Employment law issues that didn't exist when I was in law school

Employers must gain control of their employees' online behaviour and virtual attire according to business research firm Gartner. It said that companies should establish dress codes for employees' avatars.

  1. From what I have read in the past on tech websites such as the biggest threat to business meetings conducted in the virtual world, one which would include avatars etc. such as second life, is the threat of flying penis attacks.

    While many businesses have tried these virtual boardrooms on the backs of the marketing spiel layed out by the likes of Linden labs, the only money to be made through these worlds (games) is within the games themselves. You'd be hard pressed to find a benefit for one of these online worlds over say a video conference, using simple webcams and real life suits and ties.
