Linda Ellis and John W. Jolin - Extortion Letters - Target Exposes Scheme

LINDA ELLIS COPYRIGHT

This victim did not allow himself to be intimidated. He immediately made the scam public and shared the extortion letters sent by John W. Jolin acting Linda Ellis's representative. It is important to note that JohnW. Jolin is not an attorney and that the content in the letters is false. Linda Ellis has never sued anyone for sharing The Dash online. She only THREATENS to sue. Don't be fooled. Read on...

In April of 2015 John W. Jolin sent a letter demanding money from someone who shared The Dash on a blog meant to inspire others. John W. Jolin is the thug & copyright troll Linda Ellis uses scare the bejesus of her fans who share The Dash. Linda Ellis has successfully collected millions of dollars (according to her own words "99.99% pay me"). In 2011, Linda Ellis sent April Brown the same string of letters. Instead of cowering or paying of the copyright troll Brown exposed the scheme and continues to shed a bright light on Linda Ellis' operation. Brown wrote a book "Poetic Justice, The True Story Behind The Dash and One Victim's Mission to End Copyright Extortion and Bullying". www.getpoeticjustice.com. Since 2012, Brown's advice and exposure has saved 256 people from Paying off Linda Ellis. Based on direct contacts made by targets and victims, it appears as if only 8 people have paid Ellis's extortion demands in 4 years. There may be many more who have been saved or paid. If you have been targeted and victimized contact April Brown via Get Poetic Justice. www.getpoeticjustice.com for more information. Help us put this copyright troll out of business for good.

Mr. Barberini,

Just to be clear our settlement offer is in lieu of filing suit in federal court and pursuing statutory damages. Statutory damages are a damage award in civil law, in which the amount awarded is stipulated within the statute rather than being calculated based on the degree of harm to the plaintiff. Lawmakers will provide for statutory damages for acts in which it is difficult to determine a precise value of the loss suffered by the victim. Because of the ease of infringement, federal law authorizes copyright owners, like Ms. Ellis, to recover statutory damages of up to $30,000.00 for each copyright violation in addition to the recovery of all attorneys’ and costs involved in pursuing the copyright violation. 17 U.S.C. §§ 504(c)(1) and 505.  If a court determines the infringement intentional or “willful,” the law authorizes a court to award statutory damages of up to $150,000.00 per copyright violation.  17 U.S.C. § 504(c)(2).

We do not enjoy lawsuits and hope to not have to resort to the courts; however, Ms. Ellis has proven that she has, and will, protect the value and integrity of her copyrighted works.  In the case of Ellis v. Aronson, filed in the Northern District of Georgia, Ms. Ellis received a judgment the amount of $269,000.00.

Ms. Ellis is prepared to file a lawsuit in Federal Court if we cannot reach a resolution..

We hope that you share our desire to avoid the costs and expenses of litigation and come to a resolution of this matter.  If so, contact us immediately or remit payment to Linda’s Lyrics, LLC to resolve this matter.

Sincerely,
