Linden Labs Serves Notice on Second Life's Biggest Adult Film Star





Jennnnna Jameson, Second Life's Biggest Adult Film Star, and a personal friend, was recently sent this notice by Linden Labs last week requiring her to change her name- even though her name is not identical to the real Jenna Jameson, and over 40 Second Life residents hold names close in spelling to Jenna Jameson.


Jennnna is also very good friends with me and has starred in 2 recent machinimas with Ryce in a supporting role that were featured on Naughty Machinima, the main virtual reality sex channel (My film name is Ryce Hightower- just search for the term Ryce to see the films).




Dear Jennnnna,


We are contacting you about your use in Second Life of the name and identity of the celebrity Jenna Jameson.


We ask that Second Life residents respect the rights of celebrities in their name and identity. We would ask that you stop using the names Jennnnna Jameson and Jenna Jameson within Second Life, we would also ask that you stop using photos or images of the celebrity Jenna Jameson.


Within the next two (2) days, please either reply to this email or submit a Support ticket (http://support.secondlife.com/), to the attention of Harry Linden, and please provide us with:


(1) A new first name for your Second Life avatar, and
(2) A new name for your Second Life group named "Jenna Jameson."


Your new names must not infringe or be confusingly similar to the name Jenna Jameson. For example, the name Jennasis Jameson would not be acceptable.
Please also remove all photos and images of the celebrity Jenna Jameson and any other uses of her identity.


If you do not do so, we will disable your access to Second Life until you contact us with appropriate new names for your avatar and group. We will also remove all photos, images, and other uses of Jenna Jameson's identity if you do not do so.


Thank you for your cooperation and assistance in this matter.


Sincerely,


Harry Linden


Jennnna is currently in the process of changing her name and complying with this rather blunt and unfair order which apparently was not sent to the 40 other people in Second Life who hold similar names. Jennnnna does not profit from her work in Second Life and likes to entertain others. I do not see why this should be treated as a crime. She is helping the real world Jenna Jameson build revenue by introducing her to a new younger audience of virtual reality users. And if Linden Labs forces one person to change, they should force all.

  1. the letter didn't say that it was only sent to your friend, i bet jenna jameson lawyers contacted linden lab about the name after a fan said "jenna, i love your work in second life" to the real jenna. celebrities have to protect themselves or else they loose the right to do so. like the time when microsoft was suing mikerowesoft.com because the name was very alike and may confuse users into believe it was a website from them. i bet your friend can find a very hot and sexy name for her, after all, her delicious body and talent is what took her to the top, and is still gonna be there after the name change. ;)

  2. I tend to concur with you. I think that the real Jenna Jameson contacted Linden Labs.
