I agree with you that the sale of a used game is a lost sale to the publisher, but it isn't lost due to some inequity by the seller of the used game. It is the game publisher's own fault that it lost the sale because its asking price for a new copy of the game was too high to the buyer of the used copy. This is simply capitalism at work. If publishers don't try to compete for this business by lowering their prices to what potential these customers are willing to pay, then they will continue to miss out on these sales and deservedly so.
That is fine. We are in agreement then.

You are spectacularly missing my point. My point is that publishers should care less about piracy where no one gets paid, and more about used game sales.
You are spectacularly missing my rebuttal of your point which is that neither you nor publishers should care about used game sales because they don't have a legitimate complaint about them.
I think that piracy where no money changes hands doesn't equate to a lost sale, but sale of a used game does.

I think selling and buying used games is worse than piracy where no money changes hands. When you buy and sell used games, the makers and publishers of the games don't get a dime, but someone else does thus profiting on someone else's labor.
We need to burn down all the libraries too because that is the government spending taxpayer money to harm the publishing industry by sharing books, newspapers, and magazines, and letting people read them without buying them.

Remember whenever you play a video game without paying for it, the child of a game developer or publisher starves to death.

You are spectacularly missing my point. My point is that publishers should care less about piracy where no one gets paid, and more about used game sales.

When you pirate a game without any money change, nobody gets any money.

That challenge was pretty dope. The game player could run and gun while the soldier is more disciplined and did it "right".

Yeah, but if you want to use the server browser, Gamespy has to have their master servers up too.
