This does concern me whenever we post screen shots from SL. If something ever comes of it, it could seriously stifle creativity in and about the SL community.

I really, really hope content creators can view the spirit of things like pictures and machinima and not be issuing takedowns if people aren't using their work to take credit for it, but rather to enhance a scene.

A little publicity goes a long way, most people would love to have their stuff pop up in a machinima or picture on flickr. The short sighted people, however, won't.

Needless to say, I'm a little disillusioned with content creators who spend more time protesting that everyone is ripping them off than actually creating things.

Copyright on avatars??

How about copyrights for avatars on screenshots??
I have an expo going on in SL showing Na'vi in SL, portraits of blue SL Na'vi avatars in RolePlay sims after the movie Avatar. I wanted to sell these photo's for 100 L$ ($0,30) and I didn't ask the portrayed avatars for their permission. For now I just show and not sell the photo's because I'm not sure about the copyright issues. Some Na'vi got a bit upset thinking I would make a profit by selling their image. What is legal / illegal concerning the copyrights in this case?? http://slurl.com/secondlife/Oahu/49/99/24 Gallery Fermate
