Bullied by Occupy Wall Street MemberApr 28th, 2012 | By gotovac | Category: Blog
I went to an Earth Day rally organized by Occupy Long Beach to make a video. The day I posted my video I received the email below, trying to bully me to take my video down. So much for freedom of speech…
As I have not and am not giving you permission to use my image or name in any way shape or form, I am informing you that my name and image have been COPYRIGHTED! Any further use of my image is violation of my Copyright Notice and each Occurrence is a $500,000 fine. I appear in the OLB earth day video you have posted… if it remains up I will start the legal process. And for your information interviewing children without parental consent is a violation of law displaying those interviews is yet another violation of Law. Since you are apparently not from this country I’m giving you 48 hours to take the video down before I report you and begin legal action. This is not a hoax this is not an empty threat I have notified you privately of this information and my COPYRIGHT NOTICE is public record. Please act accordingly.
Other than his amusing, xenophobic attack on my foreign name, I wonder how many other people have been bullied by false (and possibly illegal) cease and desist letters.
