    Default apposed to white label sales

    Am I the only one apposed to this so called "(white label) review edition " sales ?
    These games are given free and for review/ promo only .. I also get these from SK but will not sell them...I think this is not on.
    Is this even legal?

    Do the promo white label discs have any disclaimer on them stating 'Not for Resale'? or anything worded to imply it is illegal to sell them? If so, then it's not legal at all to resell them. Even if you don't sell it and ditribute it around the forum I think it's still not legal. For every member that gets the game, plays it and passes it on, The developers are cheated out of a sale.

    These are there for pure review... that is my view.
    But seems so far most are apposed to my view . This is just like piracy.. as Maxim stated " The developers are cheated out of a sale "
    I get some every now and them from SK for review. And will only use them for that purpose.
    Again guys this is my view....

    I vote no.

    Question: What is suppose to happen to these white label copies after a review/promotion?

    Those who get their games for review then they should not sell them

    Those whowin thier in competition should be allowed to sell them

    The poll should be do you oppose white label sales, coz I personally dont support it and dont appose it, People who get these copies can do what they want with it

    You got it for a review, give it to someone else to review

    i think the covers and book make a huge difference... like when you dont know how to play the game, and it doesnt have a tutorial. but yeah... i think its uncool, and i would feel kinda ripped off just getting a disk!
