NY Post HeadlineVirtual law is in the mainstream news media today. The recently-filed lawsuit in which six major Second Life designers are suing Thomas Simon, a New York man who allegedly used the avatar ‘Rase Kenzo’ to make thousands of copies best-selling in-world items, has landed on the front page of the inimitable New York Post.

The headline? Booty and the Geek. The article includes a picture of Simon, several quotes from the plaintiffs, and a few comments from the defendant, including a claim that he views Second Life as just “a video game” in spite of the fact that more than a million U.S. dollars change hands in-world every day.

For more on the story, see VB‘s earlier coverage of the lawsuit.
