I have not verified this personally, but a blog reports that Genus is back. ETA: It is true.  The region is swamped. 

We apparently are not using "post" in the same way, but the point is... why are you hassling me about passing along this news and nitpicking my words? Is what I said in this thread not as relevant as,

Where does it say that Linden Lab doesn't know that? The article says that "we" (the readers) and "they" (Genus) don't know; I doubt that Linden Lab would have done anything without a name.

Ahh that makes sense I read "they" as Linden Lab, but it makes much more sense to refer to Genus.

Why bother "finding" out who is behind it? Just move on..  They are back up put your pitchforks away.

 

I don’t like the head, from what I have been able to do with it so far, but…

I will not put my pitchfork away, for someone to be able to just put another company out of business, even for a short time, for no reason at all and have no repercussions is pretty sad. I will not do business with Genus but I will support them being in business. I look at this as a total fail on the part of LL.

You have no idea who or what filed the dispute. There is nothing you can do with your pitchfork.  LL does not generally post about their decisions on reports so.... who are you going to poke that thing at?

I got a complaint again. I need to close everything again. I'm going to court and I want to settle this. I think it will take time

Go to court, see about filing for damages as it is potentially DMCA abuse.

Yeah, saw the notice and for some reason I cannot post in group chat. It keeps timing out on me

I imagine there are 100,000 people in there screaming about it, causing chat to lag out. (I keep the chat closed so can't say for sure.)

Yes. Its the creator I feel for. Ultimately, we arent the victims, but a pattern looks like its emerging - DMCA, do nothing for 10 days, Genus allowed to return for a few days, another DMCA just to rain on the parade again, do nothing (again) for (another) 10 days, Genus allowed to return for a few days before....rinse, repeat.

Hard to see this ending. Eventually, even the sanest among us will be dusting off their pitchfork if someone cant/wont step in to put an end to the nonsense.

That'd been happening to me a lot too, only a few of my messages ever get through, which is annoying when you're trying to help someone >_<

Was happy they were finally back, and hopefully they can run back to "normal" and now hit again? Wonder who is out to get them like that..? Hopefully this all resolves :(

This is very disappointing.  Seems really malicious. Just look at  how busy the Genus shop was when they re-opened!  Genus is so loved because they are one of the few SL companies now, that don't seem to be all about the money.  This is so unfair. I hear Genus are going to see this out in court now, so hopefully this can be stopped. I hope they get compensation for this, because they have lost a lot of business over the past few months due to the first complaint. Whoever complained is a complete loser. I hope Genus win their case.

Such determined disruption does make me wonder if the perpetrator was once in close orbit to the creator. I know we shouldn't speculate, but I try to put myself in the mindset of who would want to do this and why. Obviously the bottom line is to undermine the business, but the why is harder to understand.

If that was me, I would take it all the way through the courts, and end it there in public.

Can we use restraint and not create a new post "Genus is Gone Again!" when it happens? 

I think that is exactly what I did.
