Second Life Again

In an earlier post (see note), we reported on the use of the virtual world in Second Life by paedophiles. A story on Sky News (yes, I know that it's Murdoch - see story) caught our attention as it shows Linden Labs co-operating with the authorities on both sides of the Atlantic and closing down the offending areas of Second Life.

The point that I find most interesting is that the US principle of the First Amendment (the right to freedom of speech to some, the pornographers charter to others) has been watered down by the impact of legal pressure from jurisdictions outside of the US.

We see this as an example of how Globalisation as a rule set is homogenising the way we all live our lives.
