I was wondering if US Internal Revenue Service will invlove itself or has been involved already with this so called online assets of gamers. I know it has been discussed few years ago but I’m not aware of any Law about this virtual asset. Probably in the future we might see more forum about this matter and probably get implemented. You can also hop in to this site for reference. IRS Representation
For country like the Philippines I don’t think it will happen soon although we got huge gamers in the country but because our system and law are not yet that solid in terms of virtual assets. I don’t even think our law makers are aware of this.
My personal stand in this matter is that its important that gamers should have some sort of protection for their virtual game asset in which game publishers should not allowed to just shutdown any games without going into proper forum.
