  1. I want some of whatever it is that you are smoking. Recent? Second Life just celebrated its 16th Birthday. Which means it was created in 2003. 2019 - 16 = 2003 Tilia appears to have been created around 2 years ago. 2019 - 2017 = 2 This means that Second Life / Linden Labs has been in existence in the US for at least 14 years before Tilia was created. Even Google Maps Street view shows that they have had the same office location in San Francisco as far back as 2009 and probably before that too. A location that has existed for at least 10 years is in no way more recent
  2. Some Updates to The Terms of Service Entry posted by Linden Lab · July 11, 2017 We have added references to our wholly-owned subsidiaries, Tilia Inc. and Tilia Branch UK Ltd., which will be handling payment services on our behalf under certain circumstances.
  3. The problem with filing a DMCA against the entire store, or person, and not the item, is that the creator has to legally claim ownership of the item itself. This is in the copyright laws. However, I do not recall seeing anything in the law that says a DMCA must be filed for each item, individually, against the same seller. So if a user is selling 5 items from the same creator, that creator can include all 5 items in one DMCA. It would behoove creators to go through the sellers entire store to see if any more of their items are being sold by the user, and then include all items in
  4. Sorry. By templates I mean those items that are created and designed to be used in a graphics program for creating clothing, etc., like in Gimp or Photoshop.
  5. As a creator I have full control over who can and cannot sell content based on my template. I am not sure why you seem to think that creators don't have control. If I see someone selling my creations and I know they didn't pay for it, I file a DMCA. Can we control someone passing a template to another user, no, but we can control who is allowed to sell those meshes, or use those meshes to create items. You seem to believe that putting restrictions on templates will stop the problem, but it wont. Templates that are meant to be used in a graphics program can be altered and export
  6. Sorry, no. You do not get to tell creators how they can do business just because there are abuses by some people. If I want to create and sell templates full perm for others to use, then that is my right.
  7. Even if Linden Lab streamlined the process more, or hired dozens more people to address the reports, it is not up to them to protect the creator. As others have pointed out, who is right and who is wrong? If 3 people buy a template and only change the colors, the templates would match each others stuff. So which one would be the real creator? Do you really want a company trying to decide who is the rightful creator or not? If you read up on DMCA it is all legal stuff and the rightful, legal, creator has to file the DMCA. Linden Lab does not have the right to do that. Which mean
  8. Maybe there should be a Reporting Party Event set up. Get as many people together and just spend 15 or 30 minutes flagging as much stuff on the marketplace as possible in that time to see if maybe linden will get the hint that more needs to be done?
  9. Right. which is why I am asking if they shouldn't just remove all of those lower categories. This way people wont get in trouble when it seems that more than 75% of the sellers don't even bother to put their items into the correct ones!
  10. Any demo that costs more than 1L you should avoid. The seller is just scamming at that point trying to get money from people they know most likely wont buy the full item.
  11. Should Linden remove all of the lower categories on the marketplace? It seems that since so many sellers cannot be bothered, or are too lazy, to put their items in the correct categories that Linden should just get rid of all of them except the main ones, like Home and Garden, Vehicles, Apparel, Animals, etc. If you look at the Marketplace and set your options to see 96 items, sorted newest first, I bet you will find that close to 80 of the items have some issue with them. Wrong category, not set to moderate or adult, or keyword spam. 80 out of 96, on average, means that there is ei
  12. You should be able to submit a case to LL and ask them nicely if they can help you by pulling up the order number for you. Let them know you are trying to locate the order number itself and would like help. Provide them with the sellers name and the item name. They should be able to get that information for you.
  13. Once you drag the item to the marketplace widow, right click on the folder and pick whatever it says to create the listing for your item. You shouldn't have to go to the website to make the thing acttive
  14. Unless you are the person who created the item,or you are an authorized reseller who buys the items direcetly from the person who created the items, then yes, the items are used. You got the item, you do not want it, you are re-selling it. Gatcha items are no different from other No copy, Transfer items that are being sold and they should be placed either in the right category, or the used items category. If you do not want to buy them, then don't, but demanding that they be segregated from the rest of the items that are being sold is just wrong. If you see an item that isn't correct, li

They (LL) really need to police the Marketplace better. If you log in and see copyrighted or trademarked items then the creators of said items are being lazy by not reporting the items. It is not up to LL to police the marketplace, or anywhere else for that matter, for copyrighted content. LL most definitely should police the MP for Copyright protected goods. They take a cut of each and every sale,
