Well these days electronics can be traced by using electronic serial numbers or electronic identification numbers, (ever wonder how someone who steals a smartphone gets caught?) yes video games have them too. The physical copies are easier to steal, but if you steal digital codes and try to resell them, you may as well break into someone's house and leave your fingerprints everywhere.

How exactly were people expected to know that those keys were obtained in illegal way? I admit I brought Far Cry 4 from one of those two retailers and got "my" game deactivated but how exactly was I supposed to know that it was obtained illegally? It is not my fault so therefore I should not be punished for it. Now the funny thing is that both Ubisoft and that said retailer refuse to give me back refund.

Did you report the seller to Ubisoft? Not the website, the seller.

I'd let Ubisoft know mate, I'm almost certain they'll do something for those who've been affected by the crime. You might feel punished right now, but they will give you something as compensation I'm sure.

I wonder who the sellers were so I know to avoid in the future
