RL dictates its rules to SL

This post from Vint Falken made me think about a RL friend of mine who's too much afraid to play now because it's much less a community than a marketing buzz system like the web became when RL companies started to invest.

You won't be able to fight this system has LL need money to run, and companies come here more and more to invest and show off. We are only a few months before advertisements based renting of land or free based renting if you use company tools.

So, to answer you Vint, movies are pure fictions whereas avatars acting in wars or griefing are really doing malicious actions against other people hence TOS violation.
Writing rules is a hard task especially as SL is such a new playground, it's not your usual free chat room backed by university, it's a business that needs to comply with RL rules.

However, LL plays fine with us with open-source client, open bug-tracker, open-blog, open script and build system. It's still a freedom playground.
