Virtual property banned from eBay

No primary category set

Gamers, beware: eBay is now delisting all auctions for ‘virtual artifacts’ from the site. This includes currency, items, and accounts/characters used in MMORPGs, as well as Neopoints used in Neopets.

This isn’t a new policy by eBay: such items are very likely to fall foul of the rules on digitally delivered goods, particularly as ownership of such items is questionable at best. “For the overall health of the marketplace”, said an eBay spokesman, it was felt best to ban such items altogether, though once more, this policy has not been highlighted by any announcement from the company.
