Commercialism of Second Life

I’m talking alot about SL to people who haven’t been there yet… and there’s wonder as to who is using it and why… I knew there was commercialization in a big way, but these are two interesting examples of how far it is going in terms of moving RL experiences into SL: Reebok Brings Scarlett Johansson Line to SL and Calvin Klein Launches Scents in Second Life
