It was a virtual chat room running on Aapo's Fuse technology. It launched in August 2000 on the ISP's web portal.
After having been contracted to design a virtual game and chat called Lumisota (Snow Wars) for a Finnish internet service provider, they were contracted for another project. Aapo, Sampo and Dee Edwards, an entrepreneur from the UK, wanted to create an international business based on the virtual hotel concept, drafting a plan in Autumn 2000, and raised finance.
The District Court heard the man used online chat sites in 2012 to communicate with girls aged 12 to 16 in Germany and the United Kingdom.
It heard he initiated sexual conversations with the underage girls, asked them to send him pictures of themselves and activated a web cam to show them his genitals.
Judge Mc Intyre imposed a jail sentence of four years with a non-parole period of two years.
She said it was a difficult balancing act to decide whether to suspend the sentence, but concluded the man's obvious remorse and willingness to rehabilitate made him suitable for immediate release.
The service began in 2000 and has expanded to include nine online communities (or "hotels"), with users in over 150 countries.
As of August 2012, over 273 million avatars have been registered with an average 5 million unique visitors monthly.
She also said she "could not overlook" a two-year delay in charging him with the offences, which caused her concern.
