"In a bold move that only leads people to further suspect deception, Wade published another blog that this time he acquired a domain name for. The reason why a proprietary domain name was a requirement in this case was that it was needed to create the impression of being a regional news site. Writing articles now for the “Newtown Post-Examiner,” Wade appears to be making an attempt to pose as a writer working for a non-biased news organization. The strategy appears to be paying off to some degree. A few news stories on the web site quotes from the Newtown Post-Examiner. They don’t bother to clarify that it’s a blog and likely doesn’t employ an editorial review process."
Additionally, there are some family members of victims and collateral victims that ARE sick of the daily harassment heaped upon them by hoaxers, they are sick of hoaxers stealing their intellectual property, and and they ARE fighting back.
That is a lot of claims!
Further, Fair Use is an AFFIRMATIVE DEFENSE. It does not mean that there isn't a valid claim to the property you are stealing, it means that once you are sued for stealing it, you have a handy defense you can ATTEMPT.
Since there several claims against this film, I don't know how this will turn out. I personally doubt the film makers could claim "fair use" on at least three of the items I know of; however, I don't have a dog in that particular fight.
I know I stand with the families for truth against hoaxers and their intimidating tactics and harassment. Period.
By the way, the film makers KNOW exactly what they stole.. so ask them what it is that really getting them shut down.
Maybe, for once, you would get a straight answer from them… but I doubt it.
