As if the downward spiral of Second Life needed any help as it augered into the ground, the biggest celebrity real estate baroness has just decided to invoke the DMCA against anyone using her copyrighted material. Including the press. Wait, this just in, it's only people using her copyrighted material to portray her in a bad way. Her grasp of the situation doesn't quite measure up, since she was born in China and lives in Germany and doesn't really have an actual legal copyright to her Second Life avatar filed in the US that I could find on file. The US is the only place where the DMCA is valid.
Basically, she bluffed YouTube and some Aussie newspaper into dropping the images of her getting attacked by penises because her e-feelings were hurt. I think we've found the answer to the question of why anyone would want to do that to her in the first place. Unfortunately for her, the internet takes its freedom of information seriously, and now the very video she sought to suppress is being distributed even more widely than it was before, mostly out of spite. It's already back up on YouTube under several user accounts, is on Google Video, and is being mirrored on private servers.
Way to go Anshe. You're the new Lars Ulrich.
Note: I was going to run this with a picture of Ailin Graef's head photoshopped onto The Fonz on water skis but I've reached my Cease and Desist limit this month.
