Poor little man

--posted by Tony Garcia on 4/25/2006

The poor little man at imp tried to threaten us in a blatant and brazen effort to prevent us from analyzing his hypocrisy on the air. Upon being faced with the reality of copyright infringement defense he went on instead to namecalling.
For the benefit of Michael “the thief” Brodkorb and Tony “the plunderer” Garcia of Leighton Broadcasting owned radio station KNSI-AM let me say that again. You need explicit written permission to use the material. To all of our other listeners, if you enjoy our coverage of politics, please write these two thieves and ask them to stop stealing from my podcast and stealing from the hard work and ultimately the paycheck of other journalists.
See the poor little man try to inflate his own importance.

Mikey McIntee, let me explain this to you. There are a few things that you really fail to understand. Using fair usage clips from your podcast is NOT taking any money from "other jounalists". What allows us the fair usage? What is it that you wish to ignore in an effort to prevent analysis of your political speech? That nasty little thing called The Constitution.

So, call me "the plunderer" all you wish. It will not prevent fair usage. Ask people to write begging us to infring upon our own free speech rights. It will not stop us. (BTW, as of right now there have been no such requests.) I thank you for the link...and all ONE hit from it.

********** UPDATE **********
Ah yes, the sad little man continues debating on facts and issues.
Grow up and get a real job, if you can. I'd be surprised if any decent employer would want to hire you after he or she googled your name read the venom you spew forth.

How was the material used? Fair use is a tricky area. Use of 30 seconds of one thing might be fair use. But use of 30 seconds of something else, might not be.

Heh, sounds like things are not going so well for imp's SLAPP against MDE..the spectre of a countersuit to recover attorney fees must begin to loom large.

We need to put "The Plunderer" on your business cards.

Have we established whether IMP even makes any income for you to deprive him of?

It is established that the podcasts are free (no paid subscription necessary) and therefore are subject to even more lenient useage.

Every step we have taken further provides safety for us (some of those steps are very subtle). I have consulted a copyright lawyer on this matter from the very beginning.

Actually, I agree with him on that last update, I can't believe you find gainful employment either.
