    Too bad the guy the didn't steal a real sword. The guy who was robbed could've taken the sword back and then stabbed him to death with it, which would've been ironic.

    People just forgot that a game is to be enjoyed and have fun playing with.
    Some really just get to engrossed with them and not able to differ what is real and what is not anymore.

    meaning...

    people should go outside and turn off thier PCs for a while.

    The thought of actually converting our minds into VR (virtual reality for anyone who didnt know) would be a good idea, but we would also have to think of the consequences of it. things like :would it truly take over our lives? or Would it push us to do this same thing more often? If we were to have true property in a VR game, or in VR in general, we would be able to switch between the two and if we lost something of great value to us, who knows what we would do. We just might have a repeat of this killing.

    I think it's sad and patheic at the same time. This is what happens when you make these games a little TOO lifelike. Now I like the idea of virtual reality and the progression into that area, but when shit like this happens, I always get that second thought, what about the mentally unstable people? The people who play it like it's more than a game? These are the people that make it so we HAVE to have the ratings on video games, if I were a creator of this game, I'd be exetremely dissappointed in people's lack of self-control.

    Well, some people really need help. Killing others over a sword? Please.

    Anyway, back to what I was saying. Music IS digital. How about people that compose their music on the computer? It's no different from how a game is created.

    Also, web pages. I could've sworn they counted as intellectual property. That's why everything released on the web is automatically considered copyrighted. I forgot what caused that, but the same thing also enabled people to forbid certain others from getting onto their website through some act signed by Clinton (I think).

    Games most definitely count as property. BUT, this is a tricky situation, because if the guy argues that the sword counts as digital property, then the defense can simply argue that since the developers of the game created the code, then the developers should be the only ones selling it. I doubt the ability to sell items from that game was provided.
    Maybe I'll come up eith a sig soon... until then, be patient.
