News Herald Squeals Copyright Infringement: We respond “FAIR USE”

Coeymans Clowns are Everywhere!

Kate Lisa of the Ravena News Herald and Capital Region Independent Media is on a mission to get the Fiends’ of Coeymans faces off this site. She’s screaming copyright violation and claiming photoshopping! She’s demanding the images be removed. Our contributor responded to her piggy squeals in no uncertain terms: he told her to “To take a walk.”

“Take down those pictures!” cried Kate.

The site where some images appear showing the mugs of the “Fiends of Coeymans” is on an Internet page Groups Fight For Town Respect, Transparency — similar to those we display in one of our exposés — and there’s not a single copyright statement or notice anywhere on that page. We’d like readers to go to the link above and see for themselves. But we do caution you to understand that Kate Lisa and the Ravena News Herald are making heroes out of haters. Kate Lisa works for the Ravena News Herald, which is owned by Capital Region Independent Media, which is owned by Mark Vinciguerra, who is owned by George McHugh, who is owned by Carver Laraway

We saw through Kate Lisa’s unfriendly demands, and are not deterred by her contacting their attorney. He’ll pee down our leg and tell us it’s ice water; then he’ll take their retainer money. Idiots! We claim the protection of the doctrine of Fair Use, and have a sound basis in law to defend our use, since we are commenting and parodying the image and the subjects of the image, Jeff LaQuire, Nate Boomer, and Chris Hagen, who call themselves “Friends of Coeymans””, and whom we claim are being painted in a falsely positive light by George McHugh’s people at the Ravena News Herald. If you find a copyright notice on that page, please let us know. Our point: If you want to claim a copyright you should provide due notice of copyright or at least place a © on the material. Right? The law may not require that but why not do it if you’re so concerned? In order to bring an action at law for infringement, they’d have to have registered the copyright. Doesn’t matter though, because we claim Fair Use. If Kate Lisa still feels like her handler’s been abused, poor little piggy, maybe she can get McHugh to write a letter for her.

Our parody and commentary on the so-called “Friends of Coeymans” is well founded given their Facebook antics and their disruption of public meetings. They seem to hate anything better looking than they are, smarter than they are, less porky than they are, and better smelling than they are. That  doesn’t leave much, and it leaves a lot of hating for them to accomplish but they’re working really hard at it.

Sorry, Kate, it’s all in the spirit of good fun. Get a grip!

A Friend of Coeymans had Kate Lisa tattooed on his brain.
Yer lookin’ good, Katie!
