If tomorrow, OTM decides to shut down all the servers and move on to better pastures, everybody will lose all their accounts and all the items and plat they bought with real money, and OTM is under no obligation to compensate for this because... Yup, you guessed it, you never owned any of it to begin with.
This not completely correct. If you pay money for a service and it is not provided you can in most countries sue in civil court. This would apply to virtual services. What would be awarded and if it would be worth the cost is another matter.
Because something is virtual does not mean the provider has no legal obligations.
And of course if the company shut down all bets are off though I imagine it would be possible for players to apply to be creditors in a bankruptcy.
