APRIL 9, 2008: I received a threatening email from FRED WILHELMSWILHELMS claims to be an attorney and claims to represent Kevin.  In that email, WILHELMS claims that Kevin's two email messages (used for rebuttal, criticism, and comment on the Soul Survivor page) are "COPYRIGHTED".  WILHELMS claims I must "obtain permission" to use the two emails for the purposes stated.  WILHELMS further accuses me of "willful intent to invade my client’s rights of privacy".

WILHELMS' "client" has a visible internet presence, including his website, his location, his phone number, address, and directions to a bar he sings in weekly. 

I honestly doubt that I'm invading Kevin's "privacy" in any way.  Instead, I think he's invading his own privacy.

Other harassing, threatening emails were received from WILHELMS.

APRIL 11, 2008:  Phone calls were made to the Tennessee Board of Professional Responsibility for the Supreme Court, the Tennessee State Attorney's Office, and the Tennessee Attorney General's Office.  According to three Tennessee state government representatives:

"ATTORNEY" WILHELMS IS NOT A LICENSED ATTORNEY IN TENNESSEE

I have no idea if he's licensed in another state, or if he even has a law degree.

I only know what I was told by three Tennessee government officials.


"ATTORNEY" Wilhems' text is black

Steve Leigh's text is blue


The only modifications to the contents of this page include: removing excess blank space (line feeds), making dates and times bold, making my own text BLUE, and changing font style. The red text and screen capture from the Copyright Office (LETTER #5) are part of the original message.

            Re:       NOTICE OF COPYRIGHT INFRINGEMENT

 

Dear Mr. Leigh,

 

Please be advised I represent Mr. Kevin Kiley.

 

Mr. Kiley has brought to my attention the webpage entitled “Surviving The Soul Survivors” on your website.  The address of the webpage is

 

http://sl-prokeys.com/survive/survivor.htm .

 

In reviewing the contents of the webpage, I note that you have included the text of two emails from Mr. Kiley to you.  Mr. Kiley advises me that you did not ask for permission to post the emails on your webpage. 

 

Under current U.S. copyright law, Mr. Kiley retains all right to control distribution and dissemination of his writings, including but not limited to emails.  You have clearly violated these rights by republishing the emails on your webpage.

 

Demand is hereby made that you immediately take down the webpage in question and remove all the copyrighted material for which you have not received permission from my client to republish.  A failure to comply with this demand will be taken as willful, and I will advise my client regarding his future responses without any further notice to you.

 

In the event that futher legal recourse is necessary to protect Mr. Kiley's copyrights, an additional allegation will be made of your willful intent to invade my client’s rights of privacy by publishing his entire email address as part of the emails.  Needless to say, in this day and age of easy identity theft, your willingness to ignore my client’s interest in his privacy by not deleting the address in multiple cases, will not only amplify and underscore the seriousness of the infringement charges, but will equally reinforce the assertion that these actions in contradiction were intentional or made with willful indifference to my client's rights.

 

Your immediate compliance with this request is anticipated.

 

Sincerely,

 

Frederick Wilhelms III

Dear Mr. Leigh,
 
You are responsible for getting your own legal advice. I am Mr. Kiley's attorney, not yours.
 
17 USC 102 (a) attaches copyright protection to "original works of authorship fixed in any tangible medium of expression."  An email is such a medium of expression.  This statute establishes that your reposting of Mr. Kiley's email is infringement in his copyright interests in the emails in question. 
 
17 USC 106 (1) gives Mr. Kiley exclusive rights to control reproduction and public distribution of his own creations.  You have transgressed on those rights by putting his emails on your website without permission.  This statute gives Mr. Kiley the right to demand that you remove the emails from your website, as you have taken on yourself the right to reproduce and publically distribute his works, in contradiction of the law.
 
Furthermore, it has never been necessary to register a work and obtain what you refer to as a "certificate" to establish copyright.  Registration is required to bring suit to enforce the copyright.   As Mr. Kiley simply wishes you to remove the copyrighted emails from your website, the question of litigation is presently irrelevant as long as you comply with the demand.  His right to demand your compliance does not need a registration.  Your request for such "certificates" is groundless at this time. 
 
Please be aware that Mr. Kiley can register the works at any time, which will allow him to bring suit against you to end the infringement.  I can assure you that if that step is necessary, you will be provided evidence of the registration.  In anticipation of your next futile objection, the fact that Mr. Kiley would register the works after you posted them is no defense, because the copyright attached to the works as soon as he wrote them.  Perfecting his right to sue you for infringement is the only reason needed for registration.  I assure you that if refuse to take down the emails, and you force my client to register, he will be seeking more than simply removal of his emails, but will also seek statutory damages (which are awarded when the work is registered).  Such damages are, at the minimum, $750 per infringement, and up to $150,000 per infringement.  Mr. Kiley will also be entitled to recover attorney's fees and costs, and I assure you he will seek that compensation.
 
There are no "USCO regulations" that pertain to the rights that you are violating.  It is a matter of statute. 
 
For your edification, there are many cogent and coherent explanations of copyright law on the Internet.  One that deals well with issues regarding re-use of materials by websites can be found here:
 
 
Mr. Betts is not a lawyer, but he has gotten, and gives, good solid advice on the subject.  He makes it clear that you require permission to republish emails to avoid copyright problems.  We know you didn't ask for or get that permission from Mr. Kiley.
 
For a more technical discussion of the relevant law, I direct you to Ned Snow's article for the Kansas Law Review:
 
 
You do have to be a subscriber to SSRN to access the entire article, but I assure you that you will find it educational and enlightening as to the copyright treatment of email and private correspondence.  Ironically, because of copyright constraints, I am not at liberty to share the entire article with you.  I can tell you, however, that the article makes it crystal clear you have engaged in infringement, and continue to do so.
 
As to the email address issue, the simple fact is that you posted the entire address with a complete disregard to Mr. Kiley's rights of privacy.  As noted in my earlier correspondence, your actions go to show the willfulness of your actions, whether the address was active or not.  It's a subsidiary matter, but since it goes to intent, I think it might have an impact on the statutory damages awarded, if we have to go that far.  In very much the same way, your refusal to remove the emails, even temporarily, when you received the notice of infringement, demonstrates the same willfull nature of your acts.
 
In the P2pnet article you noted, there were no copyright infringement issues because Mr. Huey's initial remarks were posted to a blog, and my response was on the same blog.   The copyright law is clear that my quotes of his post, within the context of the same blog,  are covered in copyright law by a "limited implied license" regarding use of the original material in an ongoing public dialog.  You were not engaged in a public dialog with Mr. Kiley.  You took private emails and posted them without permission.  There is no "implied license," limited or otherwise, that covers your acts.  
 
Please review the statutes and commentary I have provided, and, at your earliest convenience, advise me of your intentions regarding removing Mr. Kiley's emails.  If I do not hear from you by the close of business on Friday, April 11, 2008, I will presume you are going to continue your willful infringement on my client's rights.  You have the right to pursue that conduct, but the right comes with substantial consequences.  I will advise Mr. Kiley on his options based on your response, or lack of same.

NOTICE OF COPYRIGHT INFRINGEMENT
Dear Mr. Leigh,
 
Please be advised I represent Mr. Kevin Kiley.

Mr. Kiley has brought to my attention the webpage entitled “Surviving The Soul Survivors” on your website.  The address of the webpage is

http://sl-prokeys.com/survive/survivor.htm
In reviewing the contents of the webpage, I note that you have included the text of two emails from Mr. Kiley to you.  Mr. Kiley advises me that you did not ask for permission to post the emails on your webpage.

Please forward any and all legal citations applicable to the requirement of your client's "permission" to reprint email sent to me.  I request specific links to the specific code section(s), published by the United States government. 
 
Under current U.S. copyright law, Mr. Kiley retains all right to control distribution and dissemination of his writings, including but not limited to emails.  You have clearly violated these rights by republishing the emails on your webpage.

Please forward all pertinent USCO (United States Copyright Office) regulations to substantiate this claim.  I am requesting specific links to the specific code section(s).  I further request scanned copies of the original copyright certificates, issued by the USCO (United States Copyright Office), concerning the aforementioned "copyrighted" emails.
 
Demand is hereby made that you immediately take down the webpage in question and remove all the copyrighted material for which you have not received permission from my client to republish.  A failure to comply with this demand will be taken as willful, and I will advise my client regarding his future responses without any further notice to you.
In the event that futher legal recourse is necessary to protect Mr. Kiley's copyrights, an additional allegation will be made of your willful intent to invade my client’s rights of privacy by publishing his entire email address as part of the emails.

Having received emails from your client within the past 24 hours, I believe the email address on my webpage is obsolete and invalid.  If you have any valid proof that your client's current email address is kkiley
@home.com, as shown on my website, I will protect your client's privacy by removing the email address.
 
Needless to say, in this day and age of easy identity theft, your willingness to ignore my client’s interest in his privacy by not deleting the address in multiple cases, will not only amplify and underscore the seriousness of the infringement charges, but will equally reinforce the assertion that these actions in contradiction were intentional or made with willful indifference to my client's rights.

Please read the above paragraph.
 
Your immediate compliance with this request is anticipated.

Upon receipt of (1) proof of lawful copyright certificates, (2) applicable USCO code sections published links, and (3) requested citations, I will consult with my attorney regarding this issue.  We are eager - and willing - to resolve any misunderstandings or conflicts which may exist.

Your full and immediate compliance with my requests will ensure that your client's rights (if they exist) will be honored.

Thank you in advance for your cooperation.

Steve Leigh

Just for fun, we're going to find out, since he's authorized me to go ahead and register the emails.  And because the words you're concerned with were a quote, there's no real problem for Mr,. Kiley.  Nobody at the Copyright Office reads the stuff that's submitted.
 
Since it appears to be my task to teach you Copyright law, you are not in compliance with Section 107, and it is going to cost you a bundle in legal fees to find that out.  Google "fair use is just a defense,"

Title 17 USC - Section 107 .... I'm in full compliance.
Just for fun, could you imagine Mr. Kiley applying for copyright to two emails in which he refers to "nigger music"?

I received your email.  This is not to be worried about.  Mr Wilhelms will not be conversing with you again.

You still need to file a complaint with Unauthorized Practice of Law with the Attorney General’s Office-Consumer Affairs.

(WILHELMS' first message, LETTER #1, was reprinted here)

Below, "ATTORNEY" WILHELMS claims he "straightened them out."  Exactly 10 minutes after he "straightened them out", he wrote the following email. 

I asked "ATTORNEY" WILHELMS if I could forward his threatening emails to the FBI, my attorney, etc.  Apparently, that question constitutes a "harassment campaign", (he can't spell it properly) and there will be "consequences".

Get your own legal advice. 
 
I've already heard from the local Board of Professional Responsibility and straightened them out.  If you want to continue your harrassment campaign, feel free, but remember there will be consequences.

That includes my attorney, the FBI, USCO, and the legal administrator of my website - right?

In addition to "ATTORNEY" WILHELMS' other threats, his "CONFIDENTIALITY NOTICE" is also a threat.  It is a clear violation of my Constitutional right to seek legal counsel.

"ATTORNEY" WILHELMS' harassing, threatening messages are being copied, reprinted, forwarded, and distributed in any way I determine. 

If "ATTORNEY" WILHELMS thinks that I'm going to ignore requests for his emails from the Tennessee Attorney General's Office and several other government offices, he's badly mistaken.

It's clear that the copyright laws of the United States allow me to copy and rebut Kevin's emails for the purposes stated.  I believe I have done exactly that.  I believe I'm in full compliance with the laws of this country.
