One Voice for Gala Phoenix
As you know, LL shut down Gala Phoenix well known skin store "Curio skins" because of a DMCA complaint Hush made. That's a long story short, you can find Gala's official statement at Curio's blog.
Right now there's a fundraiser for Gala Phoenix running, to help her cover the court costs. Full info as follows:
Curio’s Gala Phoenix is currently in the midst of legal issues which have resulted in her content being removed from the grid, pending the outcome of her legal battle. The Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) process in Second Life requires that when there is legal action taken against your content, Linden Lab will remove it from the grid until a ruling is made. Gala’s fellow content creators have come together to host a fundraiser to help with the enormous amount of legal fees she will have to bare in order to fight her case.
The fundraiser will be held from 9th-22th July.
Confirmed participants so far are: Truth, League, GoS, Belleza, Glam Affair, Adam and Eve, SLink, One Bad Pixel, Exile, HoD, Laqroki, Aura, Bare Rose, SAKIDE, Zibska, Al Vulo and many others who will offer their items as either 50% or 100% donations. (full list of participants incl. LMs can be found here: http://salomesays.com/blog/one-voice-directory/ - thanks for that!)
The event is not only to help Gala Phoenix, but to also take a stand for the community of content creators, for many of whom SL is their main source of income. This could happen to any one of us, and it’s necessary that we stand up and fight back to ensure that it doesn't.
