Sorry for the weird disclaimers, but it’s necessary: THIS IS NOT AN ADVERTISEMENT FOR LEGAL SERVICES AND I AM NOT A LAWYER. Seriously. Read the whole thing.
Hey, SL Designers, Creators, Builders, Photographers, Machinimists, and Bloggers,
What legal issues are you curious about? Are there any laws that affect Second Life that you would like to know more about? Do you have questions about how the DMCA applies? Do you want to know about trademarked logos or copyrighted images and their use in creation? What are your legal concerns?
The SL Bar Association, an in-world association of attorneys, legal professionals, and affiliated avatars with an interest in virtual law, is considering putting on an in-world symposium on the legal issues of Second Life content creators. We would like to know from content creators (bloggers, you count too) what your biggest questions, concerns, and issues are. What would you like to know more about? What topics would you like a lawyer to explain to you? Also, would you be interested in attending a symposium like this?
You may respond either by commenting to this post, plurking at me, or by dropping me (Vaki Zenovka) a notecard in-world. I can’t promise that we can address every question, but we’ll certainly do what we can to cover major issues.
Please note: THIS IS NOT AN ADVERTISEMENT FOR LEGAL SERVICES. I am NOT a lawyer (yet). I am not offering to answer your questions directly and I cannot give you legal advice. If you have specific questions about specific incidents, I can’t answer them or tell you what to do. I’m only researching what sorts of legal issues SL creators are concerned about, in order to help put together this upcoming event. Got it? Good!
