i’m ceasing and desisting

well, it was bound to happen sooner or later. in the same month that i pissed off rob page, i’ve also apparently caught the attention of city tv’s lawyers by posting those embarassing gord martineau clips.

so, it’s with a certain degree of pride (and perhaps fear) that i may announce my first ever cease and desist order! that’s right, one of CHUM limited’s lawyers emailed me today explaining that i’m a bad bad person…so of course i will share that letter with you (and also comply because really, i’m not an idiot):

so there you have it. chumptastic is officially mainstream. and really, you’re not much of a blog until you’ve been threatened with legal action, are you?

    no way rob, fight them. take the evil bastards to court! You have the money to beat a minor little corp like Chum. You should sue them for using a part of your websites name for their tv station!

    I don’t know whether you are right or wrong but your case would turn on the section 29.1 exclusions to copyright breach under the Copyright Act.
