Justice League Unlimited’s BrainiacWiki Papers Coverup?

Kalel Venkman now playing whack-a-mole with file sharing sites

by Pixeleen Mistral, National Affairs desk

The leaked Justice League Unlimited "BrainiacWiki" papers have been yanked from 5 file sharing sites – an apparent coverup attempt by embattled JLU loyalists wielding copyright infringement claims – but it may be too late for this sort of damage control given how widely the wiki has spread. 


Kalel Venkman – an unhealthy interest in tights and surveillance?

The JLU is a spandex tights fetish and role play paramilitary organization which – if the leaked wiki is to be believed – compiles detailed dossiers on Second Life residents the JLU considers enemies. This is all part of the JLU's gameplay – a charming combination of ongoing surveillance of other players, a centralized database and enemies list, and a concerted effort at influencing Linden Lab staff and the in-game abuse report system into permanently banning other players.


Wrong Hands Group posing after infiltrated the JLU

While the JLU plays whack-a-mole on free file sharing sites, the Wrong Hands group which claims to have  orchestrated the infiltration and public shaming of the JLU faction took time to send a group photo to the Herald – an action likely to enhance everyone's gameplay – superheros need super villians to fight, after all. 

After learning the Brainiac wiki papers were no longer available from the sharebee.com site, I contacted JLU leader Kalel Venkman hoping to ask him how long he thought it would be until the Brainiac made its way into Bittorrent, and how the Second Life superheros plan to respond. But Mr. Venkman was busy:

Pixeleen Mistral: hi Kalel – how are you doing tonight?
Kalel Venkman:
A bit busy.
Kalel Venkman:
Another time.
Pixeleen Mistral
: I'm getting reports that some of the sharebee sites have removed the dumps of the JLU wiki
Pixeleen Mistral: any comments?
Kalel Venkman: You published my previous comments without my consent.
Kalel Venkman: I have nothing more to say to you.

Could Kalel be busy explaining to his super friend Teagan Linden how her private chats with the JLU ended up splashed all over the interwebs? Was it really a good idea to have a wiki page bragging on how Plexus Linden has access to the Brainiac misinformation database and wears a JLU avatar keylogger without carefully vetting new recruits to the Kalel's faction?

    If anyone wants the leak I will give it to you my treat, funny how these people resort to DMCAing for content from a site under the GNU. Kinda violates the DMCA, not to mention the fair use act. Lolsuits aren’t scary, especially when you know the law. I wonder what mediawiki would say trying to claim ownership of their property?

  2. Haha…these “superheroes” in tights have no sense of how villainy works. They will be crushed like the bugs they are. Buxom Superheroines will be spared, temporarily, for my experiments.

    We supervillains…um, I mean I, shall prevail! Muahahaha.

    On the other hand, it did get removed. Could it be that the law is actually protecting them because they knew how to use it? Go figure.

    I’ll have to check the downloads when I’m back at my computer to see if those html docs still work. If not, yea I’d much appreciate a leak.

    @Neo Citizen

    no, it means someone klicked the report button.
    Thats mostly right next to the download button.
    the most hosters remove the files very quick, without big analysis.

    Btw, I love how butthurt Kalel is in this. He was being questioned by an interviewer, how could he not think that his commments would be shown?

    “I have nothing more to say to you, you posted my shit without my permission. BAWWWWWWW!”

    That’s basically what my eyes see when I read his remarks above.

    Someone needs to get that shit seeded out into the torrentsphere so it can spread like wildfire in an unstoppable manner.

    George Reeves was the best superman. Kalel Venkman is only 56th best.

    We’re working on linking together everything and renaming the files before we make a torrent. :P

    The excessive surveillance activities of this Kalel Venkman (yuk yuk) griefer is a gross violation of other SL users’ right to privacy, and hence a violation of the community standards (disclosure as well as harassment). He should be banned permanently.

    Calling Warner Brother’s legal dept tomorrow morning, when I am done with the JLU you guys are going to be sitting in a cardboard box dressed as “Super Guy” and “Bat Person”

    Anyone else who wants to contact Warner Brother’s legal dept to inform them about the massive group of people using their copyrighted characters can contact WB’s legal dept at:

    4000 Warner Boulevard

    I’ll be interested to see what Warner Brothers make of your call Robble. After all, the Dune roleplayers got taken down over their use of characters and locations by the owners of those intellectual properties in April 2009.


    “”We’re impressed by the creativity of role-playing games in Second Life and believe that they’re an important part of the inworld social experience. When intellectual property owners notify us of concerns about fans’ use of their intellectual property, we pass these concerns along. It’s our hope that the parties will communicate directly to resolve their disagreement in a way that respects intellectual property while continuing to offer great experiences for fans and gamers in Second Life.”"

    And the Dune roleplayers were just apparently enjoying some harmless roleplay amongst themselves. It’s not like they were running round the grid riding those big worm things, firing off hideous amounts of abuse reports and creating potential legal issues and lawsuits that could reflect badly on certain intellectual properties. I doubt that Warner Brothers are likely to be very happy about the way their intellectual properties are being used. Their reactions will prove very interesting indeed and could have repercussions for the grid as a whole I’m thinking.
