Real Life companies/brands that have done business inside Second Life

This link was from a discussion thread in the "Educators Working With Teens" list.
From that page, scroll down to the header "What other Real Life companies/ brands have done business inside Second Life?".

Company/ brand names that I'm familiar with includes:
  • Adidas
  • BBC Radio 1
  • Channel 10 (Mhttp://www2.blogger.com/img/gl.link.gificrosoft)*
  • CNET
  • Dell
  • Duran Duran (the pop group!)
  • IBM
  • Reebok
  • Reuters
  • Sun Microsystems
  • Warner Bros Music
  • Wired Magazine
* The microsoft blog is called Channel 9, so I guess it's only logical that their presence in SL would be called Channel 10!
