second life getting more real by the minute

This could be the first ever virtual world lawsuit. Second Life, the massively popular virtual world where users can actually own property - is now the subject of a lawsuit.

According to Wired, the attorney, Marc Bragg of West Chester, Pennsylvania, says game developer Linden Lab unilaterally shut down his Second Life account, cutting off his access to a substantial portfolio of real estate and currency in the virtual world. He's demanding $8,000 in restitution.

Unrelated to the lawsuit - but more evidence of Second Life's pull within the real world, this weekend they simulcast the Big Weekend music festival live within Second Life.
