SIn the Netherlands, as you may already be aware, some laws can be a little...different. One of those instances is related to gaming, in that if you're an MMO player, your virtual goods are - according to Dutch law - as good as real goods. Which is why two Runescape players, aged 15 and 14, have been convicted of coercing another player, aged 13, out of a "virtual amulet and a virtual mask". For their crimes, the 15 year-old copped 200 hours community service, while the 14 year-old was given 160 hours worth. Remember, virtual deviants: in Holland, you do the crime, you do the time.
