I see this issue at heart. I kind of think Blizzard should bend their rules to an extent here. If my cousin never let me play under his account I would never have been a customer of Blizzard. Several people who came after Burning Crusade, like myself I asked about this said a friend, coworker or family member let them create a character and try out the game. I liked the game, so I went out and bought my own when I got back home, as I stayed with my cousin for a week. The percentage of people who came after Burning Crusade must be a good number. I bet thousands if not millions came after Burning Cruade; what if several were like me played on a friend's account first? If Blizzard really stepped hard down on it how would it effect future customers?

Well, they have a trial version for this exact reason.But to be honest, I really doubt that creating a new toon on another one's account for a couple of play-hours will be causing any such issues. ;-)
