We've discussed here many times stories of people selling online gaming characters from games like EverQuest on eBay. The companies that make those games, for the most part, aren't happy. Recently, the folks behind "Dark Age of Camelot" have forced eBay to shut down auctions run by a group called CamelotExchange. Those guys are now suing the game publisher saying that it is an unfair business practice - especially since the publisher itself sells goods on eBay. They might have a point. I'm not sure why all these gaming companies are so against the trade of their characters on eBay. It's likely to get more people playing if they think they can make some money off of it.
