Second Life Copybot is program that copies items without the permission of the items’ creators. This program was originally created by libsecondlife development team as an import/export or backup tool to assist in the development of AI (artificial intelligence) or NPCs (non-player characters) in the game.
The source code for the original SL Copybot was made public and it was then edited and recompiled into a program that is now used to replicate items in Second Life.
The functions/features of the SL Copybot include:
- Copying Second Life items that you don’t own without having to get permission from the creator
- Second Life scripts cannot be copied
- Contents of prims cannot be copied, only items that the can be seen directly
- SL Copybot logs into the game as an avatar
Second Life has made numerous attempts to stop the program but the creators of the Copybot have found patches to get it working again. Because of SL developers attempts to stop the program, a working Second Life Copybot can sometimes be hard to find if you don’t know where to look.
