Copybot threatens Second Life's virtual economy
According to CNET news:
Linden Lab, which publishes Second Life, posted a blog alerting residents of the virtual world to the existence of a program or bot called CopyBot, which allows someone to copy any object in Second Life... Some virtual entrepreneurs now worry their livelihoods are at stake, and some are threatening to shut down their in-world businesses before they get fleeced... Problem is, it's not clear yet if there's anything Linden Lab can do to stop people from using the bot.
