Re: Copyright Case

In the copyright case regarding the Billikins blog posting, the owner of the site where the Billikins article was posted instructed Jon Downes that he disputed my use of "His" material on the original CFZ blog posting of the article. In order to keep Jon's name out of it, I reposted the material here while deleting the sensitive material. After which the owner of the site, one "Reverend Jim of the Church of Good Luck" sued Yahoo inc to have the original removed from my research and archives group, a group of five members which exists to house my writings after first posting and with an eye toward future use of that material (Such as publication into books)

Today I received the final word back from Yahoo concerning thge case:

Certainly. And if the other party has a good explanation as to the
disparity between statements provided for me and provided for Yahoo I should like
to know about it. And you can tell them THAT part as well.

Thank you very much, Best Wishes, Dale D.

  1. This may sound like a very hollow victory but in fact I have established through legal means that "Reverend Jim" won his initial decision by naked knavery. I have the legal precedent now that I might press further charges, should it become necessary to do so.

    Best Wishes, Dale D.
