“Standing together to support the rights of legitimate content creators.” This is the group charter for One Voice, a group organised by Vivienne Graves, that are hosting a fundraising event to help support Gala Phoenix. Gala, the owner of Curio, as you’re probably aware, is in a legal battle over the copyright of her skins.
I’m not going to go in to detail about the whole thing, other people have done that well enough and you can find information on it here by The Blogging Elf and here at the Excinerator blog. Gala also updated her blog yesterday, which you can read here.
So from July 9th to July 16th several designers, including Truth, League, GOS, Belleza Glam Affair, Adam and Eve, SLink, One Bad Pixel, Exile, Luck Inc, Laqroki, Aura and Bare Rose (just to name a few) will be taking part in the Gala Fundraiser to help raise money for Gala’s legal fees.
Either 50% or 100% (at the creators discretion) of the cost of the items that will be on sale at the event will be donated to the cause.
So make sure you visit this event and help show your support for the rights of legitimate content creators!
***UPDATE*** The event was originally scheduled to take place at Truth District, but thanks to the community rallying around it has now been moved to a full sim! There is also a new group in world called One Voice Updates, owned by Matchbox Monday, if you would like to keep up to date.
