Upon reading our Emails we were shocked to find that our video on our YouTube page had been removed for apparent copyright infringement. However, we were not shocked to find that the person who filed the false copyright notice to YouTube was none other than Marshall Masters of yowusa.com (Your Own Books, Inc.) Image below.
Our response to you Mr. Masters is this, filing false copyright notices against people is illegal and you will be held accountable for your actions. We are now in the process of filing a counter claim because there was nothing in our video that belonged to you, it was a video simply promoting our blog sites. But because our site is dedicated to exposing scammers, fraudsters and fear mongerers such as yourself, you took it upon yourself to try and get rid of the people who expose your lies by breaking the law, something we have proof of you doing to other users on YouTube we might add. Also you can try and get our blogs removed if you wish, we have everything backed up, posts, comments etc so every blog of ours you remove another three will take its place. YouTube will also see that you had no right to get our promotional video taken down so lets hope they’ll see that and suspend your account for false copyright infringement. Shame on you Mr. Masters.
UPDATE: We decided not to pursue this matter. Not because we wouldn’t have had the video put back up, but because we believe the copyright claim by Marshall Masters was a futile ‘bait’ attempt to gather personal information about us to add to his laughable FatwaForProfit article he wrote when repeated diehard attempts to get our blogs removed failed. Naturally this annoyed him to boiling point and he decided to publish his OTT article with all kinds of malicious accusations. Yes, when our blog was first up and running we had a column called ‘Faces of Evil’ with pictures of these charlatans on it. When people spread lies and fear about this 2012/Nibiru doomsday BS, scaring and corrupting the minds of young people by basically saying billions of us are going to die just so they can line their pockets by selling useless Survival Guides, or when you get demented fruit loops like Nancy Lieder convincing people to kill their pets before the 2003 Pole Shift, we believe we were more than justified to call these people evil and have their mugshots up on our blog at the time. The article Marshall Masters wrote on us proved nothing apart from showing what a slimey individual he really is. We have no idea what he is beating his chest about by showing we are from the UK, which isn’t the case. This blog is maintained by a number of people who are close friends and family who are from the UK, Europe, USA and Australia, all of which also have access to our YouTube channel. If we wanted to hide the UK location on our screen cap above we would have done so before posting it! No ‘Smoking Gun’ here, just a link on a screen cap everyone can see. Duh! His article does prove one thing though, and that’s the obvious effect our blog had on him. We’re not a huge blog, and if the “traffic to their blog is falling” as he puts it, why did he feel the need to write a four page article on us? Truth hurts I guess and when WordPress and Blogger basically tell you to get lost for filing false reports to get blogs removed he had to sweat over his keyboard for an hour or two writing an article. WordPress and Blogger aren’t like YouTube Marshall, you can’t just go around filing false claims left right and centre and get away with it. Briefly going back to the first point, not that it matters to us anyway, our blog traffic is rapidly increasing. Since April 2009 we have been averaging around 600 hits per month, which we think aint bad. But even if only one person per day visited our blog we’d be happy. Of course Marshall Masters worries about traffic, he has 2012 books, home study CDs and subscriptions to sell. So of course people like him will see red when they stumble upon blogs like ours. Also, what Marshall Masters has achieved by registering the domain names yowcrooks.com, yowcrooks.net, yowcrooks.org, yowcrooks.info and yowcrooks.biz and linking them all to his trashy article is beyond us. Just him throwing his toys out of his pram perhaps? It doesn’t annoy us in the slightest, and going back to the last point once again it has in fact pushed more traffic our way. It’s nice to see this is what he’s spending your money on! Another reason this blog was set up was kind of like a stepping stone to a fully fledged website, which will be coming in the very near future. If Marshall Masters thought we were going to call it yowcrooks.com or one of the other domains then he thought wrong. It will be called something much more appealing 🙂 Finally we had to laugh when Marshall was trying to take all the credit for the SOHO images debunking. With his permission, we used an article Phil Plait of Bad Astronomy wrote back in 2005, that’s right 2005. Marshall’s article was written in March 2009. We used Plait’s article because it was 100% relevant to the newest wave of ‘Nibiru SOHO Images’ to hit many conspiracy and video websites and Plait used images from SOHO that showed the exact same ‘anomaly’. Sorry, Marshall, but you failed in trying to steal Plait’s thunder. He debunked the images first in 2005, not you in 2009. Oh and before we forget, thank you, Marshall, for calling us “UK pricks”, you really don’t like the United Kingdom very much do you? Seeing this written in his article was a prime example of Marshall Master’s showing his true colours.
