The Virtual Worlds 2007 conference in San Jose October 10-11 (VB is one of Virtual Worlds 2007′s media partners) just announced a late-addition session entitled Combating IP Theft in Virtual Worlds: A look at EROS, LLC’s Landmark Avatar Lawsuit, in the Entertainment and Marketing track. Eros’ CEO, Kevin Alderman (‘Stroker Serpentine’ in Second Life) is presenting the case study.
Regular VB readers will already be familar with the progress of Eros v. John Doe, but it should be interesting to see what Alderman himself has to say from the perspective of a content creator who is alleging infringement.
