Imagine gamer who has amassed massive virtual property in games like WoW.
Now, imagine this gamer dies in freak accident in real life.
Now, who inherits all his virtual property?
Can his relatives lay claim to his virtual stuff, like they lay claim to his real life possessions?
Can his team/guild in the game lay claim to his stuff in that particular game once they have shown to the admin that the said gamer really is deceased irl?
If the player was married in WoW, can his virtual wife lay claim to his WoW property once they have shown to the admin that the gamer who played their husband really is dead irl.
And finally, if admins of a online game find out one of their gamers is dead irl, can they auction the gamers virtual possessions, such as his house in games like WoW?
What do you say?
