    Yes it still works.
    However be careful with it and use it at your own risk.

    Well, crud. Anyway, I'll be "getting" his account later on... How can I avoid getting banned when trying to do this?

    You can still do it.
    Just don't pull attention with it on XBLive by going around saying you got it via a license transfer glitch.
    And don't let your mate share it with everyone he knows.

    That pretty much keeps you from getting banned.

    Say you purchased Minecraft on your own 360 (Xbox A)
    Your mate also wants it on his 360 (Xbox B)

    You (Xbox A) has the license for that game.
    You log into your account on your mates system (Xbox B) and transfer your license (Xbox A) to his console (Xbox B)
    Now Xbox A and Xbox B contain the same licenses.
    Now you (your account on Xbox B) downloads Minecraft.
    Now your mate can sign into his account on Xbox B and play the game.

    In fine print, most (if not all) games say in their manual, on the case, etc., that you agree to not share your game. I think some DVDs and CDs say that, too..

    It's "piracy"
    Since the other didn't pay for it.

    Ohh... well stuff like that has been going on forever I mean think about music one person buys a CD then he gives it to a friend to put the music on their computer I mean is it really piracy if someone has already bought it and your really just kinda borrowing it.:unsure:

    You don't own the disc, so it's basically piracy yes.
    If you rip it for yourself without keeping the original.

    But it's nitpicking really.

    How is that any different from piracy? Downloading music, games, movies, etc. Someone else already bought it, and not only do you get to use it, but they do and anyone else who downloads it too.

    Now, I'm not saying boo piracy or yay piracy, but the CD scenario is basically the same thing. It shouldn't be "piracy," but it is.

    Really people could argue this type of thing forever I mean what about a library a person or group buys 1 book and hundreds of people get to read it for free or a reduced price and the publisher doesn't make a cent and that's legal so there really is a fine line on what piracy is and isn't.

    You rent it from a library and the library takes a cut and sends the rest to the authors iirc...

    But as you said, people can argue for ages on this.

    It really comes down to your moral, ethnic, and financial status what you support and don't support and just preference.

    Well, first of all, libraries are legal. Second of all, when someone gets a book from the library, they're the only ones reading it, until they return it. When you borrow a cd, rip it, then give it back, you're getting a free copy for life. When you download something from a torrent site or whatever, you're getting a free copy for life.

    Some libraries require you to pay? That's weird. I guess I can't really say I know trends, though, since I've only ever been to one.

    I guess you have to pay for a membership?
