Thanks to an anonymous reader for pointing out a SFGate.com article about the official launch of MMO title Second Life
, a "rapidly growing and constantly changing 3D online society, shaped entirely by its residents"
, which has its public unveiling today
. We covered this interesting user-shaped virtual world a few weeks back
, and it's now open for business, with a free Windows client download and monthly subscription fees. It's also one of the few MMO titles to have a DMCA complaints page
for infringing user-created content, where complainants must fill out a form "identify[ing] in detail the location of the copyrighted work that you believe has been infringed upon. For example 'The copyrighted work I am referring to is located on the map area labeled 'Freelon, 104,30,56'.'"
