Second Life, (http://www.secondlife.com) an online virtual worlds system, has become the center of a recent copyright controversy involving, yes, virtual sex toys. Apparently, there are not enough legitimate or inexpensive sex toys for all the denizens of Second Life, so some residents have elected to make knock-offs. Just like the real-world controversies surrounding real-world goods made by companies like Tiffany and Louis Vuitton, Eros LLC has filed suit against the alleged infringers and Linden Labs, for housing and supporting the alleged knock-offs.
