We need to unify, content creators, fashion lovers, Curio fans, … All together, because this is an important cause. Gala Phoenix, creator of famous Curio skins, has been trapped in a serious and unfair copyright conflict. I say unfair, because I do believe in her honesty. After accusing another person to copy her work, she has been accused herself, and the problem is that this person intented a complain, a takedown notice, a legal court action asking to remove the skins from Second Life… This has much more impact for LL, and Gala Pheonix can’t continue to sell content and her skins are offline. She needs to clear her name in court, in America but also in Canada. She needs some financial help. And we are here. This is not just about Gala Phoenix creations, this is about showing how disgusted we are, how we need to prove we are here, willing to make things right, willing to step up and say no, we are not lambs anymore, we won’t let those thieves claim rights about our creations. In, and out of Second Life. We are living important days, our community needs to show its will to make things change. Curio’s case is a symbol, we will not be safe until we prove we are brave enought to fight. Time has come. Help Gala Phoenix, I think this case may change our future in Second Life, and digital copyright infringement in general.
