Notice: We have been threatened by a blog pimp

Since you are blocking posting privileges for our readers we are citing you for copyright violation.

One of your posters has re-published an original article in its entirety. This is stealing intellectual property from a non-profit organization. Either pull it down or hear from the lawyers.

You have 24 hours and you are now obligated to prove that it was removed. If you do not respond we will commence with legal action.

I am curious.

How do you know that a particular poster is one of their readers in order to block her?

Why are you blocking them? Are they offensive?

I’ve picked up tons of new sites to visit thanks to Free Republic. I guess this one will remain in obscurity to me forever now. Good riddance.

Thanks for the list ... no wonder most of those sites are going under when they don’t get free advertizing ... it’s been a while since I posted anything - always get beat out by faster (speed dialing posters - LOL) anyway ...

Well, the funny thing is our moderators noticed they were violating the copyrights of publishers who had asked us to restrict our posters to excerpts only. They were posting full text on their site, claiming fair use, and then posting an excerpt on FR with a link back to their blog site. Our moderators asked them to link to the original source if they were going to do that, and they refused. Now we get threats. Effem.

Another funny thing is the guy who was doing the majority of the posting from said site has an email address from same site. LOL!

He probably posted the (un)referenced offending full text article himself. Notice that he didn’t bother identifying either the screen name of offending poster or the title of the offending article or the URL.

Good luck with your court case, Charlie Brown.

He could have had thousands of new readers checking out his blog. There was a poster 'NewMediaJournal' that incessantly posted articles from there that were actually from other sources, such as the NY Times and the WSJ - but the poster would link back to NewMediaJournal instead of the original source. Pretty shameless way to pimp your blog - with someone else's material.

- - - - - - -

So this clown gets banned for pimping their own blog and violating copyright while doing so, and NOW they claim "copyright infringement" and threaten to legal action.

ROFLMAO!

I guess not everyone understands how to obtain free advertising while protecting their proprietary rights. All they had to do was request that we use brief excerpts only; please use proper attribution and correct web address in citation; please visit us, click on our advertisers’ links, etc. Not too smart of them, especially when there’s so much competition and their business model is still evolving.

Yep. Just put them on the Safari blocked site list. Idiots.

From E-Mail "Since you are blocking posting privileges for our readers we are citing you for copyright violation."

You said;"That sentence doesn't even make sense."

The way I read it, is Jim blocked or banned some posters from that site from being able to post on Freerepublic. So now that site owner is going to get even by suing Jim if anyone posts his blog articles onto Freerepublic.

It is truly ironic to have a guy who claims that Fair Use allows him to post copyright material on his website without permission of the copyright holder to then turn around and threaten FR for having someone post HIS material on FR. This is too precious. If Gannet or the NY Times or WSJ goes after Salvato, he will have just cooked his own goose with this email to Jim.

Personally, while I do seek to obey copyright laws, and certain am against making money off other living persons writing without permission, I feel that anyone who offers material for viewing on the Internet should do so under a Creative Common license that allows unlimited copying and sharing, as long as the source is noted, and content is not changed.

Some sites do not even allow copying yet it is unreasonable to think you can offer anything on the Web and not have it copied more than once, as your hard drive already has a copy of it before you save an article.

What this New Media Journal did is not only almost incredible, considering they are supposed to be an ideological ally, but it is counterproductive to both their purpose and message. After all, suing your allies for freely spreading a message helped make America strong.

But what bothers me more is Christian ministries who make you a criminal if you share their own self-created material for free, at your material cost, from sermons to songs, or otherwise restrict its dissemination. Sure glad the Bible can yet be had without copyright restrictions in this country, and that its writers did not charge or otherwise restrict for what God gave them.

Blop pimps.

I had a run-in recently with that iloveamerica guy.

The one who posts the 10 words from his Dittos Rush blog.

Just so you will click it and give him blog-hits.

Anyway, I told him it’s bad enough that he is a blog-pimp, but when he steals content from reputable news sources, then that is WAYYYYY too much.

And you let him post that crap here on Free Republic.

This lame-a$$ threat today is maybe a sign of things to come? I still maintain you and the mods nees to kick butt on the out of control blogger issues here at FR.

JMO.
