Its pretty simple no rights at all, Blizzard make it real clear you do all toons and virtual goods are belong to them. You do not have any claims what so ever...

Its the only way to stop the account sales and so on. I wish that they put there feeds down and shut down all that sites that buy/sale accounts.

No right, plain and simple.
Blizzard has it right. You're paying for a service, that is all.
They'll do anything for the most part to keep you enjoying the game and nothing happens to your stuff, but it's not yours literally.

I actually think this is a fairly simple concept to figure out... but those fatcats in washington and that mainstream media may muck up the proper outcome...

A) Each virtual world has a ToS that declares if the company is giving their users ownership rights. IE: If you make a battlesword in Second Life, its yours in all aspects. In World of Warcraft, that sword is owned by Blizzard.

B) Case by case basis.... (Considering that ToS' are legal and legit working FOR the protection of BOTH the company and the user) Lets let each court case decide.

C) People that want "rights" usually aren't giving enough credit to the platform they're using. Example: Linden Lab has granted us IP rights, their choice. That doesn't mean they aren't helping to facilitate every single creation made in SL.

Everyone seeks credit, and rights, and ownership....
Giving these things away to people makes the world such a happier place, in fact, every one reading this.. try it some time.... instead of trying to claim, possess, own.... why not give that to someone else. It'll make ya feel happy.



PS.... SLART wha wha yeah thats right i went there beotch

my problem with all this is simple time now use too most people spent what 40 hours a week working (not sure if that true anymore).

which add's up to 160 hour's a month

so how many hours a week does it take to get say one raid piece 1 hour or is it more like 40 hours.

so if i spent 160 hours basicly working for the mmo for free i guess i would be a little upset if my item i worked 160 hours for. somthing happen too it

If you do not agree with the ToS do not play the game. If you put many hours into a game its your choose you known that you never can own anything.
