Prevarication Du Jour

MrA201310072045ZWhich copyright violations? Well, I can’t be sure because there were so many.

meFor example, the Cabin Boy has received multiple DMCA takedown notices over his use of an image of my face. BTW, the notices haven’t come from me. I’m not the copyright holder. He published that image again during the last few days on one of his Twitter accounts.

As I pointed out yesterday, Schmalfeldt has published images of complete posts from Hogewash! on Twitter. Brief quotations from a post are certainly covered by Fair Use, and that would include a 100% quotation of a very shot post, but otherwise a complete ripoff of an entire post without permission is a copyright violation.

It’s possible that none of these violations resulted in his suspensions, but there were plenty of others that could have.

It’s not Ali Akbar who’s lying.

Oh, if you go looking for the @Tidingsofdoom account on Twitter, you’ll find that the Cabin Boy has abandoned it and that it has been picked up by Not Bill Schmalfeldt.

  1. Anyone else notice the creepy way he talks in the third person? Ever read any of his “press releases”? Why speak in the third person from a sock account unless you are tying to fool people about who you are?
