What are you people expecting. Half of this forum doesn't even grasp the basics of legal licensing. How do you honestly expect them to understand this issue. Just take a look in the classifieds thread.
Look, I get it that you are knowledgeable in law issues. And I respect that you are trying to explain some things to us. But what I am expecting is some clear explanations.
You say in your very first post:
The license is created/transferred when the key is redeemed. Not when the key is bought. The gift code is not a license.
And then there is this:
Very weird because I received Second Sight from a giveaway after it had been pulled from the store and there was no problem activating it. So for some games it is possible, for others it's not?
That makes your "when the key is redeemed" opinion wrong.
I would like some clear non-conflicting explanation from GOG, not "technically impossible".
And as I wrote in the support ticket I'd like to make things clear. I own
those games. I have them on my account. So I'm not bitching and moaning about how I'm not getting those games. I already have them. I will neither gain or lose anything irrelevant of how this gets resolved. But I am frustrated by something I see as simply "not right" and by a lack of proper explanation.
It's like in the PS3 topic. You don't have to be affected by some customer unfriendly action to give a damn and make a stand, as some people seem to think.
