Today's users of virtual environments -- estimated to number 50 million by 2011 -- invest huge amounts of time, money, and heart into their online homes. But modern license agreements do not accord them any ownership over this investment. This book explores the complex relationships between virtual world inhabitants, creators, worlds, and the real-world law that now is closing in to mediate between them.
