Items marked "not for resale" rules change proposal
At the request of ASB i propose a change to the FS/FT guidelines which apparently prohibit items marked not for resale. (Thumbs up ASB)
As there is no reason or legal reason for this i propose that it be removed from the guidelines. If an item is owned by an individual, they own the item and have the rights to do as they wish with it (within legal bounds and copyright law)
Providing they do not breach other rules (there is a retail value etc) there is no reason they cannot be allowed, and also based on the current rules it also bans the sale of a large majority of DVDs and Games which are also adorned with "not for resale".
along the same lines this also puts several of the mods who have sold games on fs/ft in breach of the FS/FT rules themselves.
PROPOSED RULE CHANGE:
The issue lies within the prohibited items list:
*Items without an rrp, e.g. games marked as promo only or split bundles where no price comparison is valid.
This should be changed to:
*Items without an RRP or equivalent RRP, e.g a promotional items from a company not available for purchase. Items marked promotional or not for resale are permitted as long as they are identical to the retail counterpart aside from the packaging or text on the item.
