So, I know we have ways to flag individual listings for violatons, but how do you do it when it's an entire store, every single listing has the same violations?

brew up a pot of coffee and start flagging items..

Here's two, probably the same person:

https://marketplace.secondlife.com/stores/182908
https://marketplace.secondlife.com/stores/182953

That's just unetical, immoral, and theft, and there's no way to 'correctly' flag the items as it doesn't infringe on MY intellectual property rights. Besides, it's as though LL doesn't really care, anyway. These items have been around for some time now. So sad...

Definetly IP violations.  The best thing to do is report the store to the original creators. 

Not only the best things, the only thing to do. IP violations are different from other TOS violations in that only the owner of the IP rights can file a complaint. That makes perfect sense because they are the only ones who know for sure whether the suspect has permission to use their brand or not. The expections there are some big RL corporations who have made it absolutely clear that they don't allow their brand names or products to be used in Second Life in any form or by anybody.

 

As to the original question, Linden Lab recommends you file an abuse report. You can also open a support case explaining the whole situation.

You will find that in many cases.

I believe it is due to rampant seller corruption and LL at this time may simply be unable to process the claims.

You don't have to guess, you can read LL policy. They MUST do a DMCA takedown, they don't have a choice, legally. But they do not have to take down an entire store or ban an account. They have said they will do so for repeated reports but do not define repeated.

Gonna need a huge pot of coffee, and some bandages to keep the fingers from bleeding from all the clicking that is currently needed on the SLMP in regards to all of that.

I just had some odd feeling about all the stuff I just bought over the week in templates and stuff, even just a few minutes ago and realized.. something was wrong.

 

So, I went researching and ran across this thread. Those stores in the link is no longer there but there except the first one, but there is a store called, #GACHA-MESH FULL PERM-LIMITED STORY# at https://marketplace.secondlife.com/stores/182956 and previously (because I went into order history to find an image of something I bought) it was another link that is no longer there and then it was https://marketplace.secondlife.com/stores/185158 by an avatar account that no longer exists.

Thinking over all this and now wondering if they copybotted everything, what do the customers do? I mean granted, I sent quite a bit, thinking it was all some legit maybe limited items store (because it's been something like this before or stores have done it themselves). If the DCMA kicks in and SL removes all the items from customers, the customers get nothing back for what they spent right? This would be a mess.
