Default Blizzard to take 15% from player-to-player sales

I admit that I am not 100% sure how the auction house in Diablo III is going to work, but it seems if a player wants to sell a regular item to another player, Blizzard will take $1 from the sale. For things like stackable items, that fee rises a bit to 15% of the total sale.

It's going to be really, really interesting to see how the game is going to fare with this mechanic. I think it has its advantages, but overall I don't really like the idea of in-game sales being a part of a game like this.
