Second Life Removes Art Exhibit Over Artistic Nudity

The online virtual environment Second Life has taken down an art exhibit because its community guidelines do not allow nudity unless it is confined to a space that has a “mature” or “adult” rating.  According to the blog, Bloggin Censorship, filmmaker Peter Greenaway hurled strong criticism against Second Life: “Like any self-respecting artist of course I am against gratuitous exploitation that demeans and insults intelligence and sensibilities but by your blanket censorship you are now doing both those things – insulting artistic intelligence and demeaning sensibility.”
