The Axeman Speaks 10-9-2011
The opinions expressed in this column do not necessarily reflect the opinion of Wrestling News Center, the Webmaster, or anyone else connected with this site. They are mine, and mine alone, unless otherwise stated. If you agree with me, OK, and if you don’t, that’s OK. Either way, you're gonna read this, and that's what is important.
Wrestling News Center, received the following email last week:
"Message = Copyrighted documents by MLW and TIWF being used by TFW in a recent post.
Uploading or downloading works protected by copyright without the authority of the copyright owner is an infringement of the copyright owner's exclusive rights of reproduction and/or distribution. Anyone found to have infringed a copyrighted work may be liable for statutory damages up to $30,000 for each work infringed and, if willful infringement is proven by the copyright owner, that amount may be increased up to $150,000 for each work infringed. In addition, an infringer of a work may also be liable for the attorney's fees incurred by the copyright owner to enforce his or her rights. Please remove all unauthorized copyright material. Thank you."
This email was sent to the WNC webmaster by a guy calling himself Steven Hunter. Now, I never heard of this guy. Nobody at WNC has ever heard of him. Who he is, I do not know.
The strange fact is that the guy never says what documents he is referring to. I have looked back at the TFW posts on WNC for the month of September, and any TFW posts for October, and I see nothing that indicates any photo or document is copyrighted by anyone.
I, along with others, have emailed this "Steven Hunter," asking which photo(s) he is referring to. As of today, none of us have received the courtesy of a response.
So.... As Head Writer at Wrestling News Center, this is my final attempt to get a response from this Steven Hunter, whoever he may be, wherever he may be, whatever he may be up to here. Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have a legitimate issue to discuss with Wrestling News Center. If you do not want to do that, contact the owner of Wrestling News Center, who I know has also emailed you. Otherwise, we will consider the matter closed. It's your move.
