License Transfer Concerns

Hello, Xbox Live forums and support!

I would like to ask some questions about license transferring. I looked on the part of the website about it, but it seemed a little unclear.

I have a friend who owns a copy of "Grand Theft Auto 5." If he were to license transfer this to me, (I know it's possible. Many people have been doing this over Xbox Live.) would either of us get banned? I don't want his profiles, his console, my profiles, or my console to get banned. So, that is why I'm asking this question. Would either of our consoles or profiles get banned for this? If he license transfers it to me, can he still play/own the game on his console and profile?

Thanks, hope you have a nice day.

In short... yes, you would both get banned.

What you are describing is called Marketplace Theft and is against the ToU and CoC of the Live service that was agreed to upon creation of the account.

If caught doing something like this you not only risk having your gamertag(s) banned but also the possibility of having the console(s) involved banned as well.

It's best to purchase your own copy of the game.

Did this solve your problem?

Sorry this didn't help.

Great! Thanks for marking this as the answer.
