I would think that if someone had proof of alien visitation, the potential global impact of that would prompt any person of good morals to immediately
come forward with everything they had. It is interesting that this does not seem to be the case here.
When Rocky Mountain Paranormal (RMP) posted a copy of that youtube video on their web site to comment on it's quality and authenticity, they were
told by Romanek's lawyer to take it down. Here is what RMP
said about that:
“By the advice of Mr Romanek’s lawyer, we have removed his video & images. We originally felt this was fair use, as we were publishing a snippet
of it for the purposes of political commentary, and felt that purpose was of greater value to society. But Mr Romanek’s lawyer has informed us that
it could hurt Mr Romanek’s market for this content. We thought it was about a political issue. Apparently, Mr Romanek has other plans”.
The political purpose mentioned involved Jeff Peckman's ballot issue in Denver to create an Extraterrestrial
, and his use of this video to help bolster his points.
So what I can glean from all this, is that the video's fair-use distribution has been denied because it might hurt Romanek's Book/DVD sales, which
will include it. While at the same time, Peckman apparently can continue to use it as he will for his political purpose, yet the video can't
otherwise be criticized, because it can't be shown by anyone except Romanek and Peckman.
Apparently the ballot issue has been moved again, and is now scheduled for the May 2009 ballot (assuming they get the necessary signatures to get it
on that ballot). I expect we'll here more about all this once that time frame rolls around.
