I personally don't see any rules, I see options. Please post the rules regarding looting from the EULA if you find them, thanks.

Sadly, if I hadn't said anything, I don't think he would have either - I think he would have gone away angry about the 'ninja' even though I may just not have realized it. And had I not seen him need on it, I wouldn't have realized it until later when I went to equip it (so him just saying 'hey, that was for my class' would have fixed the whole thing).
I didn't. Each roll that the Operative got (I said smuggler earlier...I have too many toons lol) everyone but me rolled greed on it. I normally pass gear if it is something someone obviously needs. So the Juggernaut and the Mara both rolled 'greed' on gear that dropped for our Operative in the group. Which is fine. The last drop, he selected 'need' on. To me that was a sign that he was:
A. Pissed that no gear he needed dropped
B. He really needed that gear for his companion.

Last time it happened in the Maelstrom Prison while I was on my Smuggler, I did say something. That time as I normally do, I selected 'pass' on anything I myself couldn't use and since I was the only Smuggler, 'need' on the stuff I could use. The one thing I actually needed was the Jacket that comes from that FP and the Sentinel selected 'need' on it. I called him out for it that time. This time, I decided I'm gonna start ignoring people who do that and my one of my wife's level 50 toons run the FP with me lol. Breeze through the content and get ALL the gear drops lol.

You're right. No rules, just common courtesy which is obviously not so common anymore.

The only difference between social rules and laws is that you cant get punished for breaking a social rule.
That's a pretty big difference, don't you think?

The game's mechanics not only allow, but encourage, selfish behavior. Any system of courtesy or etiquette that tries to counter this fact is only so much wet tissue paper.

Human nature is human nature. And in today's society greed > decensy 99/100 times. Take a serious look at all the problems around the world right now, what's the main driver most of the time?

Morality is relative

Common courtesy tends to go out the window in an environment where you wont get your a$&* beat for your actions. - author unknown.

Good thing my actions are not influenced by society but rather by how I prefer to treat people and would like to be treated by people.

It is a simple matter of courtesy and decency. There are selfish people running around the game that have neither of those things. It is not an issue that is exclusive to new players.
