Call To Action – Send a Message to the US Copyright Office (Gang Bang Virgins/Grand Slam), 12 Apr 12

Ever wanted to take some action against some Trolls and the Porn content owner making all that money?  Yes I know most of you would like to return the favor.  🙂

Well I have a little idea concerning the wonderful Plaintiff, K-Beech Inc.  He produces some fine titles such as “Virgins #4” and “Gang Bang Virgins.”  If you have not seen the recent activity concerning K-Beech and the above mentioned titles, please go over to the “Michigan” page at http://fightcopyrighttrolls.com/discussions/discussions-by-state/michigan/ and also read a recent post I made – https://dietrolldie.com/2012/04/02/single-pro-se-doe-makes-k-beech-troll-jason-kotzer-dismiss-him-with-prejudice-111-cv-02371-virgins-4-colorado/

Oops!  I Forgot to Mention It Was a Derived Work

It looks like the K-Beech business plan was to take previously copyrighted movie, purchase the rights to them and reissue them as new content – you can charge more for “New” content.  They did this will the above mentioned movies and applied for a “New” copyright.  The following screenshots from the US Copyright office (12 Apr 12) show the two movies this concerns – “Gang Bang Virgins” (K-Beech)  & “Grand Slam.” (Combat Zone).  Notice that no derived content is stated in Gang Bang Virgins.  Surprise Surprise

Problem is you can’t do that – fraudulent copyright.  So after being exposed, K-Beech (Via Troll Lipscomb) submitted a change (3 Apr 12) to the copyright registration for “Gang Bang Virgins,” admitting that they made a mistake in claiming it was an original work.  They admitted the main body of the work came from “Grand Slam” and the new work they added to it was “editing, production, and photographs.”  16-4  16-5  Here is the amended complaint filed in a Michigan court on 11 Apr 12 – 16-main

Nice try K-Beech and Troll Keith Lipscomb, but it still DOES NOT meet the requirements of a “Derivative Work” IAW US Copyright law.  Here is a cut/paste from the US Copyright handout on derivative works circ14:

To be copyrightable, a derivative work must differ sufficiently from the original to be regarded as a new work or must contain a substantial amount of new material. Making minor changes or additions of little substance to a preexisting work will not qualify a work as a new version for copyright purposes. The new material must be original and copyrightable in itself. Titles, short phrases, and formatting are not copyrightable.

Send a Message

What I would like everyone to do is this.  Go to the US Copyright page and send a message to them – http://www.copyright.gov/help/general-form.html

You just need to add your name (or John Doe alias), email address, and the following text.  Then hit send.

—————————————————————————–

Issue: Copyright Challenge – Derived work.

The movie “Gang Bang Virgins” (PA-1-757-963, date 24 Oct 11), K-Beech Inc., was registered as an original work, when in fact it is a copy of “Grand Slam” (PA-1-332-187, date 14 Jun 06), Combat Zone Inc.  On 3 Apr 12, K-Beech filed a correction to their copyright for Gang Bang Virgins, in which they claim the derived portion of the new movie are due to “editing, production, and photographs.”  These claimed new additions do not meet the requirement of copyright registration in accordance with US Copyright law – “To be copyrightable, a derivative work must differ sufficiently from the original to be regarded as a new work or must contain a substantial amount of new material. Making minor changes or additions of little substance to a preexisting work will not qualify a work as a new version for copyright purposes. The new material must be original and copyrightable in itself.”   

Please look into this matter as soon as possible, as this fraudulent copyright is being used in multiple federal law suits to force settlements from many people.

Thank you

John Doe

——————————————————

I’m hoping the US Copyright Office will look into this and make a ruling on this newly updated derived work.  I think we also need to come up with a plan to try to get an US Attorney interested in going after K-Beech for fraud on a massive multi-State level. 

More fun to come from this, I’m sure.  Got any ideas on what we can do, send me an email or post it.

    Here’s the response from the Copyright dudes:

    Among its other functions, the Copyright Office serves as an office of record, a place where claims to copyright are registered when the claimant has complied with the requirements of the copyright law. We are glad to furnish information about the provisions of the copyright law and the procedures for making registration, to explain the operations and practices of the Copyright Office, and to report on facts found in the public records of the Office. However, the Regulations of the Copyright Office (Code of Federal Regulations, title 37, chapter II) prohibit employees from giving specific legal advice on the rights of persons, whether in connection with particular uses of copyrighted works, cases of alleged foreign or domestic copyright infringement, contracts between authors and publishers, or other matters of a similar nature.

    The Copyright Office cannot:
    . compare for similarities copies of works deposited for registration;
    . advise on questions of possible copyright infringement or prosecution of
    copyright violations;
    . draft or interpret contract terms;
    . enforce contracts or recover manuscripts;
    . recommend particular publishers, agents, lawyers, “song services,” and the like;
    . help in getting a work published, recorded, or performed;
    . grant permission to use a copyrighted work. However, you may request a copy of m-10, How to Obtain Permissions, for information on getting permission to use a copyrighted work.

    Please note: Copyright registrations are part of the public record and are cannot be canceled, except by court order. You will want to read Section 201.7 of the Code of Federal Regulations (available here: http://www.access.gpo.gov/nara/cfr/waisidx_99/37cfr201_99.html) for complete information about cancellations.

    Many requests for assistance require professional legal advice, frequently that of a copyright attorney. Your local bar association may be able to recommend a copyright attorney. Even though the Copyright Office cannot furnish services of this kind, our policy is to be helpful in supplying authorized information and services.

    Raul are you starting a blog? If so, please post the address here so we may check it out. Thank all you guys for your time in this. I know it has helped a lot of people. You guys have created a more hostile environment for the trolls to operate in and you have really pissed off John Steele 🙂

    • Raul says:

      No as I think both DTD and SJD cover all the bases and I am a tech idiot. I just like to follow both blogs and put in my 2 cents (all the time it seems).

      • Raul says:

        Check out SJD’s blog tomorrow as I think I will have sent Buffy the Pirate Hunter into a tizzy. Next target, Troll Lipscomb.

  13. Doe1of18 says:

    At the least my case proves on record they were incorect on many levels.

  14. Doe1of18 says:

    Dear D,

    Application submissions are reviewed by registration specialists to ensure they contain a minimum amount of sufficient copyrightable content. If new or revised copyrightable content was included in a later version, a claim can be made and filed for the new added content, and the protection would extend only to the new or added content. Also, the titles of works are not protected by copyright. The Copyright Office is not an enforcement agency.

    My response from the Copyright Office.

  15. John Doe says:

    There should also be another template to send to PTA’s in Arizona complaining that there are porn companies like Hard Drive Productions and Lightspeed Media Corporation that film near schools. Along with beating them in court, I feel we should raise awareness to their communities, as a way to bring down their business.

  16. marcie says:

    I thought doing something like this would work… until I emailed several of the examining division directors regarding a similar matter and got responses from them saying that they are an agency of record only and that something like that needs to be taken up in court.
    I would hope that some IP attorneys would take on something like this since attorneys fees should be recoverable….

  17. trollgotnothingfromme says:

    I was apart of one of the Virgins 4 K-beech cases some time back. I noticed the trolls just recently stopped calling me. I wonder if this has any thing to do with it. 🙂
