This is a bit of a surprise considering the apparent nonchalant attitude Linden Lab appears to have in enforcing their own policy regarding the use of real world trademarks (see previous post – Link). Via a Second Life forum post and the “Police Blotter” (Link):
Date: Sunday, March 5, 2006
Violation: Terms of Service: Trademark Violation
Region: Sandbox Island
Description: Use of a real-world trademark.
Action taken: Suspended 3 days.
Now what are the chances this person was sufficiently ticked-off that the first thing they did after their suspension lifted was to go on a Trademark-hunting/Abuse Reporting spree?
