Unless you're a lawyer who specialises in this area, you are just talking out your arse.

Everything belongs to CCP and has no value to any player:

You have no interest in the value of your time spent playing the Game, for example, by the building up of the experience level of your character and the items your character accumulates during your time playing the Game. Your Account, and all attributes of your Account, including all corporations, actions, groups, titles and characters, and all objects, currency and items acquired, developed or delivered by or to characters as a result of play through your Accounts, are the sole and exclusive property of CCP, including any and all copyrights and intellectual property rights in or to any and all of the same, all of which are hereby expressly reserved.
Lucas isn't far off the mark, gambling regulators are talking about regarding any currency used for gambling as having a real world value; regardless of whether it actually does or not.

Unfortunately laws trump EULAs when there's an opportunity for government to regulate and thus tax something.

In the beginning there was nothing, which exploded.

So if I will take few round rocks and use them for gambling, the rocks will have value? as much value as what? What is one round rock worth? I will grab them all and use everywhere to buy stuff because they have real value then.
That is just nonsense if they really think like that, but what can you expect from lawyers...
They are grounded in lies.

ISK is a lie too, but sweet lie!

Real value is not money. Its: love, friendship, honesty.
Money in general is a lie passed around. Lie that government say is the only true one.

Think of it like this: No money goes to these gambling sites anymore; the full amount can be sent to these institutions you may value.
Not just a minimal part of the whole and the rest disappearing in the pockets of the site owners.
Now all you need to do is a burlesque striptease to get people to donate money to your cause.
