Are you one of those people “illegitimately accessing Xbox Live marketplace downloadable content”?  Did you recently recieve a notice on how doing so “constituted  a blatant violation of the Terms of Use for the service”. Two things; first: stop that. Second: no more Xbox Live for you.

From the Xbox Live Forums

“During the course of a recent investigation, we have discovered users who illegitimately accessed Xbox LIVE Marketplace downloadable content. Our investigation reveals that this access was intentional and not accidental, constituting a blatant violation of the Terms of Use for the service. We will not divulge additional information regarding individual suspensions for these offenses.

Please know that we are being very careful regarding these suspensions, and have clear evidence regarding each account issued a permanent suspension from the service. We apologize for any frustration or confusion resulting from our inability to share individual details, and thank you all for your cooperation in this matter.”

Personally I think it’s fair. If I’ve got to pay $3 for those new Adidas for my Xbox Live avatar you should too!
