This is true. This is why you buy SC first then items. and not items for actual cash. If the new launchers had a $7 price tag on them, and not 700 SC, then people might have a point. There would still be a legal argument if you did buy items with actual cash, as items are digital and reside on servers owned by SOE, and all you are buying is a license to use them (like every other video game) but when you buy SC first and use SC to buy items, they can do whatever with whatever completely at will, and you have to go with it. When you buy SC, so long as they credit your account with the SC, their obligation ends there.
