Alot of you already know about the One Voice Event going on right now. But for those who dont.
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 these baseless claims.
The fundraiser will be held from July 9-15, with a blogger preview on July 8th.
Some participants 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.
Please contact Sophia Harlow or OMGWTF Barbecue if you'd like to participate as a content creator or blogger, and join the inworld group One Voice for updates and the LM when we open!

It's pretty sad when a copybot can come in to your store, copy your items, sell them, and then file a case against you in court based on copyright infringement... and it could happen to ANYONE. I support this cause, and I hope you will too.
For the time being I have only just 1 item and its the hair in this post. But I intend to go back and support this more and more.
Enjoy and Shop On!
