Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


After losing LOLsuit VIII: Avoiding Contact, Bill Schmalfeldt managed to stay out of court for around a couple of years, but has still had delusions of adequacy in 2016. This Legal LULZ Du Jour is from four years ago today.

MU201607092257ZJust so. The Cabin Boy™ rages on.

He schemes and plots but without any understanding of the law or the Rules of Civil Procedure or the Rules of Evidence. Indeed, if he understood the Rules of Evidence, he would know that spousal privilege would prevent calling someone’s wife to testify about communications with her husband and with what she had seen him do or not do.

He who knows when he can fight and when he cannot will be victorious.

The Cabin Boy™ has made noises about a copyright LOLsuit against his most recent former employer over a DMCA takedown of material he had posted on his latest YouTube channel.

BTW, as of 10 pm ET last night, he still only had 9 subscribers.

  1. I’m sure those nine subscribers will all chip in to defray William’s (latest) ex-employer’s legal costs once they’re awarded against him.

    I mean it’s not like they have better uses for their money, like overdue dental reconstruction, for instance.

  2. Old Bill must have finally accepted the fact that he won’t have any more jobs in small market radio – otherwise he would never threaten/attempt to sue a former employer over such a thing. Such a lawsuit would kill any chance he ever had of getting another job. Of course, if the radio stations had done a serious background check to begin with, they would have found and taken seriously the previous lawsuits around copyright that Bill has been involved in. They would have realized he was damaged goods from the start.

  3. Let him sue. I would bet that before he started work at the radio station he signed an employment agreement. Every boilerplate employment agreement I have read includes this little line:
    If a work is created by an employee in the course of his or her employment, the employer owns the copyright.
