We're Doomed: Virtual Lawyers

We're doomed, not by swine flu, but virtual lawyers. It's a sign of the Apocalypse. It seems some law firms are setting up shop in virtual worlds like Second Life to handle disputes like pirated virtual goods. Virtual money there translates to real money. So when an allegedly scuzzy citizen there sells pirated virtual goods owned by another, furniture in this case, actual money is lost. Some Second Lifers spend a fair amount of time and talent constructing objects for sale, and pay high rental fees for their virtual real estate.
