+ - Virtual rape is traumatic but is it a crime ?

Submitted by cyberianpan
cyberianpan (975767) writes "Wired is carrying commentary on the story that Brussels police have begun an investigation into a citizen's allegations of rape — in Second Life. For reasons of civil liberty & clarity we'd like to confine criminal law to physical offences rather than thought crimes but already threats , menace & conspiracy count as crimes. Could we see a situation where our laws extend ? What if people started signing contracts that made Second Life criminal law "real" ?"

Computers are not intelligent. They only think they are.
