Fan Wants Gold Farming Ban in World of Warcraft

Posted Mon, Apr 07, 2008 by Aelryn

The law man is gunning for you now, IGE.

According to an article in the Sun Sentinel, a World of Warcraft fan is seeking legal recourse against IGE for ruining his play experience.

It will be waged in the Fort Lauderdale federal courthouse. The former assistant manager at an Orlando-area video game store is suing a company he says sells "virtual gold" from the World of Warcraft for real money. He wants IGE U.S. banned from selling gold — a practice commonly called "gold farming" or "real money trading"— because it hurts the game's economy and ruins the entertainment experience, according to the lawsuit. Virtual gold, earned within the game, can be used for such things as buying and repairing equipment or learning new skills.

I really don't understand racism in the real world. People are what people are, regardless of skin pigmentation or where their ancestors came from. There's really only one real-world race - the Human Race - and I loathe everyone equally.
