Oh it has been settled now? Geez... that took quite a while to get anything done with DMCA.

Excuse LL and the courts for taking some effort to, y'know, make sure it was valid and not some kangaroo case aimed at shutting down a legitimate business?

But seriously, this is one of the main problems of using current legal processes on metaverses - it never happens as fast as people in the world want it to happen.

Going by the news articles I'm reading today, Robert is far from being the loser here.
No fines. No jail time. Just a heavily padded slap on the wrist with him saying he won't copy or use any of the content made by Eros LLC.

Big ****ing deal. There are how many other designers for the stupid prick to steal from?
Naturaly the news media is playing up his sob story side of things. "I wasn't out to do a huge market thing. I was doing it for a little bit of money."
Let's gear that up with the same philosophy but a different situation:
"I wasn't drinking and driving every night of the month, only on the first Friday of every month"
"I wasn't reselling thousands of copies of Microsoft Vista, I was only selling a couple to make some money"
"I wasn't out to kill an entire race like Hitler was, I was just killing a couple people who I was annoyed with."

Pathetic, useless, waste of oxygen. Guaranteed to return in one way or another and continue to make a living stealing and reselling other peoples work.

The only good news to come out of this is that these little pricks will learn the hard way that you *can* be tracked down in RL.
