Copybots and scammers

Recommended Posts

Please reply to this thread if you can answer the following questions evidenced from your own experience.

Where are copybotted items likely to turn up? links to sites outside SL would be welcome.

What can users do to make the scammers lives as miserable as possible? I am think here of ways to lure them in and consume as much of their time and other resources as we can.

Please don't reply to this thread if you have already been kind enough to reply to my earlier thread  -What can users do about copybots?

again... get rid of the idea of copybots ...

You have no proof at all it was botted, in contrary, a bot will leave as less traces as possible to keep undedected.

And you can do nothing against it., Nearly everything can be copied, except scripts, and the rigged part of mesh.

If you know how to use google you will find hundreds of links with info about real copybot.

 

where do copybotted items show up? not that difficult to guess ... not only in SL there are several copies of SL online.

Only the ones who have the same base can use sl items. But most won't allow use of it.

Only when you hve the rights on a object it will be subject to action when you file a DMCA, if you only are sidely involved nothing will happen.

In SL or one of its Clones.  Seriously, the quality of the content in SL is so poor it would be virtually worthless any where else.

Posting that kind of information here would probably get this thread deleted.  (See the CG and the TOS).

Could try doing something like Ebola Monkey Man.  But first you got to know who the perps are.  ;)

Really, I think irihapeti  summed things up quite well.

I have had my whole 4 sim store copied and distributed full perm many times. On other grids people have opened multi-sim stores filled with my products. Houses have been given out by store owners as hunt gifts or sold on the MP in SL. 

The only reason I am still in business is that there remain enough good honest people in SL to keep me in business. God bless them.
