After all, the LittleBigPlanet model encourages users to share their levels for free. The revenue we generate for Sony by building their content for them is just part of the genius of their business model. Crowdsourcing for teh win.
But how does the equation change as user-generated content becomes less a matter of remixing existing intellectual property by 'modding' a game and starts to look more like the creation of original work? What happens when the systems game developers build for us are less games than platforms for the creation of new games?

The free market allows for expression of disfavor by simply not purchasing a game that may be offensive...
[Mohammed] defended the rights of his enemies to critique him in any way even if it was offensive to his own Islamic sensibilities or respect for Koranic scripture... To demand that [the game] be withdrawn is predicated on a society which gives theocrats who wish to control speech far more value than the central principle of freedom of expression upon which the very practice and freedom of religion is based.
The fact that the music writer is a devout Muslim should highlight that at the core of this issue is not about offending ‘all Muslims,’ but only about freedom of expression and the free market...

That is an excellent point.
The idea of someone being offended by this is ludicrous.
Been editing that ghostbusters level I made only to realise it didn't edit the one I put online so I had to publish the new and delete the old.
I spent a good portion of today creating a new level for anyone who plays online. I re-created or as best as I could (some liberalities had to be taken) the first level of Super Mario. Its under my names listed as "mushroom" Damn that was a lot of work
I need to try some of the online levels. When I do I'll look for this.
I have a question about stickers and costumes...if you are playing 2 player do bother players have access to the same stickers and costumes? Because my son had a few costumes that I'm pretty sure I found and vice versa. But for stickers it looked like we didn't have all the same ones. How does it work if he gets stickers and I go and play single player - will I have to go get all of the stickers that he got?
If you are using separate profiles you only have stuff you have found.
However if you pick "guest" you get full access to all of the other players things. Me and my friends use this one and we designed their sackboys and girls and saved costume using mine now we just go to guest then they can load up their costumes.
