Do sim owners have the right to make you change your owner tag created by Linden Lab?

 Not really sure what you're asking - sounds like you're referring to your "group" tag. Not only do they have the right to have you change your group tag, there are often things that you won't be able to do if you don't have the correct group tag on.

They also have the right to ask you to change your group tag even if it's only to have you not display something they deem offensive or advertising another place. The fact that the tag was "created by Linden Lab" means nothing. Although technically the system BEHIND everyone's tag was created by the lab, groups are created by users.

Yes, they can. I can also assume why. Sure "owner" is the default tag for everyone who is the head of a group and owns that group. Its a quite unspecific tag, as it doesn't state what is owned. So, I assume the person form this particular sim feels uncomfortable, when someone runs around with a tag that could be missleading. Other visitors (especially new residents) could think you are the owner of the sim.

They have no rights to make you do anything, but they do have the right to enforce there rules. If you go to a RL club and they not allow jeans, then you are not allowed into the club. A choice, accept the rule or go elsewhere.

ADDED: You edited you first post, seems to me you have issues and we here to help not get into one sided arguments. If you feel the need to be a rebel that is your choice, just accept others are different and will not bow down to your view.

Welcome to Second Life Answers, Ethanately

How do you know someone used a crasher on you that forced a log out?

You can add more to your thread by clicking on "options" at the top right hand corner of your original post to "edit".

If "the simm owners know they staff did it", ie owned up to a crasher being used on you, certainly if you are on a combat sim this is allowed. Read the covenant of the land!

Here's the deal:  In Second Life, He Who Owns the Land, Makes the Rules.  Not only that, he doesn't have to abide by them, he is a law unto himself.

A land owner can require people on his land to do whatever he wants.  If they don't, or if he just doesn't like them, he can kick them off the land.

Having said that, carrying an "Owner" group tag is pretty innocuous behavior unless you are also going around pretending that you ARE the sim owner.  "Owner" is the default group tag for the owner role of ANY group.  It's a good idea for the owner of the group to come up with different tags for their group's roles, but lots of people are lazy and don't do it.

So, on your side of the fence...if you don't like the sim owner's policies or his behavior toward you...don't go there!  This actually gives you more power than you may think.  If a land owner chases too many people away by being crabby and antisocial, then nobody will go there.  With no customers, the land owner can't pay his tier, and goes out of business.  This sort of natural selection can take a while, but it works.  Land owners who make things pleasant for their customers and visitors are the ones who, in the long run, prevail.

It is important to respect a sim. Remember, when someone opens their sim to the public that's like opening their home to you. They are getting vulnerable for your benefit. That Resident is spending RL Currency for your benefit. It is just respectful to be sensitive to that by respecting the sim rules, wearing the sim tag or a inoffensive tag and wearing an avatar that is in keeping with the sim motif.

It is also respectful for the sim owner to understand someone may have a Role Play that is different from their sim when they leave. That sim owner does not have the right to reject you from their sim for what you do in a different sim (Unless what you do is against the TOS, CS or Local Laws). Although they do have the right to eject you for being offensive to the sim's purpose or occupants.
