the real world. You own nothing. You have no rights. If the game rules allow it then there's no foul. Please remember this and act accordingly as you enjoy this wonderful game.
