Creationist Capitalism in Virtual Worlds: Originality that Pays

Hi! I like how you incorporate the idea of intellectual property rights. While I was reading, I kept coming back to the idea that the corporations who make money off of these virtual worlds might one day want to reserve the rights to objects created in the world. This would definitely change the dynamic in the world and I wonder if it would hinder the users’ desire to create if they didn’t own the finished product?
