It seems the Dutch are taking virtual crime very seriously these days. Two youngsters have been sentenced to community service for stealing virtual goods from another youth on a computer game.

Presumably Dutch authorities will have the youths out sweeping up old joints in coffee shops and washing brothel shop windows where law-abiding citizens spend their time.
