One Voice

Curio’s Gala Phoenix is currently in the midst of legal issues which have resulted in her content being removed from the grid, pending the outcome of her legal battle. The Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) process in Second Life requires that when there is legal action taken against your content, Linden Lab will remove it from the grid until a ruling is made. Gala’s fellow content creators have come together to host a fundraiser to help with the enormous amount of legal fees she will have to bare in order to fight her case.

The fundraiser will be held from 9th-15th July, with a blogger preview on 8th July.

Confirmed participants so far are: Gos, Belleza, Glam Affair, League, Ingenue, Aura, OneBadPixel, Exile, Luck ink, A.D.D. Andel, Pink Fuel, Laqroki, Solange, N-Core, LouLou & Co, Body Doubles, IKON, Mon Cherie, This is a Fawn, Bare Rose, Wet Cat, Purple Moon, Indyra Originals, E!

Participating creators will offer their items as either 50% or 100% donations.

The event is not only to help Gala Phoenix, but to also take a stand for the community of content creators, for many of whom SL is their main source of income. This could happen to any one of us, and it’s necessary that we stand up and fight back to ensure that it doesn’t.

Gala is aware of this event and has published her official statement and a detailed description of the past events on her blog.

** UPDATE ** The event is now open, here is your taxi!!!

  1. I’m so glad you’re all doing this. Gala’s skins are phenomenal. And her freinds ralllying round her during this time, well that’s phenomenal too. Thank you all who are participating.

    • Thank you! It’s a very important cause, not just to help Gala, but other content creators too. Second Life would be nothing without the many talent people who make it what it is.
