Computer Weekly weighs in on content theft lawsuit
ComputerWeekly.com has a good piece HERE on the lawsuit filed against Linden Lab, the owner of Second Life. "Over in Second Life, trade remains robust. The value of transactions between residents in the second quarter of this year was $144 million, a year-on-year increase of 94 per cent. With its users swapping virtual goods and services worth around $600 million per year, Second Life has the largest economy of any virtual world - which exceeds the GDP of 19 countries, including Samoa." At issue is how much the Second Life is liable for alleged IP rights violations by other users. Should be interesting to follow this.
