Would a peacful, non-distruptive protest at the OOC landing point of a sim (to protest changes in the sim's policies) be considered griefing?  Activites would be limited to holding signs and perhaps handing out notecards.

 

Yes, in Second Life, it would be considered griefing.  Not only would you and your co-protesters be banned from the sim, but you run the risk of a suspension from Second Life.

Sim owners reserve the right to change policies at their will and on any whim. 

Best to just walk away and find another sim to hang out.

Handing out unsollicitated NCs or even holding signs will very certainly be considered as griefing by the sim owners and may end up with a ban. Remember a private sim's owner apply THEIR rules, whether you like them or not. If you (and other residents) wish to protest against the sim's policies change, you'll probably have more chances to be listened by sending notecards to the owner (and even a global one signed by all the protesting residents), the first step to take is to SPEAK with the landlords.

I assume from what you said that there was a change to the covenant. If this change is a drastic one compared to the covenant you agreed upon renting/purchasing land on that sim. If there is no way you can sort that out by discussing, I am afraid your only option will be to leave the sim. Submitting a ticket or filing an AR would be useless as LL does not get involved into resident-to-resident issues.

Linden Lab might not consider it griefing, in the sense that they would refrain from handing out suspensions.

But...

Distributing notecards to passersby is considered spam, and that IS a reportable offense under the Terms of Service.

And...

Whether LL takes any action or not, the sim owners are almost certain to object.  Remember, he who owns the land, makes the rules.  You and your friends are very likely to find yourselves ejected, banned, and muted in very short order.
