'All our discussions about contract law and the EULA have been dealing with civil law (civil law as in the opposite of criminal law, not the opposite of common law). As has been pointed out before, selling gold is a violation of the Terms of Use and End User License Agreement.'

'Selling gold is a crime

But as you might have guessed from the title, gold selling is a crime under a formerly little-known law called the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act.'

'So remember folks, when you buy from gold sellers, you are buying from yet-to-be convicted federal criminals.'

'Violating the terms of use

Footnote 31 of the opinion however, points out that the elements of felony offense are sufficiently known to not be void for vagueness. For a felony conviction, the three elements above must be met, as well as a fourth that "the offense was committed for purposes of commercial advantage or private financial gain." That's right -- violating the terms of use of a website for financial gain is a felony, punishable by five years in prison. Gold farmers are violating computer fraud law just by existing -- this isn't even taking into consideration sellers who acquire their gold through hacks or keyloggers. Because federal prosecutors have enormous discretion about who they prosecute, though, IGE and their ilk aren't exactly quaking in their boots. That would require a prosecutor who cares about such things, and without a dead kid or equally outrageous behavior, that isn't likely to happen.

So remember folks, when you buy from gold sellers, you are buying from yet-to-be convicted federal criminals. Stay tuned until next week, when in honor of U.S. Tax Day (4/15), we'll be looking at how to fill out a U.S. tax form if you are a gold seller.'

Read it at the link, this is a quote, not my words..silly child.
