Virtual child abuse?

Linden Labs urges caution over the great Second Life child-abuse scandal:

"On Thursday May 3, we were contacted by German television network, ARD, which had captured images of two avatars, one that resembled an adult male and another that resembled a child, engaged in depicted sexual conduct. Our investigations revealed the users behind these avatars to be a 54-year-old man and a 27-year-old woman. Both were immediately banned from Second Life."

Er? Is it against the rules to have an under-age avatar, or to use that avatar to have consensual virtual sex with another, past-it looking avatar?
