If you do even precursory research into the subject you will find two things. One, China has banned RMT for years, they have no intention of really stopping the low level effects of it. Two, this new law was to deal with people that were laundering very large sums of money through RMT businesses.No offense but before you report on stories dealing with the real world, it would be a good idea to do the background research that the real world usually engages in before reporting on their stories. It's just good practice.RE: RMT. No matter ones place in the world or financial situation committing a crime is committing a crime. RMT isn't about that little kid in a basement working all night playing WoW to feed their family. It's about big time collusion, fraud, theft and law-breaking. It's time the "casual" gaming media gets behind the people they claim to report to instead of romanticizing RMT and perpetuating this illusion of the "poor but hardworking Chinese Gold farmer". A notion which is probably even more Orientalist and velvet-gloved racist than any of the direct criticism of RMT.
