Nearly every website out there has an online DMCA form to make it easy for people to file takedown notices when they find their IP is infringed upon... except Linden Lab. No, we have to use a fax machine. I don't own a fax machine. Yes there are free fax services online but they are limited to maybe 3 pages and I usually have more than one item to report at a time, as the infringers tend to make more than one thing from my art. So, I've had to purchase an online fax service JUST for this purpose. I have no other reason to fax anyone anything. In June I had a bunch to report and requested that an email address be made available to me for future reports as I tend to have them often and it's really impractical for me to fax them. I was emailed from their IP team with a request for additional info, and even sent a few DMCA notices to that email address that were successfully dealt with so I assumed all was good and I wouldn't have to go back to stone age communication methods. Until now, as the one I filed late last week is apparently not going to be accepted via email and I will have to fax them instead. Even though the reported items and my original work will all need to be viewed on a computer, because all evidence is in the form of urls. Even though they are completely capable of accepting it through email and have for me within the last couple months, I'm now being told that was 'just as a courtesy' and DMCA reports must be faxed. Seriously, why? Does anyone know? Kinda seems like it's set up to make it harder for people to report.
If you see something on the market, and it's not yours but you know its a copyrighted item, how do you report it? I looked under how to file a DMCA and there's nothing about reporting anything like this. https://marketplace.secondlife.com/p/Full-Perm-Animated-Wave-Dancing-Baby-Groot-Mesh/16277049 I know back in the day LL would have been all over this.
Greetings everyone, this is my first topic and i'm glad to be part of this helpful community. I'm fairly new on SL but i tried my best to understand how it works so far. My simple question is: Is it possible to Dmca an item that isn't sold anymore on the marketplace? I've seen many people going around using ripped mesh avatars from other videogames and i was wondering if the original creators (in this case the companies) could still file a dmca towards these sellers even tho they are not seeling the items itself anymore on their MP store. Thank you.
Hello, Several years ago myself and another resident created a 3D representation of a fan art illustration found on google. He built one base part and I built the rest. Last month I decided to have another crack at a more detailed version in mesh with many alterations. The person I had worked with in the past contacted me and not too pleasantly threatened to DMCA me and have me banned if I did not split any income with him. He claims he has ownership of the work because he built one small part of it 5 years ago and that I have copybotted him etc, even though the new one was built in Blender from scratch. Does he have any claims on it? If not, does Linden Labs investigate the work before they flag you and remove the content or do I have to take the hit and counter it with the proof? Sorry if this is a poorly executed description of my question, i'm a bit tired. Thank you for any help. =)
