Diablo III Dropping RMT in Korea?

A post on the Korea Times indicates Diablo III is now cleared for sale in South Korea, seemingly at the expense of the real-money auction house that was holding up the game's approval. A spokesperson for the ratings board says: "The feature involving for-cash trades between users was not included in the presentation to the rating committee, and therefore it was not subjected to any scrutiny." They also add that the game could once again come under scrutiny if cash transactions were enabled by a post-release patch. Thanks PC Gamer.

Interesting that they would buckle there but not elsewhere. I'd love to have been a fly on the way during D3s development and controversial decisions being made. Surely not everyone there is fond of the direction the final produce appears to have taken.
Don't recall any other countries complaining. It's too damn bad, since afaik this is money scam being setup by blizzard. The reason they are getting away with it, is since most nations (except Korea, apparently) seem to have no idea what Blizzard is actually up to.

Wish I knew more about international law but if they setup the main sever in say the Caymen Islands, they will avoid paying taxes to each the countries.
