In France, a conservative family union, Familles de France, sued Linden Lab in June 2007, alleging that Second Life gave access to minors to sexual content, including bondage, zoophilia and scatophilia, as well as gambling, and advertisements for alcohol, drugs or tobacco.
Linden Lab pointed out that the virtual world is not meant for children (people under the age of 18) because of the mature content and what happens within Second Life.
However, currently (June 2018) an effective age verification system is not implemented.
To differentiate between minors and adults, the software relies solely on the information given by the users upon registration.
Second Life has been attacked several times by groups of Residents abusing the creation tools to create objects that harass other users or damage the system.
As a result, objects with both unnecessarily high polygon counts, and unnecessarily high resolution textures are prevalent.However, minors aged between 13–17 can access Second Life, but they will be restricted to what they can see or do based on age.The Second Life world is split into sections/worlds and each one is given a maturity rating similar to films: General, Moderate and Adult.It is not uncommon for users to have to download and use, upwards of dozens of times, the amount of resources than would actually be required for the equivalent visual result.Certain areas have guidelines for script usage, which helps reduce lag by reducing resources used server-side, but does nothing to alleviate the primary issue above.
