you may want to re-think that marketplace link. It's not Astralia's store, it's a gacha reseller, and while it seems to be an honest one, Marketplace is full of gacha copybotters and it's difficult to know who is honest.

It'd be better to slurl to Astralia's mainstore: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Astralia/108/116/38

Good catch, thanks much -- updated!

Wuld also like to know if this is real or not sounds kinda fishy! i am not seeing such a big company like that coming into Second Life for a couple of cents on each item, also if this is licensed to Astralia then resell gacha items by others should not be allowed since they dont own any copyrights or authorization

Agreeing with natalia- this seems more like a company like LL would license for Sansar or really perfect for Blocksworld- not someone making a few hundred bucks a week on the MP in SL

"i am not seeing such a big company like that coming into Second Life for a couple of cents on each item"

Yes, but that's putting the relationship backwards. It probably would never occur to Sanrio to "come into SL", but Sanrio itself doesn't make much stuff -- it is, on the other hand, the world's 12th largest licensor. So rather an Sanrio coming into SL, what's more likely is an SL creator reaching out to Sanrio to obtain a non-exclusive license, something Sanrio loves to give out, even to "micro" markets (they're happy to license to small Etsy creators, too, for example). Which doesn't mean this is legit, but it's not necessarily all that fishy, either.

I believe this, just because years ago I had made Hello Kitty plush and sanrio immediately served me with a violation of copyright notice, so sanrio is paying attention to Second Life 😊
This is giving me ideas! 💖😃 I should try contacting them to get a license to sell the stuff I made too!!! 😃😃😃

Looked into this abit. Astralia is indeed a registered company, though registered as Astralia Accessories.

I believe as far as licensing, it's not that she pays a percentage per-sale, but rather purchased a license for a period of time to use the characters.
