Yep, eBay’s Out Of The MMO Business

And just to make this an RMT hat trick day today, Zonk at Slashdot has gotten confirmation from eBay that they are in fact as policy delisting all auctions for virtual property.

Mr. Hani Durzy, speaking for eBay, explained that the decision to pull these items was due to the ‘legal complexities’ surrounding virtual property. “For the overall health of the marketplace” the company felt that the proper course of action, after considerable contemplation, was to ban the sale of these items outright. While he couldn’t give me a specific date when the delistings began, he estimated that they’ve been coming down for about a month or so.
