"Cease and Desist" from Neil Bauman

I received this email from Neil Bauman (Eric Bauman's father and "Executive Vice President of Ebaum's World Inc.) earlier today, followed shortly after by a second email with only "Please feel free to post this if you have the gonads.".

I strongly suggest you read more to see the most magical email thread I have ever been involved in.

To Whom It May Concern:


Please be advised that several of your forum soldiers have decided to personally visit our corporate offices. The pictures they took while trespassing on our property were proudly posted on your site. In addition some of the postings on your forum literally threatened murdering Eric Bauman. You have now officially crossed the line. You can consider this formal notification that we have initiated a criminal complaint with several agencies including the FBI Cyber Terrorism Unit. I realize that most of your entire website is comprised of pathetic, pimply-faced maladjusted pre-teens whose parents don't love them, and their best Saturday night date takes AA batteries. Be that as it may, you have now become a criminal threat. There a lot of people now monitoring your site. I strongly suggest that there are no more unauthorized "visits" to our office. There will be severe penalties for failure to heed this warning. The forum banter on your site means nothing to us or anyone in the world for that matter, but your threats of bodily harm and property damage cannot be ignored. I was afraid that the FBI and police departments would not be responsive. I was pleasantly surprised to find the contrary.

Interestingly, no individual or corporate entity has approached us with any question or problem regarding the content in question. This is true lunacy! There is this big dispute over a piece of content that we received a signed release for. Do you have any idea how foolish and immature you look through this? Of course I am referring to the real three dimensional world where real people live and work. You and your forum obviously live in very dark places where they don't teach spelling, grammar, logic, reasoning…etc. Well, that being said, we don't care how you advertise your stupidity, but eBaum's World Inc lives in the real world, and we are very tolerant and sensitive to the underprivileged and the mentally challenged. We will however use any and all legal remedies to ensure our safety. The police and FBI are taking this very seriously. I will leave you with this challenge, if any member of your forum or anyone any where wants to challenge our policy, simply come out from under your rock and call me on the phone, or schedule an appointment. I would be happy to discuss any problem with any credible individual. Of course I am assuming that these "kids" are capable of meaningful dialogue. We have received hundreds of calls, but alas, zero meaningful dialogue, only weak pranks. Judging from the posts I have read from your site I am confident that no one possesses the aforementioned skills necessary to pull that off. The first guy you sent in here probably soiled his pants when he couldn't answer the simplest question and literally ran out the door…LOL. I don't think he is a candidate for Mission Impossible. The police have already contacted him and our lawyers will have fun with Ben and his parents. The invitation stands. BTW, the FBI told me that the operators and facilitators of your site are more liable than they think; they also assured me that nobody from your site would come out from under their rock to talk. They likened your forum to terrorists who always stay under ground. Is that the way you envisioned your forum at its inception? How pathetic. I look forward to your reply.

Upon receiving this I could hardly believe it was real, as it would be somewhat surprising to see an "Executive" of a company act in such a way. I immediately called the office of eBaum's World Inc. and left a voice mail for Neil. This is the letter I received some time later.

Subject: Phone Message

Dear Max,

My assistant informed me that you called our corporate office to verify the correspondence titled Cease and Desist was in fact sent by me.it was. I would like to have any kind of meaningful communication with you or anyone representing your site. As stated in my earlier note, we have never been formally contacted by anyone regarding the questioned content. I am easily accessible during normal business hours. Feel free to contact me if you are capable of exhibiting a nominal use of some professionalism. I have had a great deal of contact from several of your loyal followers. That contact was far from meaningful or professional. In a short time you will be held accountable for the deeds and threats that were aimed at our site and our people. Obviously you have lost possession of your Yiddish cup. We are not about to be physically threatened by you or anyone else. If you thought this was a joke, you are very misguided. I am not one to be trifled with. How dare you and your brethren make death threats against our personnel? There is no veiled threat here, just your wake up call. You had the ability to stop this early in the game and choose not to. That strategy will prove to be a serious mistake in judgment on your part. Soon you will be contacted by Federal Investigators. Have a great day.

He even CC'd his lawyer. You would think a lawyer would tell his clients that isn't in their best interest to write such emails.

=====
And my response:



Dearest Neil,

I appreciate every email I get, but yours holds a special place in my heart!

If you had been paying attention, for the last three days I have been deleting hundreds of users, sites and posts with pieces of your personal information.

I'm done.

I don't think you understand the extent of this situation. People have been attacking me and my ISP just for making public statements NOT to attack you. You obviously overestimate my involvement, but I guess you have to be paranoid when you are so widely hated. These users who are attacking you are doing so on their own accord.

You may think that because you steal your content via "submissions" you hold no liability to the content you host. The fact is, I run my website as a hobby. I have a full time job so I can pay my rent, I can't pay moderators. I generally try not to be involved in sleazy practices, both in business and in my personal life. It amazes me with the history of your site and the massive amount of internet users that can barely spit your name out in disgust without following it with an expletive that you still don't get it.

I am not a part of this. I run a website where (some) people spend a lot of time and effort CREATING things to entertain others. You run a site where you TAKE and REBRAND things to host them without citing credit. How long do you think you can hide behind your "submission" technique?

I think we both know there is no possible way the majority of the content owners from which you steal can beat you on the civil level. This is due to the fact that you are a sleazy businessman that practices underhanded techniques and has a team of lawyers, while the people who are creating the "crazy" content you so masterfully profit off of have NOTHING. These people don't have lawyers, they probably earn very little if nothing off their works. Do you think if this Lohan issue went to court either side would win? No, we both know it would go nowhere, and this is why you still have it up. These kids don't want your money, they want the general respect any person should give. When someone spends the time to create something, regardless of their content sources, they just want to be cited. Fuck, is it really that much of a big deal?

Ebaumsworld Inc has a notorious reputation for being non-responsive and trying to make everything an uphill battle every step of the way. Last night I spent an hour on the phone with your hosting company, explaining the steps I was taking to try and prevent further damage from happening and explaining that I was willing to help out however I could. This morning I received a phone call from your office about a content issue on forums.ytmnd.com and how someone had posted your addresses. I explained that I had already deleted the posting earlier that morning. As a webmaster I can understand the major privacy invasion this entails and as I told your host, I want nothing to do with it.

Let this be an example of how angry the community (and not just on my website) is at your practices. I didn't put these kids up to these charades, they choose to do it on their own free will. I made public statements warning people of the legality of these issues and how it just isn't worth it to harass people in this way, and they still visited you. Do you really think so many users of my website would be so angry if someone from this community HADN'T spent the time to make that image? Do you seriously think these people are delusional enough to actually make this big of a deal over nothing?

I'm not sure of your legal background, but in my experience sending a letter degrading and demeaning the very community you steal and profit from isn't a valid way to send a legal notice, nor is using "LOL" in a sentence. This is not the way the "executive vice president" of a company acts. You sent a cease and desist but never explain what it is you want me to cease or desist doing?

I will help the FBI and local authorities out any way I can and I will provide them with any possible information they could need. I'm even willing to take a lie detector test, how about you? I have no quarrel with eBaumsworld. That being said, here is my challenge to you:

How about you stop hiding behind the money and privilege of a legal team paid for by PartyPoker popups and admit you and your employees are engaging in profiting from theft and purposefully going out of your way to make sure content creators don't get credited for their work? Who is the person that claims they made the work in question. If they signed a consent and release form why not make the information public?

I tried to be amiable. I tried to offer you my help in ending the entire thing and you did nothing but insult me, when I think it's obvious I have had nothing to do with this. I'm done with you. I will continue deleting things that break my terms of service, but beyond that, expect nothing. Here is my final offer: tomorrow at midnight I will delete anything with the term "eBaum". I offer to do this for you if you remove lohanfacial.html from your website.



Lovingly,

-Max

Sole proprietor, YTMND.COM

I don't know what went on at the ebaumsworld site as I am not a visitor there... But something tells me that other than the random acts of violence that were committed "in real life" at Ebaums "corporate offices", Mr.Bauman has no proof to show that Max or ytmnd.com had anything to do with the spamming of forums or what-not.

Wow, after Max told us to give it up, I figured it was pretty much over, and would just die down from there, but all this guy has done with his immature boasts of maturity, insults and logical fallicies is add more fuel to the fire! How hypocitical to send your first official business letter to Max declaring you wish to speak to someone in a professional manner, with the least professional letter from an "Executive Vice President" I've ever seen. He really should've ran it by his lawyer first. That's what they're there for.

Let me say that before, I felt that this internet war was really dumb. Though after reading Neil Bauman's "letter", I'm 100% behind Max on this. Though I don't condone a lot of the crap YTMNDers are doing in his name. I mean, for a grown man, probably in his forties or fifties, to write a letter calling me and many others on here "pathetic, pimply-faced maladjusted pre-teens whose parents don't love them, and their best Saturday night date takes AA batteries." is extremely mind-boggling.

The Baumans are retarded. Max is god. If for some reason, YTMND is shut down, I say we raid eBaumsworld HQ. I agree with what most people have said. Props to Max for being professional, not sinking to the Bauman's levels. I would like to lash out against eBaums, but I fear consequences, not only to myself, but to YTMND, and I'd never, ever do anything to harm YTMND. If it is anything that proves that Max is much more mature than any of the Bauman's, it is this. I doubt LohanFacial will go down, and this "war" will continue. I just hope that no harm comes to YTMND, or I'll track down the one who did it and kick their ass. This is my plea, you may think you're doing good, but you may be doing the ultimate wrong. Help YTMND, Listen to Max.

*rolls eyes* When will people learn to just get off of this? Seriously. Max has asked you fools to stop. Max isn't trying to appease anyone. He's trying to save YTMND from trouble. And YOU GUYS TOO. When words like Terrorism and Criminal gets thrown around, even if it's not done seriously, it's still serious none the less. It's better to err on the side of caution on this. Now Max has made clear his wishes. So... let me reiterate it in simple terms. http://nomorehaxorhooligans.ytmnd.com/

You know... I much prefer the Lohan page on ytmnd because Ebaum's version really loses something without the music. It just doesn't compel me to watch as much as the other one does. By the way, Neil pretty much insulted everyone who uses the internet (or makes original content for that matter) by his remarks. If his intentions were to make people stop hating on his website, he sure is doing a sh*tty job of it. And yes, who is this magical entity who submitted the Lindsay Lohan animation in the first place? That's the guy who we should be crucifying right about now.

B) He links us to the form which was "signed" and it consists of a few fields (name, e-mail, etc.) and a check box that agrees to a lengthily e-greement -- hardly a signed consent that he has been claiming to have! But it doesn't matter anyway, since it was "signed" by someone who didn't even own it to begin with! I don't think Mr. Bauman would appreciate someone from the YTMND community stealing content from his site, and posting it somewhere else without HIS consent! But hey, going by his logic, ANYONE can release ANYONE else's work! So long as they "sign" a "release"!

well I must say after reading that, I decided to join ytmnd,in support of Max. Mr. Ebaum has no right to say I don't love my child, and as for what I do on saturday, My mp3 player takes TRIPLE A batteries! I cannot believe he actually dared you to post that. does he not realize that this will only encourage more people who have been wronged to come forward, perhaps even to the fbi? also, I am no lawyer, but doesn't most lawyers tell their clients NOT to speak to people they are suing because letters and e-mail can be used for countersuit? oh well I am behind you max and if necessary, I am sure you can count on us pimply un-loved geeks to each send in a few bucks for your legal fees.

SORRY for all the posts -- let me try this again! ------------- I just caught myself up on this "battle" that's been going on -- first off I must say for someone who criticizes professionalism, Mr. Bauman has pretty lousy grammar! Now I noticed this on his pathetic FAQ (does he even know what that stands for?) "We honor ALL requests to remove unauthorized material. If any original content creator wants their material removed or wants to be given credit, they can contact us. Contrary to all of the attacks and threats, WE HAVE YET TO RECEIVE ANY COMMUNICATION FROM ANYONE CLAIMING TO BE THE ORIGINAL AUTHOR OF THE ANIMATION IN QUESTION, OTHER THAN THE USER WHO SUBMITTED IT TO US. IF YOU ARE THE ORIGINAL CREATOR AND WANT IT REMOVED, BY ALL MEANS, PLEASE LET US KNOW." So is he saying that the person who submitted the image WASN'T the original author?? I quote from the e-mail he sent Max: "There is this big dispute over a piece of content that we received a signed release for." *CONTINUED*

Has anyone considered the possibility of a class-action lawsuit against ebaumsworld.com? It could represent anyone who has had their copyrights violated, whether from YTMND or other sites, and could very well put enough of a financial strain on them in the case of a favorable ruling for the content creators to put them under, if not drive them into bankruptcy. Of course this would depend on the amount of settlement but it would certainly be a huge blow to them and could even result in a court order for them to shut down their site. Just a thought.

**CONTINUED FROM PREVIOUS COMMENT** A) I'm not a lawyer, but last I checked, before one posts content on their web page, it is THEIR responsibility to ensure that the person releasing the material actually owns the rights to said material. It seems to me that since Mr. Bauman differentiates between the "original author" and the "user who submitted it", he is admitting that they are different people, and thus admitting to posting material which he isn't authorized to display! Copyright laws anyone? B) He links us to the form which was "signed" and it consists of a few fields (name, e-mail, etc.) and a check box that agrees to a lengthily e-greement -- hardly a signed consent that he has been claiming to have! But it doesn't matter anyway, since it was "signed" by someone who didn't even own it to begin with! **CONTINUED**

If there is one thing he isn't doing, it's asking the people who did all this sh*t to come and stand behind him and put his face on the posters. If you think ruining other people's "e-property" is fun, go join myg0t. Otherwise get over it, what everybody did was f*cking stupid in every way. All this could have been settled if somebody had just asked who had submitted the photo to them, and then done what needed to be done to contact that person and have the image removed.

Wait, dood we should get sean connery to go over to the "living" ebaums company and shut it down. I guarentee if each ytmnd member were to donate a dollar or more, we could get him to do it. As well as a celebrity like him could show off all the stolen material and watermarked stuff.

Wow, Neil has worse grammer than a 10 year old. Also he insulted hundreds of users of his own site (probably thousands), and made an anti semetic insult towards Max. I am sorry but I have to say this, singular acts of aggression against embaumsworld is possibly the only way to reach them. Their lawyers are sleaze and their name must be ruined. If their stock is traded, it just plummeted. Eat human feces and die ebaums.

Bauman's e-mails were nothing more than a feeble shot at ridiculing our community with an attempted level of formality that looked ridiculously out of place, which is why he encouraged Max to display it publicly. He's only further representing Ebaum's site as the indescent farce it's already renowned to be. Although it's needless to say, I say this only as a re-enforcement of the fact that Max is in the justified position here and has nothing to fear.

Strange but true: A friend of mine who has incredibly pungent farts has dubbed the occurance 'Dropping an E-Bomb' (because his last name begins with 'e'). For years we've dreaded the E-Bomb and tried to make the best of a bad situation when one is dropped in mixed company. Really, it's awful, and it somehow lingers like no other fart could hope. A few years ago we learned about the fledgling comedy website with a very similar name to the 'E-Bomb'. In lieu of recent events, it makes sense.

On some other forums I've been browsing, they're mentioning sending mail to eBaum's advertisers basically saying that their property was stolen by eBaum and since purchased advertisement space, they no longer will use the products from aforementioned company. A hard copy letter would have much more effect than email here. Anyway, one of the advertisers that perked my interest in such matters was USANetwork. A big name company that would be hurt by bad publicity.

The FBI processes all viable threats, cetta, no matter how serious. Although the threat to the Baumans is trivial at best (knowing you flower-picking hippies), the fact is that there is a viable threat. The FBI will treat the case seriously, but I doubt that any action will be taken. Seeing as how Max is so insulated from the "cyber terrorists," Max himself faces little to no FBI pressure. Max may get an FBI file opened on him and may be questioned once or twice, but I doubt things would continue from there.

Since so many of Ebaums forum's state something like "show us your copyright papers" maybe they should read what the loving people at wipo say http://www.wipo.int/copyright/en/faq/faqs.htm it basicly states "Copyright itself does not depend on official procedures. A created work is considered protected by copyright as soon as it exists. According to the Berne Convention for the Protection of Literary and Artistic Works, literary and artistic works are protected without any formalities in the countries party to that Convention. Thus, WIPO does not offer any kind of copyright registration system." so um yea, ebaums members = pwned :D

Gee Max. Last time I checked my Ph.D was still valid. I'm hardly a kid too! I don't know if the FBI has a "Cyber-Terrorism Unit" as named by Ebaums, but they do investigate internet death threats, hacking, fraud, and other types of crimes and take them very seriously. I have worked with this particular unit in a court case and you will find them very professional and very thorough. If they contact you just be honest. From what I remember, individuals who post death threats and hack may be the ones prosecuted, not you. Individuals who have done real damage, if any, may need to be concerned, but I think you are not a target of prosecution. The case I was involved with was a death threat posted on an AOL message board. AOL was not charged, but representatives did have to testify. But the person who posted it was convicted. Ebaum's letter is hardly a professional response and it may or may not be truthful about the FBI interest, but I think you are in the clear. Good Luck! YTMND rocks!

You can not be held responsible for the actions of YTMND members unless you directly tell them or encourage them to harm this pathetic excuse for a piece of horse sh*t. What others do is not your responsibilty, Lets get that part clear and out of the way. Now I will say that I doubt he has some corporate office. Seems any one with a Admin@site.com gets a huge epeen and thinks they are some big shot but thats not my main point here. You have this little thing called freedom of speech. That means if you want to make a picture of eric bauman and cover it in sh*t and post it on a site well guess what? YOU CAN. On my last note I would rather be a pimply faced 12 year old kid than a fat hairy 40 year old man who visits erics site. Fact is most 40 year olds who visit his joke site have no idea that over half his crap is ripped off from other sites. In a world today where half the people online use AOL I doubt they would know that he is not creative, he lacks skill and relies on ripping others work off.

You guys all know the details of the 'visit to the headquarters' right? Two kids realized they lived near the headquarters. They didn't know where it was, so they LOOKED IT UP in the phonebook. They documented the visit with pictures. (They said the 'headquarters' just looked like a normal house, nothing fancy) They taped 2 signs to the door, took a picture, removed the signs, and left. Ebaum makes it seem like kids came to the headquarters and took a dump on his doorstep. Every step along the way they manage to make themselves look worse. I don't understand. Max, I commend you for your response here. Did you purposefully word your ultimatum that way? Either way, it resulted in the original html being removed, and an ever more childest rebuttal.

I think were going about this the wrong way. We all know and agree that ebaumsworld has violated us all, by consistently hot-linking, and stealing images from this and many other sites. This is an attack against all of internet subculture by a money hungry high-school dropout, whose layout looks equivalent to his education. Attacking ebaumsworld itself... is useless. SEND IT TO THE ADS! Alright let’s think about it! How does he get money? Ads! I think the advertisers might pull ads after they have to sort through all the complaints. BOYCOT and COMPLAIN TO THE ADS!!! Let’s be smart and protest straight to the money.

Max, I don't know what to think about this. Yeah, lohanfacial.html was removed per request, sure, but the file is still there along with an immature insult and the police code for murder? Who's the immature f*ggot in this situation?

Even though they immediately removed the signs, (no harm, no foul) some gamespot forum members proceeded to find one of their addresses, and harass them. They then immediately apologized to Ebaum. (I am not sure what there was to apologize for...) So yeah, its all bs on that front.

well done max. it really angers me that the ebaum does have a pack of lawyers ready just in case someone decides to go after him. i'm not going to pretend to be versed in the law, but couldn't someone potentially open a class-action civil suit against ebaum? like, anyone who could prove they created content on their site gets a percentage of his ad revenue?

******** Max, I would NOT delete all the ytmnds with Ebaum in the name. That is crazy... But, I would however add disclaimers along the lines of "The ideas, images, etc. expressed on this websige do not represent the position blah blah blah of YTMND... etc. etc. etc..) Additionally, maybe a "terms of use" or something before seeing the home page that the user must agree to forfeit all rights.. blah blah blah... something along those lines... just a thought... I would get a lawyer if I were you just to see if ebaum has a leg to stand on... (a leg he hasnt stolen from someone else that is...) -FuNK

I registered simply for the reason that I could comment on this news post. Max, I believe you have handled the situation at hand incredibly. Seeing Neil act in such a childish way with his e-mails, then seeing you reply the way you have makes me proud to support your website and you as a person.

While I do admit mocking Eric and Neil Bauman, I never would, or want to, DDOS attack his website or make death threats to Eric. But it wasn't just YTMND that attacked ebaumsworld. It was also groups like Newgrounds, Something Awful, Adult Swim, GameFAQs, 4chan, KNova, Fark, LUE, LivingWithStyle, D-Day and LUElinks.

I can't wait to see how Neil responds to that email. I stand behind you Max, you proved you were the man when you beat the Dustin Diamond suit and you even more proved that you're the man because of how professionaly you handled this. It's a shame that some bad apples had to resort to terrorizing them and let the situation grow to this.

Q. So now what? A. Good question. We're hoping these individuals come to their senses and stop the attacks immediately. There's a professional way to handle this situation.

If any original content creator wants their material removed or wants to be given credit, they can contact us.

Max, if any lawyer actually tries to bring you to court over all this, show up naked. I still can't believe the e-mails you recieved were from a grown man. I also can't believe that some people here used 'YTMND' to identify themselves throughout this squabble. Guys, if you wanna attack ebaumsworld.com go for it. You have my blessings. However, leave Max and YTMND out of it. He's not your leader in this 'war.' He's just a guy who runs this website.
