The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals has ruled that software publishers can legally prohibit the resale of used software by including a clause in the software license agreement. I think this ruling is being appealed, but if it is upheld, it would mean used game sales would become a thing of the past. No one - including both stores and individual consumers - would legally be able to sell any games with such a clause. Any used game sales would have to be limited to games that were made before these clauses became common place.
