Question

  • 0

Two basic observations .... Well, no... three, actually..

First, we are all SL residents, like you.  Lindens never come to this resident-to-resident Answers area, and none of us have any authority to do anything about this situation.

Second, neither do you.  If there are indeed items being used in violation of intellectual property rights, the only person who has any legal standing to complain is their creator.  That's a federal law, the Digital Millenium Copyright Act (DMCA).    Under that law, Linden Lab, as the service provider, is required to remove objects that are allegedly in violation, but only if the creator has filed a proper complaint.  Nobody else can file in place of the creator.

Third, a landowner always has the right to eject or ban anyone from his/her land, no questions asked and no explanation required.  See the TOS, section 4.8: "You may permit or deny other users to access your Virtual Land on terms determined by you."  It doesn't make any difference what else the landowner may have done.  He has every right to force you to leave, and you have no recourse.
