Also, aside from violating the ToS, I doubt there any actual laws were broken by gold sellers. Now, the account hackings are illegal, but it would be insanely difficult to track down who did the hacking and linking the gold sellers to the actual hackers.
Getting rid of their account for violating the ToS is probably the most Blizzard can do in most cases.

Today MMORPGs, tomorrow, everything else!
The WOW clones they are playing in China is amusing though, like Giant (Ju Ren in chinese): Chinese time traveler go back in time to the 1800s to massacre whities with modern technolgy (which we all know the Chinese "developed" themselves）to change the course of history, ensuring the dominance of the Chinese race.

I for one see Blizzard's issue with getting WOTLK released in China as a sign that they won't sell their soul to do business with devils.
