My name is Blueberry and I am the official leader of the Blueberry Team and recently what has been going on in the merchant resources business is really upsetting me.
First of all, no matter if you are making your own textures, own mesh or not YOU are helping contributing the market to grow, you are helping SL advertisement. And we in team Blueberry and AngelRed Couture, respect that.
Reselling has been a type of business since ages and when someone opens a store you will never see whole sellers give away blank t-shirts and tell you to paint them yourself! So just because you don’t paint your own textures does not mean you can not have a business in Second Life. Marketing skills is still a very important set of skills! And YOU are the reason why me and Lexi are able to make a living off of this game! So please, do not let anyone tell you, you do not deserve to have a business in Second Life just because you are not making your own textures or mesh.
I am stepping into this today, because I can not stand seeing Lexi Zelin getting attacked when she deserves to be thanked instead. She is protecting YOUR RIGHTS when she stands up to something unfair.
Also, Lexi Zelin has no personal vendetta against Meli Imako. But just like me, she believes that the dramatic TOS change has been extremely unfair and has affected our friends.
When mesh first came out, you brought a bunch of models into world allowing a lot of new businesses to be born and we respect that. However right now you are asking everyone, who IN THE PAST used your textures to take the products off of their store and re-texture them. This is so very unfair.
So please, you are a respected creator in our community, we are asking you to come up with a TOS that protects the customer rights as much as they protect YOURS. If anything, as full perm content creators and store owners we should all help each other out and be a close knit family. We need to co-exist and respect each other to bring SL economy higher and higher together.
I realize and respect the fact that, the products belong to you and you have the right to change your TOS. But that doesn’t mean you have to play God. If you do not want your textures to be used please do not include them in your packs and do not create confusion.
Thank you very much for reading and your consideration..
Special side note:
I have read some comments about Lexi creating drama on purpose. Drama has NEVER helped a store in the past. She very well knew that when she decided to stand up for her customers and her friends who have felt wronged. So please, when you decide to talk about someone in such a harsh way, get your facts together.
Also, I apologize if my broken English offended anybody, it’s not my native language. Thank you for your time!
