Hello Jan Smith:
In re: http://supremelaw.org/letters/amnesty.htm
Your company is listed in the WHOIS database as an
the agent responsible for Internet Domain KCTERA.NET.
Our documentary evidence shows that a valid link to
stolen and modified intellectual property was found
in July of 1998 at Internet URL:
A lawful NOTICE AND DEMAND was directed to
the Chief Executive Officer of TeraNet, Inc.
on July 11, 1998 (or thereabouts).
TeraNet failed to produce a certified copy of
any written authorization(s) by this Author
to promote stolen and modified copies of the
book "The Federal Zone" at the above web page.
(I never gave any such authorizations. I am the
Past evidence of once valid links constitutes
probable cause to charge the individual(s) involved
with criminal copyright infringement, because
they never paid for the work in question, and
they have thereby aided and abetted interstate
traffic in stolen property and falsely identified
the true origins of the modified, derivative files,
all in violations of the Copyright Act of 1976 and
of the Lanham Act (false designation of origin).
See 18 U.S.C. 2319 for the criminal penalties
for copyright infringement:
The Lanham Act authorizes an award of treble (triple)
damages. See 15 U.S.C. 1051 et seq. (uncodified).
Please review also the standards published by the
Software & Information Industry Association ("SIIA")
(formerly the Software Publishers Association)
to determine if you have any liability in this
matter, particularly as regards "shareware",
"indirect infringements", maintaining pirates
as ISP customers, and "linking".
The pertinent SIIA standards are found in documents
listed at the end of the Copyright Amnesty Program.
