Editorial Reviews

Review

"For anyone interested in virtual worlds or massively multiplayer online games, this book will be fascinating on so many levels. Appealing, beautifully-written and chock-full of insight, "Virtual Justice" sets out the laws for brand new territories, creating the maps that we need to navigate these remarkable places. Of value to everyone--lawyers, laypeople, regulators, thinkers--Lastowka gives us the definitive account of the laws of the virtual worlds."--Dan Hunter, Professor of Law & Director, Institute for Information Law & Policy, New York Law School and Co-founder of Terra Nova blog: terranova.blogs.com--Dan Hunter

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I highly recommend this book. The subject is well researched and right. I am seriously considering this book as a textbook for the Certificate in Virtual Worlds I created and teach at the University of Washington. The book understands the fundamental thing required by law - lower the risk on your company when entering into virtual world business and recognize the contract is the product not the virtual good. That being said property is property and original ideas and innovation must be patented if you expect to call it yours. Beware the legality of the terms of service. They may not hold up in court as rulings are made on ownership of virtual goods, spaces and server ownership. When information is cocreated and collectively aggregated make sure intent for transferability is super clear and codified If you read this book you are going to reduce your risk and own what is rightfully yours. Don't be caught without it. I would love to meet Lastowka and spend a long dinner chatting over wine. As a consultant and developer and managing partner of 2b3d a book like this keeps dialogue with my lawyer real.
