I'm very interested to see how Myspace responds to the letter below sent to their copyright agent. Will they enforce their terms and conditions? Will this Chad Ronning fellow stop stealing my material? Will the 4 people who read his site wonder where all his blog entries went?
I'll let you know if I get a response.
I am the copyright holder of all materials published on www.angryman.ca

some of the content of which has been re-published word-for-word on Myspace at http://www.myspace.com/cronning
without proper citation, without approval by me, and without attempt to contact me requesting approval.
Specifically, the entire text of blog entries dated October 2, 2006; July 26, 2006; July 23, 2006; July 1, 2006; June 8, 2006; and June 6, 2006 reproduce word-for-word entries from my web page http://www.angryman.ca/rants.html
