Casinos – covenant change (by Ralf)

by

Hi everyone,

 since our covenant at the moment excludes any type of gaming activities, we are gona change this.

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.

.

Framework (Examples):

– Linden

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.
