Not my usual

Hello, lovelies.  Content theft… it’s a ubiquitous word on the feed these days.  I’ve been wrestling with my thoughts lately.  Do I support the boycott or not?  Is it better to support my favorite designers or to boycott all sales to show that I don’t support stolen content?  Well, if you put it that way….. I *guess* it’s better to support my favorite designers.  Should I blog? or should I stay silent in support of the boycott?  I wanted to blog yesterday; hell, i was even upset that so many bloggers were posting yesterday.  Honestly, I spent yesterday organizing my inventory – supporting the boycott.  But today, as I read some very insightful blog posts, I have changed my mind.  It is better to support the designers.  If the designers want to boycott LL – create no content for a time – that’s their prerogative… they are sacrificing potential income to make a point, and I respect them for it.

Some say that education is the key – if people realized how much content theft hurts both the SL economy and the morale of the creative people who contribute to SL, maybe fewer people would support stolen content.  I think that’s a start.  My biggest issue, however, is not with those that steal content to resell – to make a linden. That’s despicable, true.  The motivation there is greed, pure and simple.  No, my issue is with people who copybot and *give away* – full perm – to anyone and everyone.  Why do these people do this?  It’s because they are anarchists.  They have no respect for others because they see SL as “just a game.”  They mock those of us who “take it too seriously.”  These people are completely unreachable by any education campaign because they know *exactly* what they are doing and why.

***** Rant off ********
