Rapid City Journal ^ | 12-15-09 | Chet Brokaw

A former South Dakota lawmaker convicted of raping his two foster daughters has sent news organizations what he claims is a copyright notice that seeks to prevent the use of his name without his consent.

A letter and an accompanying document labeled "Common Law Copyright Notice" said former state Rep. Ted Alvin Klaudt is reserving a common-law copyright of a trade name or trademark for his name. It said no one can use his name without his consent, and anyone who does would owe him $500,000.

I’d say this pedophilic piece of filth deserves to catch a bullet, but it’d have to be a .50 cal to make it through him.

What is he selling to make it his trademark?

Coca Cola is also trademarked but you can talk about it.

Unfortunately for Mr. Klaudt, (1) “common law copyright” no longer exists, and (2) names and other short phrases cannot be copyrighted.

He will have to also copyright the word CREEP, a descriptive noun meaning state Rep. Ted Alvin Klaudt

It appears this pervert is a Republican. I’m surprised that label isn’t front, center and headlined in this article.

I find it interesting that his party is only eluded to ("He ran for a state Senate seat in 2006 but lost to the Democratic candidate.")

...since he is a R, you'd think it would be in the headline.

Not once in that entire article did the writer associate Klaudt with a political party.

Let's see.... twist my magic AP decoder ring two times to the LEFT and....Oh yeah, that means he's a DEM RAT.

But won’t.

Normally, I’d say you’re right. In this case, however, it appears that Klaudt is, in fact, a Republican

He was convicted in 2007. Why is he walking the streets?

I’d say he doesn’t have a whole lot of Kloudt, but there is a whole lot of Kloudt about him...

***His lawyer had argued in the appeal that while Klaudt’s actions were terrible, they did not amount to rape because the girls gave their consent in the belief they could make money by donating eggs to infertile couples.***

Where did that lawyer get his degree?

Isn’t that solicitation to procure under fraud?

This POS should have sat on sparky, but the grease fire alone would engulf the state pen. I look at it this way, keep sending cheeseburgers to his cell, and we have 2 or 3 years, tops, to house his beluga *ss.

Simple, just report on him as a picture, no name, just a prominant description of his employment and a photo of him.

How about if we mangle the name so it is not just “ Ted Alvin Klaudt”? Such as, “Lazy Fat Ass Ted Alvin Klaudt”, will that do?

Man, oh man, did he EAT those kids???
