ToS changes: a user-led legal panel discussion announced

ToS-Legal-Meeting

Venue change: This meeting will now take place at the Rose Theatre, Angel Manor.

Following the concerns raised over the 15th august changes to Linden Lab’s Terms of Service (ToS), and specifically Section 2.3 therein realting to rights granted to Linden Lab in respect of user-generated content uploaded to their platforms, products, and services, a panel of real-life legal experts is to meet in open forum to discuss the changes, and concerns held by creators within Second Life.

The panel has been organised by Vaki Zenovka, who is a real-life attorney, who announced the meeting on her blog on Tuesday October 15th thus:

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.

The meeting is schedule for 10:00 SLT, and will take place at the Justitia Virtual Legal Resource Village  Rose Theatre, Angel Manor. The meeting may be recorded, and if demand is sufficient, a second session may be held in the future.

  1. Oh this is really awesome! This should be a wonderful presentation. I also wonder if only US lawyers will be at the panel, and, of course, if any Linden will bother to attend it as well…

    Maybe we should sue LL afterwards 🙂 Heh.

    Unquote!
    Perhaps this will allow a better understanding why LL changed the Tos and will not go back!
    And eases the fears of many! Or maybe not!
