I’ve received a press release from the SL Bar Association SLBA) announcing that Agenda Faromet, who in the physical world is an attorney specialising in privacy and internet law operating out of San Francisco, will be discussing the July 16th, 2014, changes to Section 2.3 of Linden Lab’s Terms of Service and also the recent changes to the Lab’s Skill Gaming policy.
The press release reads in part:
Linden Lab has recently announced changes to the Terms of Service associated with Second Life. This change comes almost a year after the major controversy that erupted last year over a substantial change in section 2.3 of the agreement with users of Second Life, related to the license claimed by Linden Lab in works created by creators in-world. Please join us for a lively discussion of the actual language changes from the prior terms of service. Agenda will also discuss other changes implemented by Linden Lab, including the gaming policy.
The discussion is set to take place in the SLBA courtroom, starting at 10:00 SLT on August 2nd.
I hope to be able to attend the meeting and provide a transcript through this blog.
