Question

I don't believe if you buy stolen merchandise that you are entitled to recompense by the authorities. I do think that you can take it up with the person who sold it to you, but that's what you are saying LL is saying and you don't agree, right?

I agree it seems unfair that you bought something you thought was legit, its not like you went out on the black market or something and it would seem to follow that if LL takes away your stuff they should recompense you for it huh?

I guess that's some legal ramblings some LL or RL lawyers are gonna have to figure out.

I can totally see the logic of your arguement, but sadly I don`t think logic factors in to a lot of situations, both in SL and RL.

If you "innocently" buy a stolen car in RL, the Police will come along and take your car & return it to its proper owner. Your only recourse to get compensated would be to file a claim against the person that sold it you.

A more accurate statement would be ""Linden Lab does not generally get involved in transactions between Residents, other than where they are obliged to do so due to RL laws and/or legal action" (my addition in italics).  When LL get a properly filed DMCA takedown notice, they are obliged to follow particular procedures by law and will remove the infringing content that they can identify.  That's what causes the "IP REPLACEMENT" stuff.

As for the nonsense going around about people being banned over it, it's just a hoax started by malicious evil people who take pleasure in causing drama and distress for others. Treat it with the contempt that it deserves.

The only people likely to get banned are those who actually steal the content in the first place.  LL know that most of the people with infringing copies are also innocent victims.  Additionally, if they were going to ban you for it, they would do it based on the log of people that had the item in the first place, so deleting it after they have removed it would not save you (but that's not happening and is not going to happen, unless you are a copybotter).
