Internet auction giant eBay has officially stopped allowing auctions of virtual property. This means that people hoping to sell currency or characters in an online game will have to look somewhere else. This is actually simply the enforcement of a policy that's been around since eBay's inception.
The seller must be the owner of the underlying intellectual property, or authorized to distribute it by the intellectual property owner.As an example of this policy in action, World of Warcraft currency is technically Blizzard's, so you cannot sell it on eBay.Source: 1Up
