IGE in licensing agreements with MMOs?

It is being reported on UO Powergamers.com (and of course discussed on Terra Nova) that uber-virtual-currency-trader IGE has negotiated licensing agreements with at least five different MMOs. These agreements would presumably allow them to conduct their currency trading etc for a payment to the game companies. Which shows you that for once history is on our side and that the game companies are ever so slowly coming to grips with (a) reality and (b) that you can’t make the laws of economics go away by sticking your head in the sand. Gosh, it seem like just yesterday that you could get yourself banned from a game for mentioning IGE in an off-site blog! It is anticipated that there will be an official announcement at E3.
