Johnny Fusion writes "Breedable pets in Second Life is serious business, Recently the maker of virtual rabbits, Ozimals Inc, issued a Cease and Desist Letter, followed by a DMCA take down notice against virtual Horse makers Amaretto Breedable Ranch asking Linden Labs to remove Amaretto's content from the Second Life Grid. Amaretto replied by filing suit in Federal Court claiming misuse of copyright, tortious interference, unfair competition and misrepresentation.

The complaint can be viewed online here..

For those that think this is not serious business, limited edition Amaretto Horses were recently auctioned raising over $64,000 USD, given to the American Cancer Society for breast cancer awareness and research."
