One Voice is a group created by Vivienne Graves to support the rights of legitimate content creators.
A fundraiser event is being organized and will be held from July 9-15 to help and support Gala Phoenix (owner of Curio). As you certainly know by now, 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 these baseless claims. More info here: curioonline.org/2012/07/05/curio-news-release/ Some participants of this event include Flowey, BareRose, Black Lace, Belleza, Ingenue, Laq, Luck Inc, One Bad Pixel, Gos, Truth, Bent, Fawn, Cupcake, evolve, Glam Affair, ely, Lassitude & Ennui, Zanzibar, Adorkable, Ikon, League and many more. This fundraiser 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. If you’d like to participate as a content creator or blogger please contact Sophia Harlow or OMGWTF Barbecue Remember join the inworld group One Voice Updates to keep you updated and to get the LM when the event starts!
