Virtual theft – real punishment?

Virtual theft and virtual fraud appear to be widely spread among the online and gaming community.
Authorities in the Nethderlands and in the USA have thus undertaken proceedings against wrongdoers.

What is the moral of the story?
Owing to the lower threshold required, one is likelier to conduct an offense online. But beware of what you do, because you can get an offline punishment!
