Clones Make Life Weirder in Second Life

This is a demo of cloning using the copybot that has been news in Second Life. SL was also shut down yesterday by a program that created copies of gold rings everywhere. This may be the beginning of the end (as the old fool says in the western film). How can an economy develop (need of scarcity) when everything can be endlessly copied for free (no scarcity). If Linden Labs are going to keep their promise to open source the code for SL wouldn't this be a good time to do it?
