Editor Benjamin Duranske to Co-Chair American Bar Association Committee on Virtual Worlds and Multiuser Online Games
September 7th, 2007 by Benjamin Duranske
I am pleased to announce that the ABA’s Section of Science and Technology Law recently formed a new committee on Virtual Worlds and Multiuser Online Games. I have the honor of co-chairing this committee, along with Sean Kane, of Drakeford & Kane, and Cristina Burbach, of Fried Frank. From the Committee’s initial “who we are” statement:
The Virtual Worlds and Multiuser Online Games Committee (“VWMOG Committee”) of the Section of Science and Technology Law of the ABA will focus on the legal issues raised by the existence of virtual worlds and massively multiplayer on-line role playing games. [...]
The VWMOG Committee’s immediate work plan includes creation of a website, an email listserv, and a facility in the virtual world of Second Life. Longer term goals include organizing programs for future ABA meetings and facilitating the publication of research articles and texts addressing legal issues related to virtual worlds and multiuser online games.
ABA members who are interested in virtual law are encouraged to join the committee, or contact me, Sean, or Cristina directly for more information.
