Greetings Forumerions,

Dennis Balthaser recounts his recent experience and "proactive stance"
with criminal Bill Knell, after learning that that he too was a victim
of DVD piracy:


To quote a Chinese Proverb: "When someone shares something of value with
you and you benefit from it, you have a moral obligation to share it
with others", which is what I'll try to do in this article.

I have been working closely with my Webmaster, researcher Frank Warren,
www.theufochronicles.com and Aztec researchers Scott and Suzanne
Ramsey for the past 12 years, on various UFO cases, highly respecting them for their honesty and thorough
investigations. We have dealt with debunkers, skeptics and critics of
all sorts, and have even welcomed their comments, if and when, the
information they presented was factually worthy of review.

There is another, quieter element in Ufology, aside from debunkers,
skeptics, and critics. They are the hucksters who use other researcher's
work without doing their own; those who take from others' research, or
articles, and publish the work as their own (plagiarism). Then there are
still other scoundrels who market or sell researchers' works, such as
DVDs of lectures, books, or documentaries, without permission or
financial arrangements made with the researchers (piracy). I have
recently found that I am myself, a victim of piracy, and this is what I
feel a moral obligation to share with my readers . . .


The rest of the story . . .

Cheers,
Frank

I think no matter what side of the UFO debate one falls on, we can all agree scoundrels and predators like Bill Knell need to be thrown out. Great work, Mr. Warren!

This certainly seems like your onto this guy from UFOGuy.com there Frank Warren, "plagiarism" is a fine line as for Selling a researchers work without permission is Morally Low than there's the legal obligation of © rules


those who take from others' research, or
articles, and publish the work as their own (plagiarism).


This is were web sites like ATS media are a gift so researchers can upload their media for the viewers to see in this way if one notices a presentation/s in a copulation dvd being sold it should be enough to set off alarms.

Zelong.

Piracy sucks. I do not care who or what is being ripped off but even the people we do not agree with need to eat, except for metalica they can starve for flipping on the issue when their album sales crashed.

None of the people anywhere in this world, can say they do not steal info from others.

Hypocrites.

Piracy is the least of Bill Knell's crimes.

Thanks!

Rather throw him out," I'd rather throw him "in"--jail that is!! This guy has been doing this for decades and it's a family affair!!

As you state in another post, piracy is the least of his crimes. just Google "Bill Knell" + "fraud" to get a better idea.

Cheers,
Frank
