Bug Description

(In the GTK3 UI, this bug is currently masked by bug 830291.)

Ubuntu Software Center 4.0.4, Ubuntu 11.04

1. Navigate to the screen for Beep, or Volley Brawl, or World of Goo, or any of the other "For Purchase" items.
2. Choose "Edit" > "Copy Web Link".
3. Paste into Twitter or wherever.

What happens:
2. The item is insensitive.

What should happen:
2. The item is sensitive.
3. A working link for the item is pasted, e.g. http://apt.ubuntu.com/p/beep-game

Without this, it's much harder to promote the items.
