From the linked article: "They redefined the definition of "gambling" as any and all games which involves the use of both chance and skill to win a prize "The RMAH does not involve chance any more than ebay does. I'm not putting money on the 'chance' that UberWarriorZ is going to get a Mace of the Sorcerer. He already has it and is selling it to the highest bidder. Also, you aren't paying for the chance to 'win a prize' You're bidding on how much you'd be willing to pay to own it. If you don't bid the highest, then you don't pay, unlike a raffle (which was cited as an example in the article) in which you pay whether you win or not.I'm sure Mat will correct me if I'm wrong, but an Auction house satisfies NEITHER of the redefined legal qualifications to be considered gambling.
