- More About Copyright from Linda Ellis

April Brown - Investigative Reporter

If you follow this blog then you are familiar with the scores of attacks, Linda Ellis – Author Speaker Poet, has made on my social media accounts. On Memorial Day 2016, she bought another Google Adwords campaign this time the Adwords she chose are “April Brown Auctioneer”. This is nothing new. Since I started the BEWARE DON’T SHARE public service campaign in 2012 Ellis has bought many Google Adwords as April Brown. And she's pulled more uninspiring stunts like filing False DMCA Takedown notices repeatedly on my videos, blogs, websites and complaints to Google, Squarespace, Wordpress. Later attempts to get my content removed failed so she switched to buying Google Ads. I don’t know how many times she’s bought Google Adwords but she’s alerted me to at least five campaigns since 2012. 

Linda has at least two faces, she may have many more but I am familiar with her inspiring author act and I know her copyright troll face better than any one else on the planet. She is a master trickster. On one hand she tells her readers how to share her work and even encourages them to do so. What she doesn't tell them is that she will demand money from them when they do.

As they say in the Georgia, "she talks out of both sides of her mouth". As an example, Linda has a page on her website explaining her position on copyright and creative content. This is an excerpt:

About Copyright by Linda Ellis

“If we treat each other with respect and more often wear a smile

remembering that this special “dash” might only last a little while.”

That’s exactly what this is, a matter of respect…respect for another’s property.  Registered, copyrighted works are considered legal property in the eyes of the law, not only in the eyes of their creator.” 

Linda Ellis appears to have deep respect for her own creative works, yet she has ripped off my media repeatedly. She can't seem to play by her own rules. We believe she is on her current rampage because she caught wind of the documentary we are producing based on my book Poetic JusticeThe True Story Behind The Dash and One Victim’s Mission to End Copyright Extortion and Bullying. The documentary will alert the Attorney Generals of all States to copyright bullying and abuse and put the last nail in The Dash coffin.

And just as important I believe we will flush out the real author of The Dash.
