FIGHTING CRIME IS A DIRTY BUSINESS!


The Mayor: I don't want any more trouble like you had last year in the Fillmore district. Understand? That's my policy.

Harry Callahan: Yeah, well, when an adult male is chasing a female with intent to commit rape, I shoot the bastard. That's my policy.

The Mayor: Intent? How did you establish that?

Harry Callahan: When a naked man is chasing a woman through an alley with a butcher knife and a hard-on, I figure he isn't out collecting for the Red Cross.


Since I have publicly published my efforts to fight back against the injustice of an entity like our Ebay Wise to do me harm and cause me stress, I have come to the attention of many people that support my methods, others that do not and still others that are vacillating between both camps. I appreciate the feedback and take any and all criticism with an objective mind - but I do not respond well to demands - especially those made by people who hide behind aliases.

I am Dave Wohlman. My blog is called Radio Free Wohlman. My email address is posted on this blog. A simple search will uncover my address. You can use that information to get an aerial picture of my house, a copy of my wedding certificate or a long list of other available information about me. That is the world we live in - like or hate it. The point is I am available and answer to my own name.

I spent a long while last night replying to one of my commenter's, but thought it very important that I put it on the front page for all to see - rather than tuck it away in the comment section. You can read their thoughts there if you would like - here are mine:

Many of the points you have made are convincing and many are not.

Your assumptions and statement are opinions much less based on facts than my speculations - which are based on solid association and obvious possible motive.

My naming this person or anyone else on this blog who has a proven history of utilizing a DMCA complaint and a potential connection is not illegal, unethical or immoral in any way.

It certainly has nothing in common with an entity that files scores of unauthorized legal forms and commits perjury in doing so.

In all forms of effective journalism, investigation and law enforcement, suspected wrong-doers are identified and scrutinized. The innocent have nothing to fear, prove that innocence and clear their name. Sometimes you have to play hardball to eliminate the innocent and weed out the guilty.

If this person would care to communicate with me and/or it is proven to me that they are not involved in the described activity, I will use my platform to declare my findings just as clearly as I stated my suspicions.

I stand behind my statements - especially in the described environment we are faced with. One in which accused people are penalized prior to their ability to explain to, defend against or even determine the name of their accuser.

I did indeed edit my earlier post and it was in-part because of your contribution. I asked for the RFW Family's thoughts on the matter because I do indeed respect dialogue from you and others with perspectives of their own. But I have no obligation other than to consume the information and opinions and decide if all, some or none of it will be adopted by me.

You obviously enjoy writing and seem to be articulate, intelligent and passionate - so if you feel so strongly - rather than commenting on my blog as an Anonymous One, start your own blog, use your actual name and stand behind the principles that you believe are right.

My goal is not to be your or any one's hero. Nor did I aspire to start a crusade. I enjoy creating my RFW Transmissions. This came to me unsolicited and unwanted. I will comply with any authorized complaint, be 100% transparent and continue to speak from my heart!

I appreciate your participation in this forum and wish you the best.

A POSSIBLE LEAD!

If you visit chillingeffects.com - a clearing house for DMCA complaints (authorized or unauthorized) and do a search for Chappell you will find 118 complaints.

http://www.chillingeffects.org/dmca512c/search.cgi

I have reached out to Chappell Music.

If you look at the individual complaints you will see that many if not most of them were filed by the soon-to-go-down Ebay Wise!

In fact, 13 of the 14 DMCA notices in that search filed in 2011 as of today are the work of this vile entity Ebay Wise who has filed numerous unauthorized DMCA complaints on behalf of Varese Sarabande and laugh.com.
(others may soon be added to this list). 

But if you look at the DMCA complaint dated March 4th, 2011, you will see that it was filed by

In this claim, which was made against bestcomedyonline.com, Georgiana-Adrianna Voicu claims
(and this is a direct quote from the DMCA complaint)


"On October 14, 2010, the webmaster I've been working with, by the name [redacted], stole my passwords and transferred , without my authorization, the domain http://www.bestcomedyonline.com/ from my name to his name".
 
I have also reached out to bestcomedyonline.com to get more info!

Let's review the facts:
 
Ebay Wise has filed at least 160 DMCA complaints to Google.
 
50 of them have been declared unauthorized by representatives of the companies
named in the complaints.
 
13 of these unauthorized DMCA complaints by Ebay Wise were on behalf of laugh.com.
 
Now we find out that Georgiana-Adriana Voicu once owned bestcomdyonline.com
and has an axe to grind!
 
Is this a coincidence - maybe. 
 
Circumstantial evidence - certainly.
 
 
I am not trying to create a witch hunt - but all of this information is posted on the internet and all of my speculations are not an infingement on anyone's rights.
 
With all due respect and no malice torwards this particular or any Georgiana - Adriana Voicu - I am not stating with fact that this person is Ebay Wise and I have been forwarded very complleing logic  from fellow bloggers that feel it probably is not:

  - The DMCA complaint referenced by Voicu that comes up in Chappell is actually caused by a reference to Dave Chappelle.

But in this guilty until proven innocent enviornment - every suspect can and will be put under the microscope.
What do you think?

Let me know - do what you can - the blog you save may be your own!

Dave RFW


NOW LISTEN!

With a trained ear tuned into your comments and email, I have come to the realization that the RFW Transmissions are mostly listened by you via the divShare player and not downloaded via the link. So as an experiment, I am going to slightly change our regular set up.

The most recent Transmissions can still be heard using the divShare player on the bottom of the post! You can't download from divShare.

Most of the links in red on the Transmission are old and non-functioning. Try it - if it works - great! If it doesn't and you want a copy of any show on the blog - just send me a quick email with the Transmission name and your email address. I will send you the download link asap (even you Ebay Wise)!

Come to think of it - this is a great way for us to communicate more often.

Thanks for your ears!

A DIRECT OPEN LETTER TO EBAY WISE!

Your scam has been exposed and your unauthorized self-ordained position as spokesperson and enforcer on behalf of people that do not know you or want to know you will soon come to an end!

It has already been established that the DMCA complaints you have made on behalf of Varese Sarabande are illegal. That is 37 instances of perjury that could and might be filed against you. The lawyers at Varese Sarabande are now in possession of all of this information and I hope that they prosecute you to the full extent of their rights and ability!

It has also been confirmed that the 13 uncovered DMCA complaints you have made on behalf of laugh.com have been filed without knowledge or authorization of that compnany. Thay are now very aware of your existance.

I have actually uncovered over 160 DMCA complaints you have made as Ebay Wise or Ebay_Wise  since 2009 against various people on behalf of Varese Sarabande, Chappell & Co. who is actually Warner/Chappell Music, Laugh.com, JudyHenke.com and Karla Bonoff. Their licensing departments have all been contacted in the hope that that they too will prosecute you for any illegal activity for which you might be guilty.

You've been a busy miscreant!

I have contacted the blog owners that you have wrongfully named in the illegal and unauthorized DMCA complaints and together we have and will continue to make numerous complaints about you to Blogger/Google, DMCA officials, Chilling Effects, the companies you claim to represent and legal council as to expose your true identity and start the process to bring possible legal proceedings against you for any/all possible offenses you have made against us and the companies you have fraudulently represented with your apparent acts of perjury.

It is obvious that you have now reverted to desperate acts of irritation and retaliation such as making complaints to divShare and Multiupload about RFW files that are not mentioned in any existing DMCA complaints. I have reported your illegal activity to them as well.

If my files are taken down - I will replace them  
If I lose this blog - I will replace it.

The worst thing that could happen is that I lose my ability to present RFW to my extended music family.
I do not fear legal retribution because I am willing and able to comply with any authorized request to Cease and Desist. I am transparent, available and ready to communicate with any person trying to make contact with me.

On the other hand, you have already committed many unethical, illegal and potentially damaging acts. Any additional activity that is eventually traced back to you (and it will) will only add to your well deserved prosecution. I will gladly testify.

I will play this game with you head on for as long as it takes. It is now my mission to see you go down.

You can not take away my birthday, my morals, my friends, my family or my pride - so bring it on!

You have decided to screw with the wrong person.

THE PLOT THICKENS!


An open letter to Google, Blogger, the entity known as Ebay Wise and all of the
Radio Free Wohlman Family

We have now been served with another underserved and unauthorized DMCA complaint
(our second in two consecutive weeks).

Upon further investigation, the entity who goes by Ebay Wise who has has most recently submitted two DMCA complaints against Radio Free Wohlman on behalf of Varese Sarabande Records is unknown by the the Vice President of Sales of Varese Sarabande - Byron Davis (who was a very understanding and helpful).

Ebay Wise has made 37 DMCA complaints against various blogs on behalf of Varese Sarabande since January of 2010, none of which were authorized by Varese Sarabande.

By the detailed comments made in the various DMCA complaints http://www.chillingeffects.org/dmca512c/search.cgi - it is obvious that this person (Ebay Wise) is on some type of a self-empowered mission.

The fact of the matter is that this person is not the copyright owner, nor are they authorized to represent Varese Sarbande.

Mr. Davis at Varese Sarabande will explain this to Google/Blogger if someone would reach out to him.

In the meantime, what tools do I and Varese Sarabande have at our disposal to initiate an investigation into the identity of Ebay Wise and to discredit all future DMCA complaints from this person as being illegal and unauthorized?

It would seem that the complaint must contain contact information - is it not feasible to make contact to substantiate this persons validity?

The law must work both ways - how do I complain against the complaintant? Should not this person be exposed as being involved in the serious illegal offense of perjury?

I appreciate the blog space and great system that Blogger has set up and I will do anything to be in compliance of any authorized DMCA complaint - but the process is being manipulated by Ebay Wise and who knows how many others on a self-righteous quest.

Now is the time to step up - please help in any way you can!

RFW SPEAKS!

I WILL NOT SHUP UP OR SHUT DOWN (WITHOUT A FIGHT)!

After receiving the first DMCA complaint in RFW's four year history, I thought long and hard about why I take the time out of my already very busy life to run Radio Free Wohlman. It does not matter that the complaint seems to be bogus. The very fact that there is a process in place which any person with too much time on their hands or misguided wisdom can utilize to cause the removal of one of my Transmissions is unthinkable.

Looking back at the amazing foresight of our forefathers, America was based on a number of guaranteed freedoms - which includes freedom of the press. Through time, fear has always been the stimulus that dictates censorship:

 - books will take away our ability to talk
 - theater will take away our ability to read books
 - movies will take away our ability to enjoy theater
 - television will keep people out of the movie theaters
 - video tapes will stop people from watching network television
 - cable/satellite television will drive people away from networks
 - dvd's will take people out of video stores
 - movie backup software will stop people from buying dvd's

The same hysteria applies to music:

- professional musicians will eliminate family sing-alongs
- radio and records will kill the live music business
- tape recorders will destroy the radio and record industries
- cd recorders will eliminate cassette production
- mp3s will replace compact discs

The fact of the matter is that like in nature, it is a world in which only the strongest species survive. Badly managed/priced companies and products, along with antiquated technology is replaced by advancement. Products are abandoned for new services. People are either jubilant about the progress or nostalgic for good-old-days-when....

The people most vocal about the change are usually those that stand to lose money. Greed is what gives birth to this particular form of fear and that in-turn creates the mechanics of censorship.

I, like a majority of music blog producers, love music. Radio Free Wohlman is a labor of love dedicated to expressing that love, exposing these artists and stimulating sales for them in any way I can. The day that artists, record companies, publishing companies, internet companies, or the government interferes with our ability to play each other music by whatever means are available is the day the music officially dies.

To legislate to silence , retaliate against and designate as offenders, bloggers - who are among the most effective promoters of these same artists and therefore a very valuable tool for these companies to make their desired dollar - is not only wrong it is downright stupid. And such stupidity paves the way for their rapid demise like the dinosaurs they now resemble.

If one day you visit Radio Free Wohlman and it is gone, you will know why. But I truly believe that change is inevitable and that anything worthwhile is worth fighting for. You cannot become stronger by remaining silent to injustice.

I would rather be remembered for for my past attempts to be true to my ideals, than to remain neutered by censorship.

My hope is that these words will inspire you and future generations of  innovators to not let the spark of creativity and your love for music be snuffed out by those who fear you and your ideas.

I will not shut up or shut down (without a fight)!
