Making Real Money in Virtual Reality

Veronica Brown is able to make a living selling her digital fashions in the online world Second Life.

Washington Post reports on a fashion designer who brings in $60,000 a year designing clothes sold inside Second Life.  But with any business, there are pitfalls…

Brown got an unnerving reminder last month of how tenuous her livelihood is when a rogue software program that copies animated objects appeared in Second Life. Scared that their handiwork could be cloned and sold by others, Brown and her fellow shopkeepers launched a general strike and briefly closed their electronic storefronts.

A virtual strike?
