A European court ruled last summer that content creators can't prohibit post-purchase redistribution of work, no matter what end-user license agreement says.

They might not go away, but online passes and locked content can still exist.

I think they already did. Didn't EA get sued when Dragon Age 2 was released? This was in the United States and if I recall correctly they lost.

They didn't try to ban selling games after you buy them. They're just tying your game to your console so even if you did sell it, no on else can play it.

Which is essentially the same thing Steam does and got sued for just now.
