Today we will continue on with the post from yesterday regarding the anti-vaccinationists attempt to silence Reasonable Hank. As we stated, we were supplied with 103 screenshots covering the entirety of the post and the subsequent conversation.
Our anna was heavily involved in the discussion, showing her skillz in so many areas.
Today we would like to look at our anna’s legal skillz.
Our anna has attempted to have her own words removed from the Reasonable Hank website before.
Here our anna has tracked Reasonable Hank as far as the hosting company (VentraIP) and has sent a take down request to them.
The first thing we note is that our anna is claiming to be a company who owns the copyright of what she posts. Our anna refers to her ‘personal account’ as the location of where Reasonable Hank got her copyrighted information from.
Now, we had here at SGFTVOCAP/S headquarters were a little confused by this. Is our anna a company, or a person? How can what our anna claims is her personal account be a company account?
So we looked. None of our anna’s facebook accounts are identified as being business accounts. None list a business name, or an Australian Business Number (ABN) on them.
So we dug a little deeper and discovered that our anna did have an ABN (40795873724) and at the time of her complaint to VentraIP our anna’s ABN was active. But it was cancelled 6 days later, on the 6th of September 2016..
Does this make any post that our anna makes a business notification? Can a business claim Child Care Benefit (CCB) from the Australian Government?
Secondly our anna claims that the copyrighted article/photos that Reasonable Hank used came from her personal account. Yet it is clear from the screenshots used by Reasonable Hank that the information came from posts our anna put on facebook groups. The identified article on Reasonable Hank references a post from the facebook group Anti-Vaccination Australia. Is our anna claiming that this group is also part of her ‘company’?
When you publish content or information using the Public setting, it means that you are allowing everyone, including people off of Facebook, to access and use that information, and to associate it with you (i.e., your name and profile picture).
We do note that the message sent by our anna to VentraIP pre-dates the 31st of August 2016. Yet here we are 4 months later and the posts on the Reasonable Hank website still exist four months later. We wonder how the take down request is going?
UPDATE: We are always interested by the feedback we get from our readers.
This link was sent to us. we wonder what our anna would say about WordPress winning damages against a fraudulent take down demand by what the writer referred to as a DMCA take down abuser.
