IN SEARCH OF COPYBOT'S VICTIMS
If you're a Resident who's been directly and substantially hurt by the appearance of CopyBot-- i.e., if it was used to replicate content you created without your permission, or if it was used to replicate content that you owned, in a way that its monetary or personal value was lessened-- I'd like to interview you. Send an IM to Hamlet Au, or e-mail me.
According to Linden Lab, as of last Thursday, only 50 Residents have filed CopyBot-related abuse reports. Over the last seven days (roughly the time spanning CopyBot's appearance and removal), 208,325 Residents have been in-world. So assuming all 50 abuse reports are valid, that would mean a fraction of 1% have officially claimed injury. But then, it's entirely possible many Residents have been hurt, but declined to press charges, as it were. But whether you filed an abuse report or not, I want to talk with you.
