Just a quick post closing out an ugly week in virtual law on a more upbeat note. On Tuesday, I had the pleasure of attending a solid presentation on legal issues facing virtual worlds in Second Life. The presentation was given by ‘Shmapple Patrono,’ the avatar of a student at Ithaca College. It was well attended, and covered topics ranging from the Bragg v. Linden Lab lawsuit, to intellectual property infringement, to Second Life’s EULA. Ithaca College Assistant Professor Kim Gregson has posted a short summary and a few screenshots here.
