Florida Attorney General Subpoena against IGE

Wired informs the Florida Attorney General’s Office of Economic Crimes has issued a class action subpoena to gold-seller IGE and Affinity Media as part of an investigation under the Deceptive and Unfair Trade Practices Act. Hopefully, this time they get nerfed in real-life too. (read more)

The subpoena seeks financial and sales information, the identity of specific World of Warcraft accounts owned or controlled by IGE, the identity of World of Warcraft accounts that IGE has power leveled, and the IP addresses IGE used to log into World of Warcraft to distribute products sold by IGE. The subpoena also seeks documents which show all websites owned or controlled by IGE or its affiliates at any time.—quote by Massively.
