BOY “STEALS” ONLINE MONEYS! OH NOEZ!

January 25, 2008

Oh yes. Apparently a boy in Japan has stolen 36 Million yen of Virual Money for the gameMabinogi! Why did he resort to such drastic measures you may be wondering? What could have been so enticing in the game that he had to go and hack into someones account and steal all the money? Well he wanted a pink Princess dress for his character.

OH NOEZ THE WoW IS UNDER ATTACK.

For serious though, how do we treat “online” or “virtual” crimes? Are they just as bad as real crimes? Should people be prosecuted for stealing money from someone else or is BANNNNZZZ working just as well? SHOULD WE REALLY CARE ABOUT ETHICS (yes I did just write Ethnics there and had to correct it) and MORALS IN AN ONLINE VIRTUAL ENVIRONMENT THAT ESSENTIALLY IS NOT REAL? I have no clue.

These are the questions I pose to you dear Readers.

Maybe you can help.
