While Palmer Luckey and Peter Thiel continue their support for Trump, Linden Lab and other major players in the tech industry haven't forgotten about Trump's ongoing mission to ban Muslim immigrants and refugees from America, joining an amicus brief against the second version of the ban with 160 tech companies signed:
In a brief filed in the U.S. District Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit, a host of Silicon Valley heavyweights lambasted Trump’s new order — his second attempt, after a judge blocked his first one — and stressed it would inflict “substantial harm on U.S. companies, their employees, and the entire economy”... The brief — filed today by a total 162 tech firms, including Uber, SpaceX, Spotify and Twitter — represents the Valley’s latest legal salvo against Trump’s immigration policies.
The brief is posted at the bottom of this Recode post here. Notably, Linden Research, Inc. is the only virtual world/VR-focused company on the list, with just Bungie, Electronic Arts, and Zynga among the computer/mobile/videogame industry signees.
(And not counting giant tech squids like Facebook, Google, Microsoft, etc. who have game and VR arms among their tentacles.)
