Can people steal my stuff in OpenSim?

Can people steal my stuff in OpenSim?
A few days ago I saw a Tweet, that said something like, “I looked at OpenSim, but some guy said he would steal all my stuff. So, no thanks!” In fact, that attitude comes up a lot on discussion boards and in other forums.
There’s a perception that OpenSim is the Wild West. That the minute you step onto an OpenSim grid, someone is going to grab everything you own, and distribute it everywhere for fre

Linda Kellie : Free original Creations
http://zadaroo.com/
These are all my orginial creations. You can download these and use them in any opensim grid or in Second Life. All files are exported using the Imprudence Viewer and you will need to use the Imprudence Viewer to import them as well. All files are zipped. So after downloading you will need to unzip them before trying to import them.

Enlades
http://enlades.wordpress.com/
Enlades, as an idea for a blog, came to mind and was discussed between Thom Lunasea and myself from around July to its inception in September 2010. Up to that point both of us had happily spent over two and half years building, meeting, shopping, exploring, working and learning in Second Life; the virtual environment constructed and owned by Linden Research, Inc.
In 2010 we decided that we were going to leave Second Life and try our own virtual world building. We chose to set up an OpenSim install, initially on a pc and then on a hosted server.
Enlades is based around the idea that most people can learn how to build their own virtual world and content. Which is why we concentrate on explaining techniques that can be used in a variety of environments – whether that is Second Life, OS Grid or an OpenSimulator installation on your laptop.

Facebook: instant regions to OpenSim
http://bit.ly/fwjGdT
Kitely brings Facebook, instant regions to OpenSim
http://www.kitely.com/
In a major step forward for usability of OpenSim, Israel-based startup Kitely has created a Website that allows any Facebook user to create, load and enter an OpenSim world in less than two minutes.
The world owner can then invite other individual Facebook users to visit, invite an entire group, or allow public access to any Facebook user, at a price of $0.20 per user per hour.
The system runs on the Amazon cloud, so regions are only loaded up when they’re needed, and shipped into storage when there’s nobody on them.
A user who uses the world by themselves and spends an average of ten hours a week on his region would expect to pay around $8 a month.
And a company that invites 100 people to attend an event for an hour, would pay $20 for just that one event.
There are no setup fees. A region that is saved on the platform but is not accessed for a whole month costs $0.10 for the storage costs.
There is no charge to region visitors.

List of OpenSIM Statistics
This list only includes grids that have published usage data this month. Some grids may have been down for maintenance, relocation, or were shut down since our survey last month. InWorlds and OpenLifeGrid do not consider themselves OpenSim grids and OpenLifeGrid does not publish usage data. "Regions change," "Users change" and "Actives change" refers to how many more regions, registered users, and active users the grid reported compared to the previous month.

How to choose an OpenSim hosting company

How to choose an OpenSim hosting company
Yes, you can run OpenSim for free on your own computer - you can even run it on a USB stick. But do you want to?
Here’s a question — would you run your own Apache Web server for your website, or would you use a third-party hosting service? If you’re the kind of person who runs Apache at home, you’ll probably do just fine with running your own OpenSim server.

"What this means, essentially, is that you can run your own simulator, or ’sim’ on fairly modest hardware. Yes, go ahead and read that again - I’ll wait. Now you HAVE to be excited (I sure was), if you’ve used such things before, because everyone I’ve ever known who has tried Second Life has always wanted a nice simulator they could run on their own, that didn’t depend on connecting to the Linden Lab Grid."

OpenSimulator at Wikipedia
"OpenSimulator, often referred to as OpenSim, is an open source server for hosting virtual worlds similar to Second Life.
OpenSimulator uses libsecondlife to handle communication between the client and server, so it is possible to connect to an OpenSim server using the Linden Lab Second Life client.
Other clients for Second Life are also interoperable, since Second Life and Opensim use the same communication protocols."
