MORE EDITS: Video is up! And we have a pdf of my slides: SL ToS Presentation. Enjoy! Also, Inara Pey worked her ass off to create some excellent transcripts of the event, and the UCCSL is working on translating those into a few languages when possible.
Please join me (as my alt, Agenda Faromet), Tim Faith, and VIPO’s Juris Amat — all of us IP attorneys in real life — as we discuss the latest changes to Second Life’s Terms of Service. We’ll take a close, detailed look at exactly what the controversial section of the new ToS means, how it affects content creators (and regular users), what changed from the old terms, and why people are so upset. More importantly, we’ll answer your questions and discuss how the Terms of Service affects your rights now and in the future.
This event will be Saturday, October 19 at 10 am SLT at the UCCSL’s Rose Theatre Opera House. This is a new location that can support more avatars. We changed locations due to the high demand for this event. A few people have offered to record the event for us (but if you’re willing / able to record, please do!), and we hope we will also be able to reprise the panel on a second date if the demand is high enough.
Note: if we do get a good recording, we would really like to get a transcript for the hearing impaired. If you are willing to transcribe a recording for us, please contact Agenda Faromet after the panel is over. Thank you!
