I added an update to the Neil Life Viewer Review I wrote in early August. See; Warning – Neil Life Viewer
Today Massively is reporting that a number of those using the Neil Life Viewer for IP theft have been banned. See; Linden Lab rounds up and ejects a bunch of copyright infringers
Massively explains how those abusing IP rights were separated from those just running the viewer. Smart.
This effort from Linden Lab is a good move in the face of the current law suites pending regarding IP theft. (See Wired: Linden Lab Targeted in Second Life Sex-Code Lawsuit) When one considers that Second Life residents spend about US$50 million real life dollars per month an idea of the importance of the action is apparent.
