CAG Gamesharing FAQ
Q: How does gamesharing work?
A: It's simple. Once you buy a game, that game is tied to your PSN ID. Basically all you do is give someone your account info, and they click "download again." Both players will have the game, but remember, don't delete the account from your PSN, or the downloaded game will be gone!
Q: This whole gamesharing thing sounds sketchy to me. Is it legit?
A: From CheapyD, the man himself:
Approved by Jack Tretton, President and CEO of Sony Computer Entertainment of America
Sony announced that players who download games from PlayStation's online shop can share them on up to five other PS3 machines.
If a player logs into his PlayStation 3 account on a friend's system, he can download any game he has already purchased. "You can send that content to four other friends for that initial investment," said Tretton. "We want to get the game in as many hands as possible." "It's not about generating profits at each and every interaction with the consumer," he said. "I think that really offsets the argument that says, 'Wow, that's a really pricey system.'"
Q: Feedback should be left for this transaction, right?
A:No. Per Trading/Feedback rules and guidelines in the trading forum:
Trading on CAG is "at your own risk". However, there are some special cases where feedback is not allowed and engaging in this specific trading activity warrants a special warning. Onto the list :

November 18, 2011 FAQ
Gamesharing will no longer be the same. Massive changes has been announced on November 4 that will affect the gamesharing community.
1) Content purchased AFTER Armageddon will be limited to 2 system activations.
2) Content purchased BEFORE Ragnarok will still have 5 system activations
3) It is now possible to deactivate systems remotely from your PS3 (frees up activation slots held my bricked PS3s)*
4) PS+ works in a similar fashion, everything downloaded before the 18th can be downloaded 5x, anything after can only be downloaded twice.
*This can only be done once every 6 months.
