It's Maple Story this time, so a Japanese woman was angry at her husband divorcing her IN THE GAME without telling her, so she deleted her husband's character.

She is now charged for virtual murder, oh wow, and I tought that Runescape theft of virtual goods was a big thing.

The 43-year-old Japanese piano teacher logged on using his password and erased the avatar the man had spent a year building up in the interactive game "Maple Story".
Maple Story

She should be given a fucking medal. Maple Story is shit.

Read the whole thing, she wasn't charged for "deleting a character".

"She was charged with illegal access onto a computer and manipulating electronic data. If convicted, she could face a prison term of up to five years or a fine up to £2,500."

See?

lol MMORPGs.


In the beginning the Universe was created. This has made a lot of people very angry and has been widely regarded as a bad move.

That is why you tell no one your password, even spouses. Also how much is that in American money $6000?

God damn this is getting out of had, first that stupid runescape fiasco and now this. The courts shoudnt even bother with these kind of cases, everything in a video game can be obtained over and over again, sure some things take time to get but still it can be obtained again.
