I noticed that trading magic effects that are in pdf format is strictly forbidden in the forum. Here's my question:

Is it permissible to exchange these type of secrets by private message, provided that both parties are legitimate purchasers of the effects? If not, can you please explain why not?

I am curious as to the difference between selling or trading items such as Stripper Decks, for example, and effects in pdf format. Thank you.

The difference is quite simple: It is significantly easier to copy a pdf and keep a copy for yourself. the person receiving it has no way of knowing whether you kep a copy for yourself, thereby breaking the law.

No, you are not permitted to trade these in any way on the Café, not even by PM. And lest you think that rule is unenforceable, realize that the vast majority of our members notify the staff when someone tries to skirt the rules by using PM's.

That certainly makes sense. Thanks for the explanation. And don't worry, I have no intention of trying to skirt the rules. I just wanted to be clear on the rules.

I'm sorry, I did not mean to imply that you had any such intentions. I should have said "Lest anyone" instead of "lest you"--I was using the word "you" in the collective rather than the personal.

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
