If you consider that (Ralph Koster's post) a "short read", I'd hate to see what you call a _long_ read ;)Btw, you need to edit one of the last lines of your article. "...the want of rights in a purely entertainment-driven venue is important for the continuation of that fun." I do not think it means what you think it means. "Want" in that context does not mean 'desire', it means 'lack'. So although even if you meant "desire", the sentence doesn't make a great deal of sense, it makes none if you meant "lack".It'll be interesting to see where you take this series. Since Koster has no authority, his declaration of rights is non-binding and carries no power over Blizzard or anyone else-- unless they freely choose to be bound by it. However, as an expression of the rights he thinks we ought to have over our Avatars, it's somewhat interesting as a discussion-starter.

I think Matt's a law student. You REALLY don't wanna know what he considers a long read.
