I believe you call them and then ship it back to them.

Someone mentioned the 800lb gorilla earlier, but if you ask me, this is a 950lb gorilla right here. All EULA's I've read have a line in it about returning the software for a full refund if you don't wish to be bound by the terms of it, but no retailer I know of will accept such software for a refund. Nasty catch-22 if you ask me.

I believe it was stated in the licence v. purchase article that the return clause says that the game can be returned directly to Blizzard, eliminating said catch 22.

In Australia (which has real consumer protection laws, unlike certain other countries) you can return opened MMO's back to the retailer and they have to give you a refund (I can't remember off the top of my head whether this is one month or six months from purchase). I returned a boxed copy of WAR because someone had already used the activation code in it.This is why I don't use STEAM because they will only give you one refund ever (which is a complete rip as they have the ability to deactivate the content and they don't lose money from a now useless box).
