Spielbetriebe – Covenantaenderung (by Ralf)

2 Januar 2008

Hallo zusammen,

 da unsere covenant im Moment jede Form von Spielbetrieb verbietet werden wir diese lockern.

Dies betrifft nur die kommerziellen Grundstuecke.

Wir werden Spielbetrieb erlauben, sofern alle anderen covenant-Regeln, die Rahmenbedingungen von Linden (ToS, CS, KB) und die jeweiligen Landesgesetze (i.d.R. eure Landesgesetze und US Gesetzte) eingehalten werden.

.

Rahmenbedingungen (Beispiele):

– Linden  (Originaltexte, sorry – wir haben keinen anerkannten Übersetzer, also werden wir diese verbindlichen Texte nicht übersetzen)

This affects commercial plots only.

We will allow gaming, if all other parts of the covenant, the SL-rules (ToS, CS, KB) and laws (usualy US and your country) are respected and taken care of.

For all kind of possibilitys and risks (like land reclaim by us, by us on advice from LL – court or others, closed accounts with loss of money and/or invetorry, police investigation to name some) we can not offer advice, nor are we responsible in any way. You as a content provider are responsible for everything offered. We want to point out possible laws and rules for non-adults.
