Their conclusions:

The biggest RMT groups are connected.

With a few small exceptions, most larger groups are using common funds to do their work.

Removing Front-End folks and Bankers is not enough. It is effective in removing large amounts of currency from the game, but it will encourage the Hunters to increase productivity for their new masters.

The real goal is to eliminate the Hunters. This helps players by removing irritating experiences from the game world. It indirectly weakens the RMT front-end folks by lowering their supply of goods.

They'll be back. It doesn't matter if they're banned, they'll be back soon with new accounts. The company needs to keep cleaning, despite the 're-spawn' rate.

You have to maintain a good back-end data system to ensure these people can be identified.

Systems must be tweaked as often as possible to minimize Hunter success. Security holes must be closed, etc. At the same time, these efforts must be not harmful to the players. As an example: they added a monster to a high-level fishing area to ensure low-level Hunters were kept at bay. He's easy to kill for appropriate-level characters, but the low-level Hunter avatars run to the zone to do nothing but fish are easily destroyed.

It's critical to construct 'fair' guidelines to determine what is and isn't accepted. You can't ban all accounts from a country, for example. Don't encourage witchhunts among the players.

It's also important to keep it an internal discussion with the legal department, to get consensus with everyone on board.

Probably won't, but doesn't mean they won't at least read it. Wink

Haven't you heard? CCP is very strongly against RMT, they even posted dev-blogs about it. That's why the introduced new features to their website to enable more secure RMT trade Rolling Eyes
