Virtual sex software spawns lawsuit
Complaint seeks to stop people from copying, selling 'Second Life' sex code
TAMPA, Fla. - Kevin Alderman didn't bring sex to "Second Life." He just made it better.
The 46-year-old entrepreneur recognized four years ago that people would pay to equip their online selves — which start out with the smooth anatomy of a Barbie or Ken doll — with realistic genitalia and even more to add some sexy moves.
Business at Alderman's company Eros has been brisk. One of his creations, the SexGen Platinum, has gotten so popular that he's now had to hire lawyers to track down the flesh-and-blood person behind the online identity, or avatar, that he says illegally copied and sold it.
The $45 SexGen animates amorous avatars in erotic positions. It is software code, written in the scripting language of "Second Life" and placed in virtual furniture and other objects. Avatars click on the object and choose from a menu of animated sex acts.
How lame do you have to be to want this thing, let alone steal the code? I mean, I love my computer as much as the next person, but really.
