There is a first time for everything, so they say…And today I got my very first email from the Intellectual Property Team:

IP COMPLAINT DETAILS
- Item: Animation named “danish” Location: Inventory of Caitlin Tobias
*If animations were removed, the replacement animation may be in your HUD or animation overrider
I have NO idea what the animation was, probably something I got ages ago. Whatever, I don’t miss it. It’s a good thing, in my opinion, that LL does its best to protect creators!

Danish is a dance from SINE that was part of a bunch of full perms dances stolen from Easy Babcock and crew. They were even sold on Xstreet and made Top Seller while all of we Xstreet Merchants were howling “foul”.. I am sure many folks all over the grid are still having these dances replace by maybe The Chicken Dance” ;-)
Thanks Argus, I had no idea it was a SINE dance they found. It’s good they can find and remove stolen items, and this one..I really don’t know, think it was given to me at some point. Will go look what they replaced it with, hehe!
