Edit:"The original box is perfectly legal because it contained a single month of tiem under the single payment for content and time."It's essentially $60 for the first month of time, perfectly legal that way.Everything else is just a charge for content, no time to use it, and thus illegal because I can't use the content and don't actually own it.They have to give time to use the content under the one price, thus legally saying "$60 for a month and the new expansion for free" or "$40 for a month and this new mount for free" to get away with the "service" categorization of WoW, or let us use it offline to justify "ownership".That's the problem.A "service" can't charge for content separate from the service and unusable without the service, but it can charge for time and give content away for free(even if only clever wording).A "product", however, has to be usable without a "service", but can have "server access fee" for online play so long as it is playable offline.If WoW wants to keep the subscription, it needs to allow offline play or stop charging for all content, no matter how small.That is the only way to be legal.Bye......zzzzzzzz
