What makes Brian Harrod so Brian Harrod?
You guys see that skateboarding dog yet?

Hey it's my iPhone's alarm clock ring tone! Did Apple pull a Brian Harrod? Actually this could be public domain like poor Mr. Screaming Wilhelm.
But that does beg the question: is everything on here public domain? I've mentioned it before but I did a bunch of the early lolcats back on 4chan, and somebody took the name and made a book and a website, and there's nothing a bunch of anon kids can do about it except for wish they'd thought of it first.
I'm pretty sure you forfeit your rights as soon as you call Caturday image macros "lolcats."
But I've been on 4chan 5 times in my life so what do I know?
I was young, man, and got I caught up with a bad crowd. :)
The question that's begged is one that has been asked before in other videos: is this kind of petty theft actually theft of intellectual property or are we just usernames and one step away from anonymous so it's ok to cut and paste legally, it's just an ethical line in the sand?
Personally, I would deny everything I have ever said on this site to God Alrighty with my last breath. Who would own up to this mess?
I think we just like making fun of the guy.
The answer to the question which was raised (not begged) is that, according to the DMCA, everything which is published (and that covers a wide range of things, including posting on an internet forum) is automatically covered by copyright law.
Trying to cite the DMCA as justification for going after Brian Harrod is the moral equivalent of citing National Socialist law in order to justify thrill-killing an entire family of Jews.

I was gone for a while, and I came back to find all this Brian Harrod-ness here. Not sure I really follow it.
Brian Harrod runs an online news mill. He is a janitor from New England. He has a disability. Most importantly, he steals poetv comments and links and posts them as his own.
He is also a convicted steroid peddler and is partly responsible for the Patriots having an asterisk next to their last Superbowl win.

I wish I could believe the Patriots thing is true, but I'm skeptical.
