Buying and selling UV codes

Maybe it's just me but I have noticed this new enterprise popping up in many for sale forums.....I also noticed most of the sellers have low post counts as if the only reason they join is to sell these codes. I know of a couple members at another forum that have been burned by the seller. It may be legit but sounds like piracy to me....just my opinion.

I sell codes all the time and haven't run into any issues. The seller is at more risk than the buyer, in my opinion. PayPal will take the buyer's side in a dispute. The buyer could also tell me the code didn't work when it did and I have no way to prove him/her/it wrong.

If you google for "Trade UV codes", guess what comes up fourth? I'm sure HTF is up there for Buy and Sell too, just not the first page.

UV tried to crack down on buying/selling of UV codes on e-Bay several months after UV started. They said "unbundling" them (meaning selling UV codes without the blu-ray and/or dvd) violated their license/TOS. I guess they gave up though.

There was a panel that discussed this topic last summer with some industry insiders. One of them almost encouraged this practice, because it could help new people become UV account holders, thus growing it's base.

Just today, I bought "remnants" of combo bundles. Depending on movie, I didn't care if I got the BD or DVD. It kills me that I can buy pilfered combo packs so cheap. My "big" score was the BD for Prometheus where the listing said "UV code already redeemed". I got it for $11 w/shipping. The seller complained that it sold so cheap(would have been cheaper for them to have "just bought it digital")...oh well, I care not. Picked up 12 movies for $110(shipping included) that included the "case" and either the BD, DVD or UV was missing. Heck, I probably have 20 UV codes I never redeemed.

The seller complained to YOU that it sold for so cheap? That's hilariously rude of him/her.
