Hello,i found some items on marketplace that i am interested to buy ,question is if thiese items are legal or not? ,presumed that if they are listed in marketplace sould be legal otherwise is a trap for those who use them.Thiese is just a few of them and they have one thing in common,like pay per play raffle,but marketplace is full of them.Is it legal or illegal to use them on your land? https://marketplace.secondlife.com/p/Raffle-Board-Raffle-Contest-Prize-Giver/2392504 https://marketplace.secondlife.com/p/Raffle-Board-V100-CopyBoxed/6309955 https://marketplace.secondlife.com/p/Raffle-Board/9221654 https://marketplace.secondlife.com/p/Laigon-Raffle-Board-boxed/2185915 https://marketplace.secondlife.com/p/Raffle-Board-Deluxe-no-copy-version-v2/1739870 https://marketplace.secondlife.com/p/RAFFLE-BOARD-V-11-2019/18302697
So, I saw a few claw machines in a store sim and the sign for them specifically said “play at your own risk”. That sort of phrasing suggests gambling, which is illegal on Second Life, if I recall correctly. The sign said it requires “some skill”. Not only that, but it also said that even if you manage to get a prize in the claw, it would sometimes “fall out”, in which you paid money and got nothing in return. So I’m curious of two things: 1. Is this described claw machine against TOS as a whole? 2. If not, is it against ToS to have these claw machines on a non-gaming-related sim? According to California law (the state that Second Life’s headquarters is based), claw machines are considered illegal: https://oag.ca.gov/sites/all/files/agweb/pdfs/gambling/ill_devices.pdf .
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.
