Dept. of Virtual-Justice-For-All

Court ruled in favor of the victim of theft

The court got his belongings back. That's maybe no news (or in some instances it is where the law enforcement seem interested in every thing but helping people) but this time it is virtual belongings in a RPG-game on the net.

Li Hongchen hade spent more than thousand dollars on making a big cache of virtual money and stuff in the game Red Moon when his account was hacked and destroyed. Tough luck said the gaming company but Li did sue them to get the "things" back. And he won.

That's all nice. But one can wonder if the court shouldn't ordered Li to get a life...
