The Fraudulent "Rev" Perjurs Himself and Abuses the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA)

Those of us who know the pretend "rev" and Navy Seal impostor are not surprised at that he would lie to keep the truth about himself off the web and away from the public. Mr Sutter like many frauds on the web today has been abusing the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) to stop freedom of speech and prevent the truth about him being revealed to the public. Mr. Sutter LIED in order to get snapshots of himself pulled off several different web severs. Mr. Sutter is the subject of these snapshots not the copyright owner as he claims. My use those photos is legally protected because it falls within the "fair use" provision of the copyright regulations, as defined in 17 USC 107. Perhaps Mr. Sutter needs a refresher course in copyright laws.

Question: Can the subject of a photograph use the DMCA 512 takedown process?

Answer: Generally, no. Only the copyright owner or an authorized representative of the copyright owner can send a DMCA takedown notice. The copyright in a photograph belongs initially to the person who took the photo, not the person who is pictured. Unless the photo subject has gotten an assignment of copyright or permission to act on behalf of the photographer, it is improper for him or her to send a DMCA takedown notice.

One can get Sutter's federal prison records using Freedom of Information Act (FOIA).

At first, I thought that Sutter didn’t want people to know what he looks like because of… his obvious aesthetic challenges. He also uses his blog avatar and phony “Reverend” title to try and fool people into believing that he is a skinny retired academic rather than a bloated two-time-felon and fraud that refuses to work.

Then, when he kept hacking at it, I thought that it might be the picture of him in his wheelchair that he was embarrassed about, given that he has a documented history of conning people into believing that he is disabled.

But now, I think it is the recent picture of him standing up that he is really trying to keep others from seeing. From talking with those who have seen him lately, he actually does pretend to need a wheelchair – which I’m sure is subsidized by taxpayers – even though he is perfectly capable of walking.
