Bizarre news from the world of EverQuest: the same company that provides background information like this banned one of its players for writing distasteful stories set in the game on a third party message board. Worse, their general counsel defended their decision based on copyright law. The interesting aspect of this story is that the company is using their leverage over players’ ability to participate in the game to control their speech outside the game. Seems like a slippery slope to me. I hope it becomes the PR nightmare to end all PR nightmares.
