Angry Dodgy cease and desist letter!

Here is the letter that I received earlier today:

Quote:
Dear PbNation, LLC,


It has come to my attention that you have made an unauthorized use of my copyrighted work dodgy.gif (http://imgs.pbnation.com/smilies/dodgy.gif) (the "Work") in the preparation of a work derived therefrom. I have reserved all rights in the Work, first published in 1999. Your work entitled dodgy.gif is essentially identical to the Work and clearly used the Work as its basis. Some unauthorized examples are, but not limited to:

http://www.pbnation.com/showthread.p...6#post20563566
http://www.pbnation.com/showpost.php...7#post18794687
http://www.pbnation.com/showpost.php...2#post18784402

As you neither asked for nor received permission to use the Work as the basis for dodgy.gif nor to make or distribute copies, including electronic copies, of same, I believe you have willfully infringed my rights under 17 U.S.C. Section 101 et seq. and could be liable for statutory damages as high as $150,000 as set forth in Section 504(c)(2) therein.

I demand that you immediately cease the use and distribution of all infringing works derived from the Work, and all copies, including electronic copies, of same, that you deliver to me, if applicable, all unused, undistributed copies of same, or destroy such copies immediately and that you desist from this or any other infringement of my rights in the future. If I have not received an affirmative response from you by 04/07/06 indicating that you have fully complied with these requirements, I shall take further action against you.

Very truly yours,

Charles Frasier
President, Smilies Direct

I can't believe this ****!

I've replied trying to get further information from this Frasier character but I've yet to get anything back. There is no way that we can afford to go to court about this! I talked to our attorney and his advice was a prompt removal of the "offending materials". Sorry guys, looks like dodgy is no more..... !@(*&!#%!@%

!!

Did it occur to anyone that this was posted RIGHT at 12:00 midnight? Making it very possible that it was April fools...

"Today, 12:00 AM"

I mean dodgy is obviously gone from the smile list, but probably not for long.
