Gamers make real money on virtual items, court says OK

SEOUL, Jan. 14 (Yonhap) -- For over a year, Lee Sang-eun roamed a medieval fantasy world in an online role-playing game, Lineage. But the 30-year-old life insurance consultant found the game was taking too much time from his real-world life. So he found another way to play -- using cyber game items he buys with real money -- instantly enhancing his game without having to actually improve his skills.
