Chinese online gamer stabbed for selling virtual sword

From the Manawatu Standard: New Zealand’s leading news and information website:

A Shanghai online player stabbed to death a competitor who sold his cyber-sword, said yesterday, creating a dilemma in China where no law exists for the ownership of virtual weapons.

Qiu Chengwei, 41, stabbed competitor Zhu Caoyuan repeatedly in the chest after he was told Zhu had sold his “dragon sabre”, used in the popular online game Legend of Mir 3, the newspaper said a Shanghai court was told on Tuesday.

Legend of Mir 3 features heroes and villains, sorcerers and warriors, many of whom wield enormous swords.
