Abstract

This paper asserts to justify the existence and recognition of intellectual property rights in virtual worlds. Although this task has already been done before, this work concentrates on three fundamental aspects: a) its existence in virtual worlds; b) its ownership and its recognition by owners and proprietors of virtual worlds; and c) the possibility of suing someone in case of an infringement within the frame of the virtual world.
