To me the big issue is not that people are selling their keys, its that people are able to sell used keys and, unfortunately, people will get excited or careless and buy one. There is a loophole in Ebay ToS that allows the sale of used codes, empty boxes and the like provided that the seller states in the post that the item is in fact used. as long as this text is in the post and readable the post is legitimate. Sure, most people will be careful and read carefully but there are the few who don't read correctly and pay $500 for a worthless piece of plastic.By all means if you do not intend to help in the testing go ahead and sell your code, or give it to someone who does. But if you are looking to buy a code, tread very carefully.

And who's fault is it if they buy a used code? If (and only if) the seller mentions that the key is used in the auction, and someone STILL buys it, it is not the sellers fault. It is not eBays fault. It isn't Blizzards fault. It is ONLY the buyers fault.
