Second Second Life Lawsuit Over Erotic Goods

A group of six players of Second Life have banded together and named Thomas Simon, aka Rase Kenzo, defendant in suit alleging virtual item theft and reproduction. Kevin Alderman, notorized for his Eros sex bed lawsuit, is one of the plaintiffs in this case as well.

Sex Toys Aren't All Fun and Games

After hearing Alderman speak at the Virtual Worlds Conference, I understand why he takes this so importantly; for him, it is his livelihood. I just wonder if his actions are not akin to those of the music industry when they try to deal with digital piracy by suing individual infringers? Probably not, since the deterrent factor will be strengthened by the small number of infringers.
