If it was a criminal act, why does EBay carry them? And what law was it that made it illegal?

First off, it's not selling account accesses that's illegal, it's the proposition that you can sell digital property which in fact belongs to the game owner's.   Every single piece of equiptment, character, etc, in SWG (As an example) is property of SOE regardless of who's account mantains control over said asset.  What your transaction entails is the reimbursement for time and effort expended to acquire the assets the buyer is seeking to acquire without the expense of said time & energy.

Clear it up any?

I'm fairly certain it is not illegal.  The auctions are considered to be for the time put in to earn such things not the actual items.    

It is however against the agreement you accept when you play the game.  So if SWG does catch you they can ban your account
