Second Life Items Get eBay Go-Ahead

Traditionally, virtual items are banned from eBay; however, the company said Monday that it would exempt items from the popular Second Life virtual world. The change in policy comes from a reconsideration of what the company considers a "game." An eBay spokesperson says that there is a question as to whether or not Second Life is actually a game, so it will refrain from pulling listings for the time being.

Don't take this as a change in the online auction site's policies. Still banned are gaming items from virtual worlds like World of Warcraft and Everquest. eBay made no additional statements on whether it planned to change its policies regarding those popular massively multiplayer online games.
