Hello, Content Creators of Second Life!
It has been a while since we have had any new DMCA reporting news, but we are pleased to announce that reporting has never been easier.
We hope everyone’s aware of the Intellectual Property Online Webform, which has replaced the prior submission method by fax. If needed, you can still send us snail mail.
Found someone violating your intellectual property?
Head over to www.lindenlab.com and follow this link to submit your DMCA notification: https://www.lindenlab.com/legal/intellectual-property-infringement-notification-policy.
Please note that only the authorized rights holder may submit a notice of copyright infringement.
Section 17 U.S.C.§ 512(f) of the DMCA states that you may be liable for any damages, including costs and attorney’s fees incurred by us or our users if you knowingly materially misrepresent that material or activity is infringing.
We also implore Marketplace store owners to make sure that all of their listings are in compliance with the Marketplace Guidelines https://marketplace.secondlife.com/listing_guidelines#branding-guidelines
As always, we welcome your feedback and you may send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We appreciate your interest and support of the Second Life environment.
The Intellectual Property Team at Linden Lab
