The Supreme Court acquitted two defendants in a case related to the legality of using cash to buy and sell cyber money for online games.
The court conditioned its ruling on the fact that the cyber money was earned through skill, not luck.
Supreme Court Justice Min Il-young ruled in favor of the suspects surnamed Kim and Lee.
The two allegedly purchased “Aden,” cyber money in an online multiplayer role-playing game “Lineage,” worth 234 million won ($207,558), which was lower than market price, through game item-trading Web sites.
