I honestly don't think there's really any way that they could prevent it honestly. If they didn't allow you to transfer funds between bank accounts then it would absolutely cripple the economy. There would be no such thing as meeting up with a pirate who just lifted a Starfarer full of expensive cargo and wants to sell it cheaper on the black market. If it were me, the only way that I could see being able to prevent people from renting out their ships for UEC would be to invalidate the insurance plan on the ship when the owner is not on board. Your friends would still be able to pilot your ship if you want to man the turrets or launch in the P52, but if you just trust someone to take one of your ships on a joyride your insurance wouldn't cover a second non-approved pilot. Maybe they would have to pick up a "second pilot" policy of their own on your ship that requires your approval stating that any damages occurred to your ship the second party will be liable for and that your primary insurance cannot be billed. But who knows honestly. This is something that we probably won't find out for a bit of time still. A lot of these details are constantly changing, but I put my full faith in the dev team to make the right choices to make the game the best they possibly can.
