DMCA

Although AviUnite is a UK based company we want all of our users to be able to created and upload their content to the grid safe in the knowledge that their creations are safe. We therefore are now operating under the rules and regulations set by the Digital Media Copyright Act (DMCA).

Digital Media Copyright Act is a US law which give creators control of how and where there creations can be used, be this textures, music, prim based objects, scripts and images to name a few. Copying of any creations in virtual worlds without the expressed permission of the original creator is a violation of copyright and will not be tolerated.

If a creator finds their creations are being used without their expressed permissions they are able to issue a DMCA take down notice. All DMCA reports can be reported here: DMCA Report. Please ensure you provide a valid email address. The AviUnite DMCA staff will then send you details of what you will need to provide for us to process your claim. You must be the original creator and be able to provide sufficient proof of this.

Please note at this point AviUnite does not pre-screen any contented uploaded to the grid.
