OpenSim: Content Creators Dilemma?


This video purports to show a Second Life object duplicator capable of allowing users to transfer objects to alternative worlds, like OpenSim. Now it’s really irrelevant whether this thing works or not, because the mere thought of such a device is going to be enough to send content creators into a frenzy.

You see the problem isn’t that you may wish to transfer objects you have bought into OpenSim. It’s what permissions they have when they get there. Do they retain the same ones as they had in Second Life or is the user perfectly free to do what they like with it now? Because if they can copy-mod-tran in OpenSim then what’s stopping them from reimporting the object back into Second Life? Instant full perms copy. Who would want to be a content creator when you can have your intellectual property rights so easily undermined?
