Harvey Dent - post-acid!

Wow. That's pretty fucking gnarly. Yes, I'm aware that I just wrote gnarly.

That guy looks like Ryan Reynolds.

You're very welcome. But thank goodness you saved it to your webspace rather than linking it... Warner Brothers (aka "The Man") requested its removal from Ain't It Cool and now it's gone from there. Boo.

hopefully you won't get a form letter from the WB legal department. :D

Yea, I got a legal letter from from WB this afternoon. Just took my image down.

This lends credibility that the image is real.

It looks a tad Photoshopped, but I think it is a test image of what the make-up folks are aiming for.

Pretty good, but T-3 did it better because you could see CLEAR THROUGH gaps in the T-100terminator's head.

If you get a cease and desist, just respond that you require all DMCA requests to be submitted via mail. They have to swear that they are sending the request with the permission of and on the behalf of the true copyright owner.

Then, by the time you actually receive the DMCA request, the news will be old and you won't care about removing it. Takes the impact out of the ridiculous DMCA laws and their abuse.

That's my standard policy at my site and I get dozens of DMCA complaints every year.

Seumas - I think he looks more like Burt Reynolds than Ryan Reynolds...even grits his teeth like ol' Burt...

Aaron said...

Seamus, dude, thanks for the comment. I didn't even think about that. (I should have, as that is my standard reply to credit callers) :)

I will start that one. Although, getting the request is a nice barometer in regards to site exposure.

Still, many thanks!

Can't wait to see what I get some Lucasfilm in a week or so... Oh, what am I talking about?

Gonna' have to wait! w00t!

Aaron, to further my suggestion, let me add this:

Having them contact you and then replying "sorry, we require DMCA requests be mailed" could be awkward, so do this one pro-active thing...

Create a DMCA page on your site and link to it from the bottom of all your other pages.

On this page, say you respect copyrighted content and will happily react to all concerns by proper copyright owners concerning possible unintentional infringement.

Then give a mailing address and say that you request all DMCA notices be submitted to you there. You'll also want to ask that they provide a specific URL to the infringing content and that they confirm they are the owner of the content or the legal representative of the owner. This avoids ambulance chasers pretending to represent someone and sending out takedowns.

If someone is willing to go through this trouble, you can bet they are likely legitimate. And since it takes some time for them to provide the documents, mail it to you, receive it and for you to "process" it, by the time it is all handled it'll be too old to matter and you'll be happy to remove it probably.

I created my "boiler plate" DMCA page using Google's DMCA page as an example. Here you go. Hope this helps.

Thats F-ing wicked, i know what my costume is going to be for Halloween now!

We still have it up at Pop Culture Zoo. That is both good for folks that still want to find it and sad that we are still too small to get any notice from WB.

Where's continuity. The eyeball can't exist without an eyelid to keep it from drying out.

It requires suspension of disbelief,Bob...

Maybe he sticks his tongue out of hole on the side of his mouth and licks his eyeball to keep it moist :)
