Linden Lab and Second Life continuing to allow copybot to reside on the grid is a blemish. There is no legitimate reason for copybot other than to steal the IP of hardworking people.
Copybotters are like credit card skimmers. Legit criminals. By not taking a stand LL is complicit in my my mind of the crime. LL should perma ban the criminals.
I am aware of a well established creator who is currently having to fight to protect his creations from a 2 month old account.
LL needs to stand up for its creators and do what it is right.
