War on Freedom is underway....

PostBy: Black_And_Blue On: Sun Jul 25, 2010 9:45 am

Anyone reading the news this week has seen the calls to shut down bloggers, well the war on Freedom is underway :


On July 21st, The Armed Citizen received an indirect and informal notice of a lawsuit against this website and its owners, David Burnett and Clayton Cramer.

The suit, reportedly filed in US District Court on July 20th, alleges that The Armed Citizen and its owners “willfully copied” and infringed on original source content from the Las Vegas Review-Journal.

According to news reports, Righthaven LLC has filed lawsuits against no less than 80 other political websites and individual blogs for “infringement.”

Yes I also seen the same warning on an LCP gun site I frequent. What do they hope is the outcome? Who do they sue you or the individual that posted such material? November can't come soon enough!!

We do live in interesting times. This is nothing new - the writing has been on the wall for a long time. What do you think the Freedom Of Information Act is all about? I heard it said the other day that in 2 years slightly less then 50% of the US will wake up to find themselves living in France and then wonder how they got there. All I can say is stop ignoring what's going on - stop with the "no worries" and get involved to the greatest extent possible. Get to know your local candidates, knock on doors, make calls - you can make a difference. Your liberty is on the line. The question is are we going to fight or let it happen. Lisa

Restoring Honor - 8/28/10. http://www.glennbeck.com/828/

I was trying like hell to get my ass down there, but it's looking like it's not going to happen for me. Escrow on the mortgage just went up AGAIN due to TAXES. :mad:

The dems just sealed their fate with this bullshit. I don't think they have the slightest clue how pissed off most of the country is at them. They just look at all the left wingers at their pep rallies & think this is what everyone wants. :sick: I KNEW they were going to try to turn the country into Massachusetts!!! :mad3: :mad2:

I just saw an article that the Dems are going to pretend they like guns for a while (until Nov 3) and give some lip service to the 2nd amendment folk ion order to hedge their bets in Nov.

When they repeal the Chicago and DC handcuffs ill believe them

It appears that this lawsuit is about copyright infringement. Not just to shut down a particular website. Copy righted information is protected by law and violations are subject to court action no matter who the sources and the violators are.

According to a couple of blogs, the law firm that is basically running the shutting down of blogs over copyright laws is the same one at which Michelle Obama and Victoria Espinel worked.

ETA : link http://www.nndb.com/company/955/000122589/ 7th name on the list (White House Copyright Czar)

See any other names you might recognize ?

Seems like an attempt to quiet the troublemakers to me...


Righthaven has offered no prior contact, cease-and-desist warnings or any attempt at good-faith resolution whatsoever.

The “offending” entries reprinted on The Armed Citizen consist of six stories originating from the Las Vegas Review-Journal. There are several mitigating factors to consider:

•The Armed Citizen has posted nearly 4,700 such stories from a plethora of sources.

•Some of the stories were short enough to qualify under the Fair Use Rule, even disregarding that the goal of this website is academic, informational and in the public interest, not commercial.

•The stories – which were also properly cited and attributed – are still publicly available on the Las Vegas Review-Journal’s website.

•Some of these stories were posted on the website as far back as six years ago.
