Linden Lab Gets Trademark for Second Life Credit Card

A recent post over at Massively reveals that virtual world technology company, Linden Lab, creators of the popular Second Life website, has been granted a trademark for their hand/eye logo to be used for a credit card.

Whether this Linden Lab credit card will only be used in virtual game play or real world situations is unknown but either way it's definitely raising eyebrows in the gaming world.

The trademark registration 3378449 states, "Online financial services, namely, offering a fictional-dollar-denominated credit card to charge online purchases".

Keep your eyes open for an official statement from Linden Lab.
