Machinima policy out of sync with Terms of Service as of December 15, 2010?

I read the Terms Of Service of December 15, 2010, and noticed that the terms require SL users to grant other SL users a license to use their content in Snapshots or Machinima.

"If you do not wish to grant users of Second Life a Snapshot and Machinima Content License, you agree that it is your obligation to avoid displaying or making available your Content to other users. For example, you may use Virtual Land tools to limit or restrict other users' access to your Virtual Land and thus the Content on your Virtual Land."

This seems to contradict the Snapshot and Machinima Policy at, section (a), which requires snapshot/machinima makers to check a land parcel's covnenant.

Which supersedes which? I don't see how both can be true. If Content is accessible, the Terms Of Service state that a license to use said Content by others, in snapshots and machinima, is granted when a user accepts the Terms of Service.

Or am I mistaken?

Jira requesting privacy settings on land

I have created a Jira requesting for additional privacy settings in relation to the growing popularity of the feed (

Additionally. I feel it is incorrect that "land owners" is limited to estates. I pay more for mainland so I should expect sufficient protection on the mainland.
