Correct me if  I'm wrong...

The whole "you are responsible" stuff seems to mean that if X provides any 
open source viewer, X is also responsible for any misdeeds committed with 
other people's derivatives of X?

well... Linden Labs provides an open source viewer.

Talk about a double-edged sword.

on the other hand...

While LL does in fact have my full RL adress and name (I'm ID verified and not 
thru aristotle, I sent in copies of stuff since a service like aristotle is of 
dubious legality in europe), I do not want my real life information publicly 
visible in that "viewer directory".
