No, seriously. You have to be exceptionally stupid to believe that everything in SL is made by GIGANTIC BIG SCARY MEGACORPS. In fact, the megacorps are leaving SL because SL is a gigantic money sinkhole.
I sell land. I'm unemployed. The land proceeds help a friend of mine who is having financial trouble because of copybotting morons like you who think they're entitled to everything stealing stuff that she's spent years working on just so she can pay her fucking bills.
Wake up, get a reality check.
Like Fred said, I didnt work 16 hours a day for 3 years to build up a business that supports me in real life so that some criminal can come along and collect all of the money I worked for!
Check out this real-time thieves list of people who have obtained stolen copies of my products in the last few weeks. Each and every one of them is costing me a sale, AND bandwidth on my server as their stolen products interface with my webservers.
So not only has neil costed me sales, but he is increasing my running costs too. I'm earning less in sales, and paying out my own money to maintain a service (server) for people who never paid me. Quantum Products - The New Standard
I'm just one person working long hours in the hope of making enough money to pay the rent and buy food next week. I suspect I am no different to any other creater who started out from scratch.
Thanks for the support Fred XO
