In the states, thats how the laws are in almost everywhere. I'm sure that EB store could be fined not only with breaking the law they did break (and quite blatently). Like jimvodka said, stolen property remains 'stolen' until the owner gets it back. The problem is that only the theft can really reimburse either party.
It would make sense that EB would be kind enough to sell the items back for what they paid for them. Making her more than what the theft got isn't ethical. Basicly they're profiting from illegal activity.
All these sorts of probs with large companies would be solved if the Better Business Bueru was allowed to have trained ninjas on hand, waiting to strike CEO's of guilty companies. THEN you'd see the CEO's doing their job running a company that's for the customer.
Good thing I don't buy games. Erm, I mean from EB.
Just another reason for backups?
