Britney Fansite Shut Down


www.radaronline.com

The conservatorship of Britney Spears has muzzled more than its share of characters from Sam Lutfi and Adnan Ghalib. Now, it has turned its attention to the number one Spears fan site on the web www.breatheheavy.com, trying to shut it down for copyright infringement and claims the site is profiting off of Spears. One catch: the site is run by a twenty year-old student (he started it in high school!) who has often lost money from running the site.

“This was my passion, my greatest pride and joy forcibly stripped out of my hands,” Jordan Miller, the site creator, tells RadarOnline.com. “The ultimate goal for the website was to have it as a reference to try and get hired somewhere as a celebrity journalist after I graduate.” Miller is currently a journalism and media studies major at the University of Las Vegas who coaches gymnastics to little kids on the side. He began the site as a sophomore in high school due to his fan appreciation for Spears.

Now, I'm no fan of Britney, but I cannot see how this is illegal. Have we really gotten this far that the internet will be censored? I suppose Rockefeller got his dream. Let's face it, we all knew it would get to the point where anything the higher-ups don't like would be silenced, and apparently having fan sites is illegal now too.

I wonder, is this the start for people to start seeing you have no rights, no property, nothing?

This is absurd.
He gets $200 odd dollars A MONTH from google ads and that's profiteering off Spears?
If I was him I'd get a $$ evalution done on the service he has provided to Spears' fans and send the conservators the bill.
I'm sure it'd be a lot more than 50 lousy bucks a week.
Poor kid.

Sometimes I think these people (litigation lawyers etc) need to take a deep breath, step back and ask themselves how a "reasonable person" would act. It seems the law in some countries no longer recognises the "reasonable person". By the way, some laws in Oz are still based on the judgement of a "reasonable person". That rules out any of my ex-girlfriends.....
