Just read a bunch of forum discussions and came to this conclusion
Valve use a few sites to extend into part of Europe if you aren't in these areas while not illegal it's against their EULA.
As far as I know EA don't have any sites. As mailman mentioned some sites buy retail copies, scan the key and return the game after the key has been sold. This is why you get the odd person on forums asking why their key is on use. Other sites buy the keys cheap from other regions using the power of their currency to get it cheaper and resell. Publisher want to enforce regional distribution (EU, NA, Asia Pacific) where possible and CD keys are generated based on region and are traceable. The best example is people who used these sites to obtain the Orange Box really cheap. Valve cottoned on to a ton of US customers activating Thai Asia keys. So they just switched them off, now days they also lock the account. EA doesn't seem to monitor this, but who knows what they will do if the decide to.

I'm sorry, I had to remove the links. Otherwise people would come here, go to the site and try to buy Crysis 2, get ripped off, and then complain here about it.
