Google declared 99 cents GMail invitations illegal

Google has updated Gmail's Terms of Service on Monday, prohibiting users from engaging in commercial activities with their Gmail invitations.

Apparently, Google is not very happy with all the Gmail invitations that were being sold accross the Internet and has decided to put an end to this officially, Notsnarc reports.

The new policy reads "Sell, trade, resell or otherwise exploit for any unauthorized commercial purpose or transfer any Gmail account", will likely spelled the end for biddings of Gmail invitations on eBay and Internet forums. Although users can now no longer sell these invitations, I believe that the endless the "Gmail queue" requests will continue until either everybody has got an account, or they eventually lose interests, or Gmail becomes publically opened. Until which ever one of those happened, expect more "GIVE ME GMAIL!" to come.
