I need an answer to this!
If I buy a game pack on steam (a pack that comes with gift-able copies of a game in it). Would I be able to sell a copy on eBay, befriend the person i'm selling it to on steam and gift it to them??? cause I have some copies of games that I don't want

That would be a violation of E-bay's policies.

I know Steam / Valve / Publishers / Devs doesn't allow it, I just wondered why there's nothing done against all these people breaking the rules.

yeah ik, I see it all over ebay, especially with ebays digital download policy stating that you must have permission to sell the product from the creator or distributor (if it is digital)

There are if they are found out. Several complaints in the ebay forums show as much. Some were not even selling by trade, but by key and were told they couldn't do so.

Just because people do it, doesn't mean they are allowed to. Eventually it will catch up to them.

Remember, most of them us paypal and paypal has been known to close accounts too. Wouldn't be surprised if people lost a fair amount from doing this.
