DMCA from Black Rifle Coffee Company® submitted by PuttItOut to Voat

thewebofslime 0 points 63 points (+63|-0) ago


Object, always. Every single time. (In this case, also mention that the account already voluntarily removed material in question.) I hope that fellow users, here, also take to social media to let them know we don't appreciate frivolous DMCA abuse.

Have a standard template for objection.

Check out Facebook's policy:

Usernames are generally claimed on a first-come, first-served basis. This means that you may see a Facebook Page or profile that includes your trademark in its username. While there may be cases where this type of use can be reported for trademark infringement based on the context of its use, please note that not every use of your trademark in a username is necessarily a trademark infringement. The same word used in a different context may not violate your trademark.

Someone else may use a copyrighted mark on any social media platform as a username if there is no attempt to confuse consumers. If an account has had no updates, no profile image, and there is no intent to mislead, it typically means there’s no name-squatting or impersonation.

Affirmative Defense #1: They did not "consider" Fair Use applicability before sending the notice. Black Rifle Coffee Company failed to actually consider whether this qualified as fair use or not and, instead, had a knee jerk reaction at seeing a close facsimile, but not exact replication, of their company name. Instead, they had a "knee jerk" reaction.

Affirmative Defense #2: The account was not a misrepresentation, but merely a similar username and usernames are not copyrighted.

Affirmative Defense #3: The account did not post any infringing material.

Affirmative Defense#4: Since Black Rifle Coffee Company did not take into consideration legally required issues before sending the DMCA, the DMCA notice they initiated was, ITSELF, A MISREPRESENTATION, and therefore, Voat is entitled to tany legal fees that arise from their misrepresentation of the issue.

Affirmative Defense #5: Doctrine of Laches applies here, since they already had a reddit username of the same spelling, BUT DELETED IT because of the bad publicity the account gave. This happened OVER A YEAR AGO.

Affirmative Defense #6: Since they ALREADY ABANDONED THE SAME USERNAME on another social media platform over a year ago, they explicitly communicated intent to abandon on an almost identical platform.

Affirmative Defense #7: Black Rifle Coffee is selectively applying their poor interpretation of the law to target Voat, specifically, and has failed to achieve any results of a similar request ON ANY OTHER PLATFORM.

A copyright holder who pays lip service to the consideration of fair use by claiming it formed a good faith belief when there is evidence to the contrary is still subject to Section 512(f) liability.

Here is what youtube says:

"It is our position that in general use of a string of characters or group of words in a username that happens to be used as a trademark in some market by another party is not infringement. In almost all cases the use is not a commercial use in the meaning of trademark law, and does not cause confusion. Further, to the extent that most trademark claimants have not used their marks in a market or for services overlapping YouTube, the YouTube user has priority regarding that name within our market.

Actually, they had to pay a shill company to post hundreds of pictures of dogs to bury our commentary. Check their twitter.

I'm really liking Dissenter. submitted by pcdude to whatever

thewebofslime 2 points 42 points (+44|-2) ago

Dissenter can be used in a lot of interesting ways:

Correcting Wikipedia articles. Go go go.

Archiving the text within articles on the article, itself.

Posting people's private pictures publicly on their social media pages.

Calling out frauds on politicians' pages. Go go go.

The idiots in media have provided you with an opportunity to take over the Internet because they are telling the Left to stay away from it. Seriously, get to it.

You can make "alt right" mainstream or "conservative" or whatever you want to call yourself. Labels are lame and this is a good opportunity to prove that.

Reddit's /r/politics? Already getting heavily hit. There is nothing the mods can do. If 10,000 people comment on their subreddit, you will see something happen. They WILL freak out.

Pizzagate is a Fact: The Totality of the Evidence (My Highest Effort Pizzagate Post Ever, Covers Uranium One, Gulftainer, Skolkovo, Mueller, etc.) submitted by thewebofslime to GreatAwakening

thewebofslime 7 points -7 points (+0|-7) ago

I edited the post three times. I'm trying.

Here's the thing, in the timing surrounding your shitty response, my website was attacked.

What do you really think I am after? I am after determining if /v/Pizzagate is operating as a limited hangout. The format is designed intentionally to operate as such and you may just be a pawn, but your recent interactions have raised some serious concerns. Because you raise the possibility you are a shill covering for a criminal conspiracy, I have archived everything I could on you on the Internet and I will be comparing it to my logs.

So, you accused me of being a shill, but I have a little mini RICO database of shills that I will "thot audit." I have a couple of lawyers going over what I've got and a computer science professor from the UC system to provide expert insight.

Am I going to find an IP in my logs that connects your Twitter geolocation tags?

Maybe. Maybe not. You are but one.

Do you understand where I am really coming from?

I've been providing /v/Pizzagate with honesty traps for two years and they always fail.

You made up a completely false interpretation of the spam rules to target my content. That doesn't sit well with me.

Seriously. Do I need to thot audit you? If you don't provide me with some kind of explanation of your behavior, you go straight to the top of the list past the /r/politics mods. I'm not kidding around.

What type of evidence would I require to prove to Voat that users from the /v/Pizzagate subverse are carrying out injection attacks, bash attacks, etc? submitted by thewebofslime to ProtectVoat

thewebofslime 7 points -7 points (+0|-7) ago

I'm not disgruntled, I'm just trying to figure out what is going on.

You made up a fake rule in an attempt to censor my post. I haven't checked if you've responded to that or not, yet. Maybe next. So, it is weird that you are trying to discredit me even though I have been exceedingly cooperative and polite. I'm documenting everything. If you haven't done anything wrong, then... let's talk about it.

What is your actual issue? yadayadayada... I've already asked in other posts and I'd like to keep those conversation there.

Painting me as such...l even though I have been adhering to your requests and specifications seems a little dishonest, but I'm not here to talk about that.

I am looking for information on precedent, I suppose.

Since everyone uses similar logins, names passwords and such, it is easy to track down outside information on a lot of users.

So, I have been running a comparison to what I am seeing.

If you guys have been paying attention, you know I have the data to back up what I am saying.

This isn't a disgruntlement.

I was insulted... not that I care... then my site was attacked within minutes of the angered person who gave this response designed to discredit me.

Of course, I am met with insults.

But, I am just looking into what is going on.

If you don't believe me... ask me anything. I've been super transparent.

Literally ask me anything you need to be convinced.

Look, I've got a lot going on.

And I addressed your rule interpretation when you made the claim. So, unless you are deleting posts, you should know exactly what I am talking about. There is no reason to start a duplication about it here. And, ultimately, I don't care if you delete my post or not. In two years... I never have complained even though they mostly get deleted.

What I am looking for is specific and I've been telling you and everyone else about it all along. It isn't a secret and I know you've read my posts.

We can talk about all of that, but I am looking to discuss how to present the technical details of my logs in the smartest way, because I'm not going to dump an entire log of thousands of attacks if it isn't going to be useful.

I started a thread in my completely ignored subverse, where we can hash out your words and my words and everything else.

So, if those are your concerns and your claims... lets go ahead and address those here. I'm trying to keep up, but I've got a lot on my plate. That's why I asked for help from three family members who don't even believe in Pizzagate to look at what it going on.
