He doesn't care about Amazon review bombing
Looks like John Beiswenger will continue to protect his copyright, according to his lawyer.
Do you remember the novelist John L. Beiswenger, who was suing Ubisoft for allegedly infringing his copyright in the plot of the original Assassin's Creed?
And also, do you remember how fans punished him with Amazon review-bombs for his book?
Well, according to his lawyer, her client is legally obliged to protect his copyright and won't be deterred by those recent spate of review 'bombing' of his publications on Amazon.
According to her, they desire to stop AC3 from seeing the light of day..."We understand that many gamers are upset about the litigation and potential for delay in the release of the next Assassin's Creed video game, and as a result of that anger have been posting negative comments on Amazon - and other forums - about our client and his novel Link," said Keller.
"However, copyright laws exist to protect authors and creators from others who copy or create works that are, under the law, substantially similar; failure to enforce copyright laws renders them meaningless.
"The Amazon 'bombing,' storm of negative comments, and threats to our client have no bearing on the appropriateness, merits, or outcome of this suit. They have no material effect on the legal claims."
So, they will continue with this... What do you think?"Copyright holders are entitled to injunctive relief under the law to stop continued infringement," she added.
