F.B.I. Invited To Internet Casinos On Second Life
Today, April 4, 2007, the virtual creator of Second Life, Linden Lab, has invited the F.B.I. to â€œlook around in a virtual casino.â€ Second life, a popular â€œonline virtual world with millions of registered users and its own currency and economyâ€, the Linden dollar, can be exchanged for U.S. dollars. Most lawyers have said that â€œplacing bets with Linden dollars likely violate U.S. anti-gambling statutesâ€, but the U.S. government has not decided on legality and it is still uncertain â€œthe likelihood of any crackdown.â€ The three largest online virtual casinos in Second life rake in â€œa modest $1500 per monthâ€ in profit.
