Indie Law Fabric Crash Course Critics Page 2

Needless to say, shortly after the following exchanges the threads were deleted by Indie Law and Joey Vitale.

This screen shot is from September 25, 2017. Again, Joey Vitale's response to Karen was dismissive and we question his claims.

Karen cited the U. S. Supreme Court decision, Bobbs-Merrill Co. v. Straus, and the federal circuit decisions Precious Monemnts and Scarves By Vera.

"That is simply inaccurate." He says this because it does not fit his dissertation.

"First, those cases are pursausive at best but not authoritative." Joey, do a search of federal court cases and you will find there are NO other cases that went to trial where the rights owner of licensed fabric has sued a so-called infringer over the use of their fabric. In over 100 years of printed fabrics NO OTHER CASES. Why? Because it is established law.

"I have not connected with any lawyer who takes the position that you can use licensed fabrics with proper titles and disclaimers." Really? And how many lawyers did you consult besides your buddy 'Mitch' Jackson? Corporate lawyers espouse the views of their paying clients and those views can change quickly. Ask Disney, Major League Baseball, Sanrio, and United Media, all of which we sued when they interferred with our sales on-line. All of which wanted to settle after we sued them, pro se.

Disney and the rest are billion-dollar companies. Defending those cases would have been a small portion of their legal budget and would have firmly established their right to control the use of their fabrics. They all bailed rather than fight the issue. Do you ever wonder why? Naw. Because it does not fit what your are trying to sell.
