I Hear You Knocking But You Can't Come In.
Are You A Grid That Wants To Protect Your Stuff?
I'm starting a consortium of grids dedicated to keeping your grid's content safe and secure. Each member of our group will delete any item originating in your grid that we find on ours. The cost to your grid is only $35 per month, payable to each member of the consortium. The money goes to our representatives in SL who will purchase items to import into OS and be freely shared with all grids that do not restrict the distribution of goods, whatever the source. We call that "Sharing Is Caring." Protect the stuff you don't want to share and protect Sharing Is Caring. It's a Win-Win!

(I'm kidding of course...)
Giving Credit Where Credit Is Due
Will there ever be an end to the copybot debate and all of it's permutations? Of course not. But we might make some progress in meeting the demand that we give credit where credit is due. But, to whom, and why? And how might that be done? Here is my proposal. Instead of just noting the owner and "creator", items need to list:

1. The original creator in SL.
2. The copybotter and importer into OS of the items created by the creator in SL.
3. The people who make functional in OS the items made available by the copybotter and importer into OS of the items created by the creator in SL.

Here it gets complicated. One likely path in the journey of an item into your inventory, and people who could get credit along the way:

4. The people who first put in their shop items they won't allow the next owner to transfer that they got full permission from the people who make functional in OS the items made available by the copybotter and importer into OS of the items created by the creator in SL.
5. The most recent person who put in their shop, with next owner no transfer permissions, items they they god powered after obtaining them from the people who put in their shops no next owner transfer items from the people who make functional in OS the items made available by the copybotter and importer into OS of the items created by the creator in SL.

I think that about covers it. For everyone's peace of mind, lets make this happen.
