Default Genuinely Free Animations?

Genuinely Free Animations?
Beginning furniture makers or experimenters often don't have the money and / or confidence yet to invest in buying licenced animations.

We all know from this weekend the débacle that can ensue when what appear to be "bargain-priced" licenced animations fall into their hands.

I'm trying to make a list of animations that float around in freebie circles (such as Yadni's) that they generally can count on to be legitimately free, unpirated animations for them to use without being bitten in the arse one day for having done so.

Here's my list so far, and my thoughts. Any contributions / corrections / etc appreciated.

Genuine freebies
Butcher Cassidy (confirmed in conversation)
Chip Midnight (confirmed in conversation)
Damien Fate (confirmed in conversation)
Emma Thorn (confirmed in conversation with CL 3 August 2008)
Fleabite Beach (confirmed in conversation with CL 5 June 2008)
linkin Slate (confirmed in conversation)
Ulrika Zugzwang (from her profile)
YadNi Monde (confirmed in conversation)
Yuriko Nishi (confirmed in conversation with CL 5 June 2008)

Animators who released some freebies in the past but now never licence their stuff [3]
Neo Virgo (confirmed in conversation with CL 5 July 2008)
Owain Raymaker (confirmed in conversation with CL 13 Aug 2008)
Shukran Fahid (confirmed in conversation with CL 24 Aug 2008. Please do not contact him about these freebies as he is no longer in possession of them; you must obtain them from somewhere else. And, they are not supported.)

Creator no longer exists [4]

Gwinivere Grayson
Kiari LeFay
Kris Gullwing
Launa Fauna
Michael Firefly
Princess Medici
Remo Yossarian
stephenpaul Bliss (reportedly no longer active in SL; status of his animations uncertain.)
Vicious Volos

Sine Wave (various creators). Released the following genuine freebies: Lime Jelly, Hipster, We love you girl, and We love you boy. There is a full-perm version of Caramel circulating, but its release was accidental.

[1] if you see these animations being used by anyone but them, they are likely pirated.

[2] You need to check with these animators when free stuff created by them comes into your hands.

[3] These people released some stuff as freebies in the distant past, but now only produce animations for their own use, and never licence any of these current ones out.

[4] An effort was made at clarification but no real determination of status was possible owing to the accounts having been deleted from SL. Use at your own risk.
