You may find some “Read all about it!” kiosks around Second Life. These kiosks are used to raise awareness of publications and provide a list of places where you can obtain them in-world. If you know of or run a newspaper or periodical in Second Life and would like to be included in this list, please contact Pathfinder Linden. For a comprehensive list of Resident-run web-based newspapers and periodicals, be sure to check out http://del.icio.us/secondlife/news

This machine let you create a CC license for your creative work in Second Life. It is easy to use. I started playing with it, but since I type slowly in english I didn’t managed yet to end the whole process because the machine restarts 🙂

If youre making music in SL, I suggest you to use free-licensed music (in most cases, this means a Creative C ommons license). Here are some advantages of free-licensed music:
- you don’t have to pay money
- you don’t have to ask permissions
- you don’t have to follow silly limitations as “how-many-times-did-i-play-this-song-today”
- you’re complying with the law
- authors are happy with that
Authors that choose a free license want people freely using and sharing their music. Uphold their work!
I will provide here some free-licensed-music resources links. Follow them, in most cases you also will find a stream URL for these albums. This should make easy their use in SL.
