Technically there is no difference in crime here than the kid that cracked Palin's yahoo password. Although the maximum penalty of "five years in prison or a fine up to $5,000." is outrageous for this sort of crime.

It's not like she was brought up on murder charges. She's a hacker, although a bad one, and got caught.

I just find it interesting that she 'killed' a virtual character. What a strange world we live in. It always amazes me how much stock people have put into these virtual realms.

Favorite quote from the article:

Quote:
In Tokyo, a 16-year-old boy was charged with stealing the ID and password from a fellow player of an online game in order to swindle virtual currency worth $360,000.
Wow. It's a brave new world in there.

Next stop, the Twilight Zone. It's all going to come together in one big virtual blender. VR meets virtual life.
