Stolen SL content in OpenSim

I was on an OS grid today, and in their shopping area was a lot of stuff that looks like it was stolen from Second Life:

- The Maitreya body, rebranded as Athena
- The Slink male body, rebranded as Adonis
- Clothing I recognized from Blueberry
- Hair that I recognized from Truth and Argrace
- Plenty of other content that I'm guessing was also stolen, but I couldn't say from whom.

I took lots of pictures and made note of where I found the items and who the supposed creator was. I was planning to pass the info on to the Second Life creators, but is there anything they could do about it?

Probably not really honestly. Anyone can add a region to OS Grid and it's likely that all of that stuff is elsewhere in other regions.

Their creations have been STOLEN, not just dropped off on the grids. Sheesh.

LOL, there's really not even any way of knowing whether the "Athena" body's seller actually stole it from Maitreya, or stole it from someone else in OS who stole it from Maitreya and called it something else. It's copyturtles all the way down.

If elements of the server code itself were "heavily inspired" by SL, of course the content in it's world will be, too.

the number of people i've met on opensim grids who say something along the lines of "i bought these things in sl so i am allowed to import my inventory to opensim, because i paid for it." does nobody understand the idea of a limited licence to use something?

I find that certain parts of the world are the ones whom say or do this. I guess it might be a cultural thing in all honesty or some kind of consumer entitlement that they think applies to even virtual goods.

It kind of reminds me of the argument that piracy isn't a crime because you are making a copy and not taking the actual original (like with say, an apple).

On the other hand, I can see where this argument of "I bought it once" can come in, especially using say, a movie as an example. I bought the VHO, I bought the DVD, I bought the Blue Ray, now you want to charge me again for the digital version, enough is enough." Though I doubt a lot of folks bought something twice like that in SL/OS.
