Sorry Morgaine, I stand corrected by having read the FAQs afterwards.

I agree with others that it¹s not enough to guard against intellectual
property infringement and protect residents.

Is there a plan to allow inworld residents to detect
unidentified/unregistered Viewer names or Identifiers as least? Without
that, I don¹t see how the current policy would actually fulfill goals of the
policy and program from actual rogue viewers. It¹s a good step but that
leaves security loopholes without such enforcement abilities.

An LSL function somewhere to identify viewers would help.
Leave then to us the ability to make inworld tools to control who gets in or
