WW3 would be about digital rights

Politics, ownership, and rights… I think Cory was right in saying there’s something wrong with saying credit and digital rights are fully supported in a global virtual world where people can freely take photos of your creation and claim credit for the photo (and indirectly and sometimes directly) for your 3d piece.

In other news, I can seriously see WW3 happening because of virtual world “digital millennia” disputes. I mean, drama can only come from only so few things. It’s always the same story, essentially. And it’s all so proverbial… it goes straight to family life and custody of a child which both parents “created.” When you have international collaboration done informally, everyone can essentially claim credit. Those with big guns would want to assert dominance. And since many people have big guns, a whole bunch of people would bring in their guns to fight.  Voila — WW3!

(Don’t comment — comments are closed on this blog. Posting it now with vague hopes of becoming a historical prophet… or to brag to obscure people about obscure matters from antidiluvian days… assuming I survive ww3!)
