Talk about nailing your own coffin shut . . .
Evidently unhappy that his previous threads on Shocklines got locked or were deleted, Davey decided to post two more. The first one shows he ripped a page out of the Pacione Play Book: “think of all the poor innocent people you’re hurting by going after me!”
Suffice it to say that the folks at Shocklines, and indeed on internet at large, have no obligation to Davey to see to it that he honors his own contracts. Similarly, nobody’s stopping him from removing the plagiarized stories and artwork, and reissuing the books in question, even if he has to find another publisher, or self-publish them. Hell, even Peaches did that.
His second post proceeds on the Cooks Source Credo: if it’s on the internet, and can be downloaded, it must not have a copyright. Furthermore, his reasoning goes, it was Activision’s responsibility to make sure he couldn’t get his hands on its artwork. Say what?
Note the ass-kissing plea at the end to leave poor Matty’s forum alone. As if that did him any good. I could be wrong, but I don’t recall anyone starting a Boyer related thread there since Harry Shannon’s from the 6th (which Matty deleted), except for Boyer himself. Kinda defeats the purpose of doing a whiny, yet obnoxious sympathy plea for mercy at Shocklines, when they’re not exactly on his case anymore.
Also, see B’s blog for some interesting info on Tin Foil’s financial wherewithal to go to court.
I love the smell of desperation in the morning.
