Abstract:     
As the virtual world and the real world begin to collide, what damages exist to the owner of virtual property? What are the consequences from building a pay-to-play virtual world that accepts real world money for virtual items?

In discussing the questions articulated above, the author analyzes the example of a virtual horse named American Hero and the real world damages that appear to have occurred by virtue of his death.
