Im not in the USA im in Europe. Been here for years too :-)

Selling digital copies is not something I am terrifically bothered about. Giving my digital copies to my friends is a different matter though.

Yeah, I don't mind not being able to resell my games but I'd like the ability to gift away old copies after a period of time or something. I have a shit load of stuff in my Steam library that I will never, ever play and I'd rather just give them to someone else. If that means someone has the ability to resell an old game on ebay for $5 whoop de doo, the industry can tolerate it.

It always strikes me as amusing though that the gaming industry views itself as this special market case. They seem to think they should have all of these separate regulations and exemptions from traditional consumer protection law that the other media industries don't.
