FreeD: Stealing Intellectual Property In Order To Preserve Internet Hate?

This is going onto the t-shirts they're selling to raise money for their legal defense fund:

Get yours quick, because I don't think they'll be around for long.

h/t RB.

(Richard Warman, in case you've been living under a rock for the last six months, is the guy that's suing FreeD and others for libel)

The "Richard Warman" should be left-justified.

If I had bucks, I'd buy a Google ad to go top of page for that query...

Good idea, but the folks at Google might not be too thrilled.

Don't suppose the folks at Cafepress will be too thrilled either.

This is part of the crowd that defends SLAPP-suits to censor free expression as an issue of trademark protection and intellectual pro-per-tee is it not?

God, I wish they'd just get it together. KKKate does the same thing, all the while air-brushing copyrighted material onto stuff 'n things for commercial use.

Don't suppose the folks at Cafepress will be too thrilled either.

Did ya snitch?

BCL: Phrasing Silly And Hyper-Libelous Accusations In The Form Of Questions?

I salute your honour. No really, I do.

Hardly libellous. FD openly engages in stealing intellectual property all the time, and - get this - insists that the publications they stole the material from should be PLEASED by the exposure on an extremist site. Understand, I'm not talking about excerpts or links, but reproduction of articles in their entirety.

The Toronto Star, for one, felt otherwise.

Fakename, think what the IOC does when a class of grade 3ers use their interlocking ring emblem. Same applies here, I think, if google were to take action (and they've been informed).

What home school did you go to?

That's how the game is played and your pederastic innuendo that attempts to impose libel chill won't change that.

BCL, your main post is confusing. It's the folks who live under rocks that Warman is suing, so surely they're aware of him, no?
