Could Gamers Lose More Rights?

This article by wired is pretty interesting. On one hand, it makes legal sense for the government to get involved in the MMORPG's that one can sell items or currency for real, non-virtual money. On the other hand, it is scary that the government would get involved in online gaming, it seems that the government is already violating enough privacy without monitoring online games. The author of the article presents a viable happy medium, let the government crack down on the hackers that fuck over your account, but don't monitor actual game play, including the sales of items for non-virtual currency, somethings should just not be subject to income taxes. Raise the income taxes on the highest 10% to the levels before Reagan took office, and leave some areas sacred.
