The end of Flufee
It seems that the well known funny comedy Flufee on a Meshion SL series on YouTube will be ending after 1.5 years worth of excellent filming which is very sad news to hear about this week. I’ve been a big fan of the show since it first started and it’s one of the best SL comedy shows ever. There is mention of the end of this amazing series on Flufee’s SL web profile feed. The future is unclear for any new SL shows at the moment.
A fond farewell to FLUFEE.
The last episode of Flufee on a Meshion
A new episode (#19) has been released for the 2013 Flufee on a Meshion series called Quo Vadis Fluffalah?. Featuring Torley Linden who is a big fan of Flufee on a Meshion seasons. Please show your support and comment on the amazing SL series!
Very sad news!

The message to take away from this is that we don’t own IP for our avatars- unless we make them ourselves. Flufee has been “set free,” as Drax puts it in the vid, because “we do not own the little guy.” It is an unsettling thought, as we tweak and preen our avatars, that we don’t own a thing about them. The IP rests with the creator. Machinimists will do well to arrange IP with their avatar’s creator before putting any effort into characters they hope to have a future with, and before they fall in love with them.
The message to take away from this sad event is that we don’t own one pixel of the IP for our avatars – an unsettling thought, as we tweak and preen our avatars and lovingly buy them skin, hair, clothes, and anims. The IP for every piece of that rests with its creator, as granted in Linden’s TOS. Flufee has been “set free,” as Drax says in the video, because “we do not own the little guy.” The copyright rests with the creator, at least until some creative lawyer tests collaborative virtual copyright further in court. I like to think that the Fluffball is being transformed, not terminated. But for now, we machinimists can take this as a wake-up call to arrange IP with our avatar’s creator before putting any effort into characters we hope to have a future with, and certainly before we fall in love with them.
Thanks Bay! 🙂
I’ll miss the series and i hope there will be a return of some sort in the near future. 😦
I deeply believe in the widest creative freedom.
However I just as deeply believe it’s every artist’s most basic right to control the distribution of his work.
That being said, we do not have a slightest problem with machinimas containing our characters. We didn’t pull any plugs, and we never would.
We appreciate Second Life machinima art and actively promote it, however we do not have any intentions to give up our or sell the copyright to our creations.
Thanks Loki for clearing that up. 🙂

No no, thank you.
