Do your worst.

You have stated -unambiguously- on this forum, that my webpage assists your
business and increases your sales.

Do I get a commission?

The law allows for fair use for the purposes of parody or satire - not to
mention review.

http://www.mendosus.com/photography/doug.html

I have (ever since day 1) scrupulously attributed the work (!) to you.
That's my whole point, Doug - that it *is* yours. I have never - would
never - even consider passing it off as my own. (ewwww...)

Read the page above very carefully, Doug. The most damning statements - by
far - were written by *you* (the right-hand panel) All I've done is point
them out (the left-hand panel.)

Answer your critics, Doug.
Justify your claims.

Your "legal team" may contact me at the (100% valid and active) address I
gave you earlier. I await your correspondence.

Oh, and BTW - the other two URLs are loaded up and ready to be publicised at
a moment's notice. They're both hosted anonymously and internationally. I
have no idea *who* in this forum may be willing to mirror my webpage....

Doug, there's no need for you to tell further lies about threatened legal
action.
Just post the "stepped-out pano" and I promise - hand on heart - I'll remove
the webpage and apologise.

You know - the image you have repeatedly claimed you made.

Ball's in your court.
Go for it.

Which is provided.
I had to *add* it to the images, to avoid any misunderstanding.
To be precise: *I* added the watermark on the images with *your* name.

The right to be clearly and reasonably prominently identified
as the author, in any reasonable form.


See above

falsely presented as being another's work ...Integrity of

See above


*The right to not have the work treated in a derogatory manner

Truth is a defence here.
I simply presented what you originally presented yourself - and then I
pointed out your lies.
Good luck establishing "honour and reputation" there, Doug. Look at the
defamatory language *you* used - and continue to use.

I quote you - in this forum - from a few days ago:

"...I often refer people to Jeff Ralph's site for a laugh.
Anyone who's seen or bought my marine photos has
probably seen the one he's helped sell for me... "

Good luck proving damage to reputation or business.
I take the above statement by you as implied permission to publish - not
that I need it, of course. Its just nice to know that I have your approval
and blessings.

I re-state: Where is my commission for the "sale" of your prints? (To cover
my costs re marketing and advertising of your "product")

Do I have to threaten legal action to get my fair cut?

One Q. Given what you've posted here and all the vitriol and lies
you've been spewing for years, how could anyone possibly damage your
reputation?


Someone thanked him for advice, and complimented him for his knowledge once.
I'd call that *severe* damage to his reputation.

Yeah I did actually but the ****wit's listed e-mail address
....the one you have to maintain to keep your domain name,
returns an error, just like his listed residential address.

Interesting sig you're using Doug.

Now - does this mean you're finally going to post the elusive stepped-out
pano?

Doug, would you please moderate your obscene language.
My sensitive nature is offended by such things.

Use the legitimate, valid, current address I posted some time ago.
