I'm curious why you say this. What legal principles does this violate? I
mean, Everquest and UO, for instance, sell the characters that people use.
We sell in-game items. I don't see a court worrying about the 'role'
mechanism though. By this I mean that an in-game item is just a database
entry, and I don't see the courts saying 'No, you may not sell this
database entry, over which no one has any claim but you."
