Sophrosyne’s Saturday Salon: Virtual Law

Join us this Saturday, May 10 from 1-2:30 pm SLT in the Central Nexus at Extropia Core for Sophrosyne’s Saturday Salon!  This week, our Salon Spotlight Guest is Benjamin Duranske (Benjamin Noble), author of the authoritative legal blog Virtually Blind and the new book from the American Bar Association Press, Virtual Law: Navigating the Legal Landscape of Virtual Worlds.

Ben is a terrific writer, who makes difficult subjects accessible and interesting. I’d been daunted by a 450-page law book with such topics at “Further Identification of Documents in Virtual Worlds,” but  it’s a smooth, engrossing and enlightening read, and well worth the troubles of navigating the ABA’s online store to obtain a copy. If you’re doing business in a virtual world, or concerned about your personal rights, this book is an excellent investment.

Ben will be discussing his book as well as a number of controversial legal issues confronting residents and business people in virtual worlds, so if you have questions about the rules and forces increasingly shaping virtual worlds, come on down – this promises to be one of our best sessions ever!

(While we may well use our half hour of scheduled overtime and run till 3pm, if Ben has the energy, I will be leaving promptly to attend the conference in World of Warcraft!)
