Online gamer murdered over cyber-sword sale

A Shanghai online gamer murdered a competitor by stabbing him to death because he had sold his friends cyber-sword.

41-year-old Qiu Chengwei, stabbed competitor Zhu Caoyuan repeatedly in the chest after he was told Zhu had sold his "dragon sabre".

A "dragon sabre" is one of the assets you can win in the popular online game Legend of Mir 3. Legend of Mir 3 features heroes and villains, sorcerers and warriors, who often have huge swords to fight with.

Qiu and a friend jointly won their weapon last February. They lent it to Zhu, who in turn sold it for $1129, without telling his friends.

Qui reported Zhu to the police, but was told the virtual weapon was not real property protected by law.

The court was told: "Zhu promised to hand over the cash but an angry Qui lost patience and attacked Zhu at his home, stabbing him in the left chest with great force and killing him."

This is not the first time a gamer seeks justice through the courts over stolen weapons and credits.

"The armour and swords in games should be deemed as private property as players have to spend money and time for them," Wang Zongyu, an associate law professor at Beijing's Renmin University of China said.
