  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
