I just stumbled over some temp locked threads in the market forum, where people are trying to sell their Image Line accounts to European Costumers. Meffy want this cleared with Ben before he will unlocks them. I would love to resell my IM VSTis too, but not if there were any doubts about legal issues, so I just have to ask: What is there for Ben to consider?
In another thread a member posted this:
Basically, if you are european customer, you can resell.
Author of software cannot oppose the resale of his used licences allowing the use of his programs downloaded from the internet as stated at Court of Justice of the European Union Press Release 94/12.

Therefore, even if the licence agreement prohibits a further transfer, the rightholder can no longer oppose the resale of that copy.
Yet, it doesn't seem that Image Line agree and have implemented such possibilities in their policy yet.
So, don't we have any lawyers around at KVR, pro or amateur who can help clarfify what there is to be considered here? I know there are a good deal of members who would love to resell their Image Line and Cakewalk licenses and I am indeed one of them.
It must be important to Ben too, because KVR is supposed to be a legit site and rules that violates people's legal right to resell would counter that.
Edit: By amateurs I mean students or other people who have knowledge about law but not necessarily are practising it for a living.
