Games: Virtual mugging in MMORPG leads to arrest
In Japan a man has been arrested for beating up and rob characters in the online computer game Lineage II. Apparently he used bots to help make his character strong, and kills others and sells the things he gets online.

Oh, and get this quote "every form of theft and fraud in the real world will eventually be duplicated in cyberspace" What crime? beating/killing the other players is part of what was built into the game.

So, apparently every all players of MMORPG that includes any PvP are all criminals. *shudders to think if everyone in UO pressed charges*

I'll start linking to the news I find on this. Computer characters mugged in virtual crime spree
