In the UK, where this product is also sold and thus its laws also apply, three court cases over EULA's have been fought. One said "Yes, legal" the second said "No, not legal". The third was settled out of court so no judgment can be gleaned for future use. I'm not aware of EU court rulings on the matter.
As I said in my post its things like this which have yet to be settled. In the case of MMO's where the company/servers are based in one country... does that countries laws supercede local laws where the item was purchased? I'm thinking no. But you never know.
