"He also points out that Linden Lab 'did not include SL as a claimed mark on its website until March 24, 2008, six days after the SLART mark was issued its Certificate of Registration'."

Ah, so now we know for certain what triggered the whole trademark kerfuffle. Reactive much, LL?

Just wanted to point out that Minsky, in a response to a comment I made on Virtually Blind, wrote a followup on his blog....

Beyond going into lost-cause rally trying to get people on his side to squash any contrary opinons....
On his blog Minsky used my trademark, "Doubledown Tandino", on his blog without permission. The trademark "Doubledown Tandino" has been registered by me and in use since March 2006.

Stop using my trademark on your blog Minsky!

Doubledown,

1. Can you show proof of trademark registration? 2. The use of a term in citation or "in passim" is not an infringement. If it were, there could be no discussion, as the use of Richard's name in your posting would equally constitute an infringement.

No harm, no foul.

isn't there a section on the TOS that restricts things like where someone must file a suit against LL and such? hasn't Minsky clicked on "I agree" ever since the TOS started mentioning those things? or this is all being done following the TOS and is still being effective at affecting LL?

This is out of the scope of the TOS. This is all about the Lanham Act (title 15, chapter 22 of the United States Code) -- which is not an item covered (or coverable) by the Second Life Terms of Service.

ok, I thought the TOS imposed restrictions on all the ways someone might sue LL
