    This is what I'm thinking about all this copyright crap with lawyers.

    I'm bullshittin with the Topster right now, and I thought of this:

    What if VH is trying to starve all the other fan sites out there, to basically force VH fans to use the official site?

    Let's face it, if this site goes because of the pettiness, where does that leave us? The Army is ok, but then what?

    Could this explain what Starks means when he says the PD will return "bigger and badder than ever"????

    Could the shark be eating the fish here, in an attempt the monopolize the Internet PR?

    I think JMJ said something similar to this, but man, it almost looks as if the PD will open up right when the others crash. At least, this is what I think the plan will be.

    I'm not saying it'll work, or any site will fold.

    I think Brett needs to go to court, let them come and get him. He can be famous. We'll see his skinny ass waiving to the camera on CourtTV. Brett can bring a guitar for Ed to sign, and ask Ed loudly, "Remember what this is??? You petty bastard!"

    The Boston Pilgrims (1903-1906)
    The Boston Red Sox (1907-present) - Proof

    The Pilgrims/Americans/Somersets whatever you want to call them, have NEVER displayed "SOX" anywhere on their caps, jerseys, or merchandise, therefore they shouldn't be referred to as such. However, the White Sox have used "SOX" since 1912.

    The SOX are in Chicago...we just allow the Pilgrims/Americans/Somersets to use the name.

    Interesting question but I don't think that is his intention. As for the PD, I haven't thought about it for months. I'm sure NOW would not be the time to reopen it.

    I'm not about to get in a battle about this, but COME ON!!! VH doing all this to get an internet message board monopoly? That's a stretch!!! How can this hurt a fansite? It's not like fansites make money to stay up and running--it's out of pure love and dedication to a band, so why would they have to shut down???

    Because this board is not free for Brett, not by a long shot. Have him explain it to you, or read it here:

    I know the board's not free, believe me...and that's what I'm saying. If you want to run a VH fansite, you're not MAKING money, you're LOSING money--always have, always will. It's out of pure love and dedication. Just because you'd have to remove some logos here and there doesn't mean you'd be forced to close down. VH's recent moves were not done to remove fansites and leave just VH.com...fansites kick ass! Who would want to get rid of sites that show true dedication and appreciation of them? Why would they? It doesn't do anything for them except decrease their internet presence... That's all I'm saying.

    I'm not defending anyone, I just don't think the statement above was the intent of VH's copyright concerns.

    The intent isn't nearly as important as the actuality of their choices.

    Very true...point taken.

    I think it sucks as well, and would be a pain in the ass that many will not want to undertake to be "compliant" (damn, it's like Y2K, only it's VH2C Van Halen Copyright Compliance), but I hope this site doesn't disappear because of it! I may not post much, but I frequent it a lot...it fucking kicks ass! [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img]

    If they thought the Mike denial was a firestorm, opening the PD right after this would result in a record number of first-day bannings.

    The copyright thing isn't so much about the message board itself, it's more about making the official site the ONLY web site on the Internet that will prevail.

    The PD is only part of the Official site, so of course people will use it.

    I bet all the former/future mods of the PD are warming up their lips and mouth/throat muscles as we speak. They can't wait to rule with impugnity.
