GOLD FARMING!

Recommended Posts

breaking a games rule =/= breaking the law?

 

Not directly, but think it this way; I rent you a apartment and you sell it. You break law.

You do not own anything inside runescape, you just have the right to play on your account and everything you bought/gained further on is a extendition to your experience in RuneScape. Therefore selling something in-game for real money is illegal.

It is legal to sell runescape accounts, gold etc.

If you sell accounts you may add that you sell the time played on the account and not the account itself as it belongs to jagex and not yourself. (Only if you sell it over local stores/sites like ebay)

(As of the law in europe, idk about other places)

 

And to be honest I find it brassy to claim it is illegal without even knowing the law situation.

The part "Sell the time you have played on the account" is the loop hole here. My point was that you are not allowed to sell something you do not own. And since by European laws and common sense time is something you can charge people for.
