Interesting article

lawandcrime.com...


No word on any any Texas prosecutors will try to pursue the case. If charged or sued, INFOWARS would surely raise first amendment defenses.

a reply to: NoCorruptionAllowed Ohhh well I may or may not like CNN but at the same time FOX is not a way to watch news as a only source of information. Not saying that you do that but a point will of mine is being made. Instead of being left or right just be a smart person and get the info yourself.

That's the thing though. InfoWars is a business. They make a profit in part from traffic to their websites and viewership to their show. If they're using other articles, without formal permission, they are technically making money off the work of others.

Not the same thing as somebody simply posting an article on ATS.

It would be an interesting case.

They also sell dubious quality "supplements" and magical iodine that'll do...something for you. Possibly make you want to run around shirtless like Jones.

did you think ats is a nonprofit org? some kind of charity?
it is the same thing since ats is no different, ats is also a business making their profits from ad's and page hits just like alex, having RT content here means ats is profiting off of RT content. it is the same thing.


if CNN or RT or any of them wanted to sue alex they know they would first have to send him cease and desist notice, which we all know alex would broadcast the receipt of such censorship efforts all over the airwaves, we havnt heard him say he received such is pretty good evidence that he hasnt actually received such. no court cases will follow.


all this sound like setting the stage to censor his site entirely via ISP's once net neutrality is out of the way, then it couldnt be said the effort was for any one particular piece, but rather just your wonderful ISP's protecting you from the big bad russian boogeymen...

i see ats peddling supplements and gold investments and all kinds of crap in their advertisements, which ats does get paid for, really isnt any different.

Does ATS sell "ATS-branded supplements"?

You're being ridiculous. ATS is a forum, an internet bulletin board, not a news organization/supplement/documentary media conglomerate.

Nothing on Cafe press is officially sanctioned or licensed by ATS. Anyone can upload anything they want and have custom cafepress items made.

You don't know what the hell you are talking about bro.

If RT is trying to promote Russian propaganda like many liberals claim why would they sue one of their supposed puppet media outlets for plagiarism? It would prove Jones and the Russians aren't working together.

Several major news media sources are named as having a potential case against Jones but putting the Russians in the headlines will get the most clicks.

Having Google Adwords/Adsense advertisements on your website isn't the same as selling specific products under your company name.

Do you work for Infowars or something? Why are you so vested in defending Alex Jones, an admitted conman and "actor" who only pretends to be a crazy tinfoil hat-wearing conspiracy theorist to take advantage of unsuspecting dupes.

It makes perfectly crystal sense to me.

RT wants to distance itself from Infowars. What better way than some frivolous, go-nowhere lawsuit.

Then everyone can say exactly what you said. It's exactly what I would do if I wanted to keep my American assets on the chessboard if they were coming under increasing scrutiny.

The feds are/have been looking into Infowars and their part of spreading Russian propaganda. So naturally, Russia wants to pull themselves back from Infowars.

It's like farting and then saying, "Yeah that's not mine!"

RT, yes...Infowars is yours...you can't deny it. The stench of Alex Jones's bloated form is stinking up the greater Austin area with beets and vodka, and Americans are wising up to that fact.

I didn't see in the article that they were suing. But even if they did it makes sense, as at the end of the day RT is a business as well and they have interests.

As to whether Jones is working for the Russians directly, not necessarily. He may just be peddling their propaganda under the assumption it's legitimate news. Or he may know it's propaganda but doesn't care because it appeals to his audience. There's no need for there to be actual conspiring or cooperation.

Probably because the bulk of those stolen articles come from RT.

the only difference if its their own brand or not is more profits, its still peddling crap and both sites do it,

i defend alex because if he gets censored so will ats, you must defend alex if you want to also defend ats, they are both guilty of giving the same types of content a platform, you cannot justify censoring one and not the other, the isp's sure wont.

alex doesnt get adwords support, google wont let him so if he is making money by instead selling his own products it really isnt any different it is still two sites making their money by advertising products,

the difference you think you see is flimsy superficial nothingness you use to make yourself feel better.

and you dont know what your talking about, keep the insults out of your posts this isnt the mud-pit, converse like an adult.

It's not stealing or plagiarizing if you credit the source, and he puts up a link which people can read the rest of the article DIRECTLY on the RT site, which adds up to a ton of clicks for them.

So what's your point, OP? Star and flag begging by throwing in "Russians" and "Alex Jones" in the same title?

That 60 minutes episode showed how Jones crew preps.

A twenty-something guy literally scans other internet sites and prints out their stories for AJ to talk about. It is a crazy stupid show.


You pretty much just described what Drudge Report does, and they are considered the best news source on the internet.

But that's how you do things when you're unscripted. They print off all the top stories of the day and pick the ones worth talking about.

It is stealing, according to RT's policy.

He got caught out.

Although InfoWars included credits in the articles’ bylines, a representative from RT told Buzzfeed that they did not receive permission to perpetuate such content.

It's disinformation.

OF COURSE Info Wars and RT want to "distance" themselves, it's all part of Putin's plan!
