Regulation of Virtual Worlds
Date: April 08, 2011
Location:Irvine
Governing the Magic Circle: Regulation of Virtual Worlds. Co-hosted by UC Irvine School of Law and UCI Center for Computer Games & Virtual Worlds. Virtual computer worlds have become an emerging phenomenon in the current social environment. Each day millions of users interact through such interfaces. Millions of dollars change hands. Virtual worlds have become an important part of the information economy, not only for entertainment, but for education, scientific research, social networking, and military defense. How is such activity to be governed? Formal regulation, informal agreement, private contract, economic incentives, and social norms all play a role. This symposium gathers experts in law, economics, social science, computer science, communications, and cultural studies to explore the complex interaction of new and established mechanisms for governing virtual worlds.
