Look at it this way.......The ONLY thing we, as Ganz's customers, truly own is the plushies themselves (and the other tangible items....purses, lipglosses, figurines, etc). Everything else that is "virtual" is completely and 100% Ganz's property....and they are simply trying to protect it. When we buy a plush with a code (or another webkinz product with a code) we are not "buying" a webkinz account......We are simply paying for access to their webkinz world site for 1 year. Everything on your virtual account will ALWAYS, no matter what, be theirs. We can play with it and up-keep it and do all the activities as much as we want, but their agreement only means that we cannot "sell" the account because it is not OURS to sell in the first place....which makes it illegal. This also covers the ebay thing.....we cannot "sell" the virtual items either.....again, because they are not ours to sell, they are wholly Ganz property.
Does that make it a little clearer? I know......It still gets very confusing to me too. They truly could've done a much better job writing that user agreement.....especially seeing that it all started out as a children's website!!
