Hey! I'm the owner of a well known brand On SL where I sell Eye appliers. I recently discovered that copybotted have been copying my UUID textures somehow and sharing them on copybot forums. Since they're not copying actual mesh, but a texture that I have designed in photoshop, I'm not sure how to approach this problem? I don't want it to go by without consequences, because I want to fight copybotting as a problem in general. I hope you can advise me or at least give me your opinion. Thanks in advance!

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.
