THIS JUST IN! Linden Labs Appears To Have Upped Their Game with Respect to Music Copyright Infringement.


LL adheres to the DMCA (Digital Millennium Copyright Act) and have begun sending representatives out to clubs in SL looking for DJ's that appear to be playing stolen music (napster, youtube etc.)

They are looking specifically for DJ's that are playing OBVIOUSLY stolen music.

We all like being able to fulfill requests, but don't put both yourself and the club at risk.  If you don't know how to change the title of a track, ask for Help. It's not hard to do, so stop being lazy and clean up your tracks!  If all else fails, DON'T PLAY THE TRACK!!

If an infringement violation is filed against any one DJ, both the DJ and the owner(s) of the stream allowing the music to be played are subject to a $500.00 USD fine.  Accounts that are unable to cover the cost of the fine are simply frozen until they can.

If you download music, please ensure that it is LEGAL, or at the very least, ensure that tracks are LABELED CORRECTLY.  (i.e. no "with lyrics")

DJ's that are currently including illegal/mislabeled tracks are now putting both the RUBBER ROOM and themselves at risk.  Therefore, we cannot afford to send out warnings to individual staff members, but will instead immediately remove offenders from staff.  It's nothing personal.

Harsh, but there's not much else that we can do.

The DMCA and How it Works- Mikile Vinciolo Reporting…

The DMCA (Digital Millennium Copyright Act) is a law that is implemented from two 1996 treaties signed into effect by the infamous and great President Clinton, on Oct. 28, 1998. The DMCA is comprised of two WIPO (World Intellectual Property Organization) treaties.

The DMCA treaty is divvied into five titles that sets forth coverage for various forms of intellectual copyrighting coverage, like title II clause that limits the liability of online service providers in the event of copyright infringement.

The DMCA affects individuals that have utilized devices and/or services to infringe upon copyrighted material. Copybotting is a form of device that encroaches on the content creators copyrights. Utilizing cheat codes to acquire linden dollars and other services and products of service is also encroachment and violation, protecting the content creator's work.
