CAN VIRTUAL CHILD PORN BE A REAL CRIME? (probably)

The Dutch prosecutor's office is considering legal actions to test the law against child porn in the popular virtual game Second Life. With no clear litigation, it is difficult to act against perpetrators.

Kitty Nooij, who is in charge of the sex offences portfolio at the prosecutor's office in the Netherlands, told Dutch news show Netwerk that she will try to bring cases to court so precedents can be set.

Linden Lab's Second Life is an online digital world with almost three million "residents" claimed by the company. Some areas of Second Life allow adult members to have virtual sex with others who pretend to be children.

Experts, such as psychologist Jos Buschman of the Van Mesdag clinic in Groningen, say Second Life is "by definition a school for paedophiles", despite the fact that adult members like to roleplay as children. Second Life requires all players to be adults

I am troubled by this. One could argue that creating a virtual reality that allows pedophiles, perverts and rapists a place to indulge in their sickest fantasies might actually serve to corral these creeps into one snow globe of sickness, keeping them away from real people who might serve as real victims.

This concept could also work with arsonists, necrophiliacs and members of Moveon.org.

Don't forget to watch the show tonight. I am going to wear a striped shirt!
