This makes your hair stand up more!

Why would a bona-fide Machinima use case want to deploy a predatory vendor, like Linden Lab Second Life TOS 2.3?

#SecondLife TOS 2.3 violates Berne Convention for Protection of Literary+Artistic Works

You keep making that assertion, but can you cite an example of Linden Lab ever using its "predatory" TOS to go after a machinima creator? Dozens of for-profit companies have used SL machinima in their IP, including several feature films and TV shows, not to mention thousands of indie content creators who have monetized SL machinima through YouTube. If Linden Lab is "predatory" with its TOS, how come the company has never gone after any of them?

Linden Lab should put their money where their mouth is, and keep up with competitive comparisons.

You didn't answer my questions, and instead, put up a bunch of irrelevant links. So once again:
