Albero has his panties in a twist again because someone (me) borrowd one of his precious photographs. An unlawful photo I might add. In the comment section of one of his post titled "The Joke of the Year" he states in part:
.....Joe Perdue is on notice. Should he do it one more time he'll find himself in court and facing a jury because I will not allow him defaming me and lying to the public as well as stealing my photos regularly.
This is not the first time Albero has threatened me with a lawsuit. To the best of my recollection he has also made similar threats to Gunpowder, Straight shooter, Tom Cat, and recently Bud the Blogger. The biggest difference between me and these other bloggers is simply that he knows my name and he uses it any chance he gets in order to augment his swaggering. So be it.
The legality of his photos may be debatable on Alberos part, but check over on "Off the Cuff" and see what the Maryland Board of Elections has to say about cameras and electronic devices in the polling places.
Who has lied any more than Albero? His half truths and out right falshoods about the fire department alone are enough for him to earn the big "L" moniker.
So far as me defaming him, no one has done any more defaming than he. The list of people he has defamed is quite extensive as evidenced in his archieves. Finally, I fail to see why questioning the legality of two of his pathectic photographs constitutes "Stealing Regularly", since his posts are full of copywrited material on a much more extensive level than mine.
If this is his idea of "regular" than he may need more fiber in his diet.
I borrowed the following from Bud the Blogger over at "The No BS Zone":
§ 107. Limitations on exclusive rights: Fair useNotwithstanding the provisions of sections 106 and 106A, the fair use of a copyrighted work, including such use by reproduction in copies or phonorecords or by any other means specified by that section, for purposes such as criticism, comment, news reporting, teaching (including multiple copies for classroom use), scholarship, or research, is not an infringement of copyright. In determining whether the use made of a work in any particular case is a fair use the factors to be considered shall include—
(1) the purpose and character of the use, including whether such use is of a commercial nature or is for nonprofit educational purposes;
(2) the nature of the copyrighted work;
(3) the amount and substantiality of the portion used in relation to the copyrighted work as a whole; and
(4) the effect of the use upon the potential market for or value of the copyrighted work.The fact that a work is unpublished shall not itself bar a finding of fair use if such finding is made upon consideration of all the above factors.
Kindly be sure to show this to your lawyer before he contacts me Albero. He should have all the facts for the jury.
And finally---Thanks to all for offering to contribute to my defense fund. I'll be in touch. LOL
