Hi Alan.

The above poem; I Radiohead is one I wrote shortly before all the crap kicked off with MSN The Pleasure Dome;a home for writers and their sister site Dome 2. I was eventually booted from both these communities for having the cheek to stand up for myself and address fundalmental flaws and criminal activities in certain people managing them.

As part of my dismissal I was asked by one of their managers / assistant managers if I would like my work still displayed on the MSN Dome site. I told her (Shona McKensie) that I did not want that to happen. So, I was led to assume my work had been deleted and I was ejected by both communities and actually electronically barred by MSN from the MSN The Pleasure Dome;a home for writers.

Can you imagine my extreme anger and hurt that some person on MSN The Pleasure Dome;a home for writers has decided to hold on to my I Radiohead poem, without my legal consent? You can see it by clickinghere. Argie who I was led to believe had assistant manager status on MSN The Pleasure Dome;a home for writers but who has recently told me he was demoted to regular member status because he too addressed some of the same issues I raised. By bumping this post up Argie has revealed the illegalities of certain management / assistant management of MSN The Pleasure Dome;a home for writers. I am very grateful to him for bringing this to my attention.

As Copyright Consultant for us on Upstate Renegade Productions I would be grateful if you told me/us what my/our legal rights are here and whether MSN are accountable for this or the ability of certain people to breach the copyright legalities put in place to protect artists and writers. This is yet another example of just how badly MSN The Pleasure Dome;a home for writers and their sister site Dome 2 have treated me.

I Radiohead is part of a larger work by me, still in development. I consider this an absolute violation of my artistic / creative, civil and human rights. Add to this that it has the potential to ruin further work by me and I think you may well see just how annoying and detrimental to my career this is.

I would appreciate any and all help you offer me here. Thanks mate.

You're welcome Delph :) ...

Do you know if there is anyone active on MSN The Pleasure Dome;a home for writers who can link to this sequence of posts here on Sensitize?

I believe if active members of MSN The Pleasure Dome;a home for writers could see just how nasty the management there are, they might take a stand. If not in defence of me, then on their own behalf.

Please understand. You are under no obligation to do this Delph. I will respect your decision to remain detached if that is your wish.

If you were asked if you wanted your work removed, and you said yes, then they have a legal requirement to comply with that request. You are the copyright holder and unless you have signed a contract (shrinkwrap licences don't count) expressly giving up those rights, the above still stands.

If they are displaying this or any other work by you without your permission, I suggest you contact the hosts with the links to offending works with a takedown request.

Do not go to them directly, get it done via their hosts.

In theory you could try legal action if nothing is resolved, however in my experience rackspace and MSN are pretty good at sorting these things when it's pointed out to them.

Just remember to be concise, clear, no accusations of this that or the other. Just the links and the request to remove them as copyright holder of those works.

I'll get into it in more detail later if you wish, however as it stands I have a headache thats registering Kurt Cobain on the pain scale atm.

I have emails from and to Shona McKensie that clearly reveal how I requested my work be removed.

They are mate. I will indeed contact their hosts because try as I might, I get sod all response from either of the Dome communities.

Rackspace have yet to respond to my email some 3 weeks or so ago. Don't know about MSN. I did contact them several months back about this entire matter and their response was frankly, flippant.

Acknowledged and much appreciated Alan. Thank you for taking the time to research all of this and respond.

Ouch... Take your time Alan. I will get everything else sorted from my end and will update you on any feedback I get from their hosts etc.

Cheers :)
