    When I was at work today I was thinking that maybe Gamestop is actually illegaL. They are purchasing used games from everyone, then selling them even though they are not copyright of Gamestop. If they are illegal, how come game companys haven't taked any legal action against them?

    Is that illegal? Theres lots of places that sell used games. If its illegal then they probably have a license to sell copywrited games.

    If its a "COPY" yes... if its not a copy.. then NO... because youre actually selling it like youre selling it at an Auction... so you pay your sellers fee... thats kinda the same as a License

    Remember when the PS3 was still in the planning stages, $ony patented a way to put a code on a disk to lock it into just one PS3 system, meaning it could never be used on a different PS3? They were smart enough to shelve the idea, but they still have that in their back pocket.

    But sooner or later it'd be cracked cause if the disk remembers the info on the system it was used at, there is a way to exact it, create a mod that automatically reads the info and copy it exactly.

    Yaaaaaaaarrrrrrrrrrrrrrr
