IIRC, the glider case says that bots are illegal, due to copyright since it has to technically copy the code to run in memory, when you don't have a license to run it. And there are similar issues with selling your characters.
Here's what I'm wondering, though: if this is considered fraud, and EA can pursue it, then EA is stating their in-game currency is worth real money. If it's worth real money, they can't simply forbid it from being sold. If they claim it's theirs (which virtually every game maker does) and has zero value (which virtually every game maker does), having it worth a real value could force it to be declared legal to sell characters and in-game currency for real-world money. Doctrine of first sale and so on.
