Frequently Asked Question #166. What is LiveJournal's policy on account selling or trading?

Selling any LiveJournal account for commercial or monetary gain, including payments of LiveJournal services such as paid time or tokens, is prohibited by the Terms of Service. Breaking into any journal for the purpose of trading or selling the account is also strictly prohibited. Accounts proven to have been traded or sold for commercial gain, or proven to have been hijacked by someone for that purpose, are subject to permanent suspension at any time, regardless of whether or not the person currently in control of the account is the one who initially traded, sold, or broke into it.

Furthermore, these types of traded accounts are inherently insecure; a traded journal is never completely secure because the original owner may reset the password for six months after you change the account's email address. Therefore, you should never accept a traded account, as you may not be fully aware of its complete history.
