One of the wider eightbar group Anita Cassini in SL told me about a “build a better bauble” project she has got going with some other residents. The basic premise is you build a christmas tree ornanament to represent you or your brand and these all get placed on various trees around SL. The idea is that content creators come together both to show their talents and to also say no to stealing of others work.

There is a tree here with a notecard giver that says the following
The holiday season has started..
To celebrate we are launching phase I of a campaign to build awareness of how important intellectual property is for the growth and health of the Second life community.
Lets spread the word by showing everyone in SL how good it is to be creative.
