While this applies to all sections of the Marketplace, this seems to increasingly be a problem in the Freebie section in particular.

Please take note of this rule:

The following types of software sales are prohibited:

* Sale of OEM software unless it's in the original, factory sealed package AND accompanied by a significant piece of hardware (defined as optical drive or larger) EXCEPT open OEM versions of Windows may be sold with the motherboard the OEM license is tied to
* Sale of online accounts unless sellers can demonstrate that the EULA does not prohibit sales
* Sale of software keys not accompanied by media and/or documentation
* OEM software like promotional games that come with a video card, or similar OEM with "Not for Resale"
* OEM software MUST be pictured and clearly readable to display whether the "Not for Resale" or the likes of 'Promotional Only' can be seen and determined where as "Not for Resale" or 'Promotional Only" can NOT be sold here.
The main rules which apply in the Freebies section are as follows:-

- Online accounts may only be given away if there is no line prohibiting it in the EULA
- Proof of Purchase must be shown when giving away just CD keys; this may be in the form of the media and/or documentation, or the box.

Threads which do not follow these rules are being deleted.

Have a question? Feel free to PM.
