This is similiar to linking to free copies Metallica songs on the RIAA entry on Wikipedia.

This post of yours Tateru, finally got me thinking enough to make one of my own Porn, Ice Cream, and Stolen Virtual Stuff. Thanks for the push.

Wow, I was surfing around a little bit and it's scary to see how easy it has become to steal scripts from any object at this point. I always felt pretty good about scripting in Second Life since that was one thing people couldn't copy but ... I guess that was then and this is now. Not good, not good at all!

Pretty horrible. Not really Linden's fault that people realize the best way to disperse stolen goods is at one of the largest annual events of course - it's just common sense.

all of this theft was done using Neil life, at least that is my guess. LL only slowed down neil the last time he was caught.

I have been doing a lot of research into this topic..... my wife is a content creator and i have been trying to find ways to fight this

Is it me or does Second Life only seem to get mentioned around here in connection to it's current scandal/controversy?

I'm waiting and waiting for LL's promised on-line DMCA filing system. It takes me an hour every time I have to file one, and I've filed several. LL reacts fast to the filings, but they are a swift pain in the fundament.

I've never heard anyone describe the Lab's response to DMCA filings as swift before, quite honestly.

Actually, DMCA notices *can* be filed online, and Linden Lab must accept and process them (as the DMCA requires them to) if the notices are submitted correctly (they're allowed to ignore incorrectly submitted notices).

We're considering a short how-to on that.

I get a removal within 48 hours of faxing the DMCA, so I'm happy with the response times. But the process! Ugh!
