Jon, point out to me where it was "obvious" that he "never intended" to
steal my copyright:

Why you fucked in the head drug addict!
You requested I put credits on the VIDEO,
I did, then you had the fucking gall to drag your sick, whiney ass
around
accusing me of NOT putting them on, and then of theft!
NOW, you have two choices either pay up or apologize
If not I'll have a copyright notice on it by tomorrow
and a DMCA complaint filed with every site that hosts MY
Video.
Now set the bottle aside, get you nose out of the crack
And think back, then look at the video (that is if you can play it)
Then gather all your remaining brain cells and try to recall the lies
you
posted
Then..
Then apologize.
End of story, end of conversation.

See below for an example of Cook using my poetry on his website in an
Mp3 without my permission, and without me knowing about it, beforehand.

So, if this were to happen to you, Jon, you'd react differently?

In the archives corresponding with Rik, Tom, Boss et al, you have a
much different stance.

No. I'm well aware of Cook's history, as almost everyone here is.

When a man with a history of stealing copyrighted works that dates back
for *years* threatens to steal my copyright, I'll take his word.

Cook may be a troll, but he's *also* a thief.

Funny maybe, but also theft... bait or not, Cook's using *stolen bait*.

Here's some excerpts from a thread where Michael Cook denys "stealing"
and posting one of my poems, "Karma Bombs"... he wrote that he only
"borrowed" it..:

You hapless dullard!
One, you are stealing my bandwidth.
I'd rather you just took the recording
and post it to your own server.

Hey! You "stole" my copyrighted poem! I prefer to think of it as a
"cover",
and on my Lulu.com release, you get full credit.
> I'd rather you just took the recording> and post it to your own server.> (i only have 368 up)

This has been done, more-or-less. What music do *you* envision for the
poem?
We'll create our own, similar to the one already performed, but I'm
curious
about what you'd come up with:

I knew that, of course, but I think it's kind of fun to go into the
Google
archives with *another* "Collaboration with Michael Cook... by the way,
when
will you be putting the "Oz" photo-story back up, at least long enough
for
me to copy/paste it to a more permanent site?

As the recording clearly demonstrates, a poem I did not steal,
only borrowed
----

This was two years ago, clearly showing Michael Cook has a habit of
"borrowing" [translation: stealing] copyrighted poetry, images and
other works created by other hands, to call his own.

And there's *more*, in the archives, if anyone cares... remember what
the Boss wrote... this could happen to any poet here.

Applause, awards and defense of *your* thief should logically follow,
y'know?

Is that such an Unlikely Story to consider?

That part's finished.

Now we go into the task of informing Usenet and beyond of Cook's habits of stealing
poetry, music, art, videos, and his desire to obtain copyrights to work made by other
hands.

For artists to be aware of, and beware of Michael D. Cook.

Ya'll can help: keep defending him, and I'll keep posting the evidence... there's more yet
to bring out of the archives.
