Today (Friday, February 15) at 3:00 PM SLT (Pacific) attorney Frank Taney, will hold an in-world discussion of intellectual property rights in Second Life. Taney represented plaintiffs in two separate real-life lawsuits stemming from virtual world activity last year.
From the announcement at SLOG:
Frank Taney is a partner at the law firm of Buchanan, Ingersoll & Rooney, and has a lot of experience with intellectual property in virtual worlds, especially Second Life. He has represented the plaintiffs in the two highest profile Second Life intellectual property lawsuits, spoken on numerous panels, and continues to share his vast wealth of knowledge with the Second Life community. We will cover various topics including an overview of the Second Life Terms of Service, how to properly file a DMCA take down request, and much more.
The event will take place in the Hawthorne sim at (31/106/501). Here is a SLURL. This looks like a great opportunity for Second Life business owners to learn about intellectual property issues in the virtual world.
