In another assertive move by Blizzard Entertainment to crack down on World of Warcraft gold and items vendors, PayPal has agreed to prohibit the use of its accounts for buying and selling these virtual goods. Blizzard complained to PayPal using an "Intellectual Properties violation" which PayPal has chosen to honor. According to Curse, "PayPal has honored these complaints, and has sent notices to all affected parties stating that they must stop providing these "services" on their website(s). If they refuse, they can no longer use PayPal as a payment option."

ou were reported to PayPal as an Intellectual Properties violation by Blizzard Entertainment Inc. for the sale of World of Warcraft Merchandise.

If you feel your sales do not infringe upon the intellectual property rights of the Reporting Party, please complette the attached Objection to Infringement Report by January 21, 2011.
