Celebs sue when their faces are sold on unofficial merchandise, so that's probably a no on whether it's okay.

Also, that skin looks creepy as hell.


I imagine using a celebrity's name to promote your own stuff without permission would get you in legal trouble.


I think it’s unfair to sell them. D

Should not represent a celebrity without their consent, this may lead to a violation.


i doubt he even knows what sl is or cares

First thought was not to worry too much about Reeves but watch out for the dev company except - turns out its a CD Projekt offshoot and they have a bit of a non standard approach to say the least. Could be interesting to see how they react.

And Oi - on behalf of a section of 'the whole internet' this is the first I have heard of this thing =^^=

this machinima clearly shows where SL belongs in a technological hierarchy of realtime 3D media. the bottom.

"i doubt he even knows what sl is or cares"

Keanu was doing press tours for the final Matrix movies right as Second Life was starting to pick up press attention, so I bet reporters asked him stuff like if he thinks SL is the start of the IRL Matrix. In fact from 2004-2005 or so, the homepage of Second Life featured this quote about SL from Time Magazine: "Like The Matrix without the evil machines!"

@ "Like The Matrix without the evil machines!"

Were they really evil? or did they just understood humans can never be trusted as per the Animatrix Series!

Reminds me of this video the irony.

Humanity is doomed as they cannot see what they really are or see the true nature of themselves, we do not need machines to destroy us when we are born and raised in a system that makes us believe we are the center of the universe and all the damage we do or see is someone else's fault.

Machines by default are honest and true. its always easy to create a boogie man to blaim when in the mirror we are all to blaim. while not far in the distant future events have already happened that will leave this world a barren rock we only await the moments when the time arrives. the future is set, the door is shut.
