still not in jail? I always wanted to know somebody on the inside
Wonder when Mr. Vertigo chimes in
I would go and get a lawyer immediately and I hope you have an LLC. Not only is this a very serious law in NY (I live here) but they can take a shit load of money for it. Seeing as how you have made part of $250,000 + while using his name he probably sees you as a large enough target to squeeze for money. Im not saying your guilty of anything, I am saying that because you are a big enough fish they are either going to sue you or make you an offer to settle ouf of court for $$$$.
I’m curious if any other authors got these, there are tons of people with sliders on CodeCanyon using the Ken Burns name.
When I first started slinging ads on Facebook it was around the time a lot of people got busted for using Oprah’s name in diet ads. She had nothing to do with the people or the product but because they used her name as if she somehow did, they were all found guilty. Some people even got fined into the millions. http://mashable.com/2009/08/21/oprah-lawsuit/
Thanks for your message Tyler.. I understand the risks, but how does this apply if i’m not a citizen of the US? I see only two options: either they come in my country to open a lawsuit against me, either my country extradites me so that i can go on a lawsuit in the US. Wouldn’t this be a bit too extreme in this case?
Anyway..i’m removing the file now
^ WTF? You have had the domain for 11 (eleven!!) years and you were committed to dropped it?
