This is genuine pan creation science fiction

An ad hoc movement inside Second Life that we can only call Citizens against abundance is protesting the new wild west inside Second Life where a clever client hack has made all intellectual property copyable which has transformed property rights in Second Life from a system feature (uniquely possible in a single server authority virtual world) into a social contract (the norm in the real world). Imagine a matrix you can't get out of and this story is simply a brilliant setup for all kinds of science fiction.

(The computer science geeks are hard at work debating how to provide hard guarantees against this kind of thing. The geek fashion for how to model this kind of thing revolves around capabilities and the very interesting E language)
