Spornick, January 24, 2004
Key West, Florida, Saturday, January 24, 2004
Dear Mr Spornick,
On January 7, I sent the following email to the webmaster of a website which is registered in the name of Emory University, namely www. ++++.org.
This letter gives you the written notice under US digital communications laws to remove within seven (7) working days all copyright materials which are my copyright, and which you have without permission posted on the Internet domain identified as
I have received no acknowledgment of this email, and I have satisfied myself that at 5 p.m. this evening the website as described was still publicly posted on the Internet. Your legal advisers will be familiar with the terms of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998, and the posting of these items on your website without the permission of the copyright owner is a clear violation of that Act.
For the purposes of completeness I draw your attention to the fact that the offending website and its URL (uniform resource locator) are registered in the name of Emory University. The website to which I refer has the IP address: 206.+++.+++.28. Records show that it was created on August 29, 2000, and was last updated on October 19, 2003: i.e. the offending materials have been illegally published for a minimum of 96 days and maximum of 124+365+365+365+23 days. The website is formally registered in the name of yourself Charles Spornick and Emory University, at Emory University, 540 Asbury Circle, Atlanta GA 30322.
I require that this violation of my rights be ended forthwith. Please confirm by return that you will do so, stating what action you have taken and as of what date and time. I reserve all rights in this matter.
