Call the Stations - Take Off The Illegal Martin Ad Now

A new post at the Cleveland Plain Dealer weblog Openers indicates that the Ohio House Republican Campaign Committee intends to yield, but they're not going to stop violating my intellectual property rights until some time next week:
House chief of staff Scott Borgemenke says the House would rather switch than fight.

"We think we're fine legally on it, but we are going to work over the weekend and change it," he said. "It's not worth the fight. It's going to be exactly the same. We're going to swap out photographs over the weekend."
There is no legitimate reason for the TV stations to continue airing an unlawful copyright infringement for days and days while the OHRCC removes the pirated photograph from their commerical. Please call or fax the TV stations and demand that they pull the ad immediately:

I am happy for this - hopefully more good news to come.

Keep up the good and right fight Jeff, WoM is with you all the way on this.

Way to go. Hopefully it will send a message.

But I don't think we should hold our collective breath.

Done, done, and done. Of the three, guess which one gave me the runaround? If you guessed the local Faux News affiliate, you'd be right.

Their reasoning? We can't pull the ad because we have to give all candidates equal access to the airwaves. I gave her a good laugh when I said that someday I hope to run for office so I can steal others' property with impunity for use in my TV spots...

Thank you, hapless blogging dweebs, you have brought MUCH more attention to the Lundy ad than it deserved. Please, just leave this business to us D's who actually do work on the ground and in the real world.

So you like to disenfranchise voters?

If part of your "business" is to leave snarky anonymous comments on the news outlets of hardworking citizens who provide information that voters can't and won't get anywhere else, I'm thrilled that I'm not in your business.

Leaving this comment undercuts any professionalism you have and implies that maybe whomever you work with supports copyright infringement.

Jeff - don't know if you know who the anonymous is from the post above mine. Just reacting.
