So adding text to this photo makes it yours? I do not think so.



makes it yours?  I do not think so.

The original photographer or their employer holds the actual copyright to these photographs.  This is just one of a million plus examples on the internet of simple and mindless infringement.  I noticed a lot of parodies and other altered photos of Casey Anthony, and yet most of these folks know their right to use these items is under the open domain act, and do not place any form of copyright emblem or notation, as their work is derived from someone else’s original photograph or video/audio recording.

The internet has greatly enhanced out ability to receive instant interaction,
instant gratification and most of all, instant notoriety.

The ability to drag and copy, right click save and other cool techniques
have made blogging and other interaction on the internet, easy and effortless,
 when creating news items to titillate readers and win over our foes.  I find
the most interesting is when I re-posted comments that referenced me,
directed to me and written about me, met with such disdain and hate. 
The very ones who posted these comments disagreed with me.

example- I reposted this under the title:

I never thought of duct tape, as much as I do now, eek!

the blog was-

Casey Anthony: Why won’t she clear up Zenaida Gonzalez mystery? posted by halboedeker on May 19, 2009 5:31:52 PM Discuss This: Comments (152)

the comment directed to me-

“We sure could use some duct tape and chloroform about now. Me thinks that’s the only thing that will shut up finnperkins and her imaginary friend cottoncandy.”

I read and see their favorite blogs, like cayleedaily and humbleopinion,
and wham!,  there it is the “act of re-posting”, the reposts photos
and documents that originated from other websites, like the Orlando
Sentinel, WFTV, WESH WKMG, and WOFL and many more.

So I am offering this link to clarify my rights as well as theirs, in regards
to the Orlando Sentinel Blogs and other related content… the content
used, read and reposted

“WHY DO YOU CARE WHO I SCREW OVER… you’re not cutting my pay check…”

Yes you’re right we are not signing your paycheck, directly, but indirectly we are, while you’ve been reading all things related to the “I hate Casey Anthony” topics, other Americans have noticed that our President ssigned the ARR act of 2009, February. I will not place details of how direct or indirect your company benefited from this ARR Act of 2009, but I think if you have half the brain you profess to have, you will take this hint and get over yourself, and stay on topic and stop being a bully. …FYI, go rent “Stand by me.”

Others who do not know what my rant is about, many think this is a strange post to make public, but I feel it is due, as this person, Distain for CMA, is a bully, and so are some of her followers, that comment in unison to her lead on Hal TV guy blog.

Not that anyone care, but I found this neat sofeware for companies who want to know what the mice are doing…

hey Orange County, Flori-dah?, ever heard of the word Exempt? …try using it on in a while.

you might want exercise restraint, when weighing out the media role to report the news, verse their ongoing need to make the news. The Earnhardt Family Act enacted for this very reason.  I am not sure at what point the world became insensitive to such macabre voyeurism, but it needs to stop.  I would be very pleased to read that the judge has ruled not in favor of the Anthony’s because of who they are, but because of what they are requesting.  The request plain and simple is, please do not release to the public the autopsy.  I know that everyone’s autopsy is of public record, but not everyone’s mother is on trial for her life, and the autopsy conveying possible evidence to taint the jury pool.

My last words on the subject-

What would Caylee want?  One must remember a two year old who loves their mother unconditionally is unlikely going to side with the people on the “I hate Casey Anthony Train” that has blazed a path through the headlines of my once normal local paper.

Wake up people, if this comes and passes without denial, what next, are we going to see live autopsies, executions, and hey why not show videos of the jury deliberating….

That last one sounds crazy, but I would not place it unattainable, as here in Flori-dah!,  nothing surprises me anymore.

Example or reality

This is a game  



… this is not, this is call autopsy, here is what what might become of Caylee’s, if the media gets their way.  I show here, a Flori-dah newspaper, in St. Petersburg times, an odd way of displaying the findings of Martin Lee Anderson autopsy.


To learn whether  died of natural causes, or from blows inflicted by guards, doctors will examine his body for the second time on Monday. Here is a look at how autopsies are done, what they found in the first autopsy, and what they may look for next.
Go to interactive [i removed the link]


What is interesting about this case, the child was shown on a video being beaten by officers, and yet cause of death was different, but now here in floridah, “death remains undetermined” is not acceptable.

Would you like a little swift kick in the conscience, with

…that macabre imagination of yours?



“At least the release of the autopsy will give us some new meat to feed on. It’s been slim pickens around here… hash hash, and rehash.”

I am not sure what is worst, the media, or the readers who make comments like this one.

At least with the media we know where they stand.  The advertising revenue, the market ratings/share, but a statement so irreverent that removes any form of compassion or conscience human decency.

This same person along with others who take there lead, often head down the slippery slope of macabre voyeurism, all in the name of “justice for Caylee…

Like children who are in fear of not getting their way, the blame authority.  I think statements likethe one below, will help them achieve their point, yet their comments are self-defacing, and only reflect on them.



 RxxxFxxxPxxxx | June 11, 2009 at 05:59 PM


I am sure this will bring out more of the best in them. I am not in fear of their words, as again, their words are only on my screen.  I will just log out and turn off the computer if I feel I have had enough.




the media: emphasized evidence that tended to incriminate, read any blog referencing the Casey Anthony case? imo-yes…what do you think?

I had commented on a blog –
             Posted by: finnperkins | June 01, 2009 at 09:37 PM

Sheppard v. Maxwell


 some one responded with this-

 – “That was relative to publicity and coverage “during” the “trial” and how it affected the “jury” not to be confused with media attention, coverage or discussions “before” the trial or interest from the general public.”

cxxx lxxxxxxxxx


So I replied –

To cxxx lxxxxxxxxx

In response to Sheppard v. Maxwell, would not apply, per your comment – “That was relative to publicity and coverage “during” the “trial” and how it affected the “jury” not to be confused with media attention, coverage or discussions “before” the trial or interest from the general public.”


Taken directly from the 384 U.S. 333-Syllabus [1,2,3 and 4]
During the entire pretrial period, virulent and incriminating publicity about petitioner and the murder made the case notorious, and the news media frequently aired charges and countercharges besides those for which petitioner was tried. Three months before trial, he was examined for more than five hours without counsel in a televised three-day inquest conducted before an audience of several hundred spectators in a gymnasium. Over three weeks before trial, the newspapers published the names and addresses of prospective jurors causing them to receive letters and telephone calls about the case.

[2]Estes v. Texas
Throughout this period, the newspapers emphasized evidence that tended to incriminate Sheppard and pointed out discrepancies in his statements to authorities. At the same time, Sheppard made many public statements to the press, and wrote feature articles asserting his innocence.

[4]Sheppard v. Maxwell
We granted certiorari, 382 U.S. 916 (1965). We have concluded that Sheppard did not receive a fair trial consistent with the Due Process Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment and, therefore, reverse the judgment.



[3]Stroble v. California
“Disclosed that scientific tests at the Sheppard home have definitely established that the killer washed off a trail of blood from the murder bedroom to the downstairs section,”
A circumstance casting doubt on Sheppard’s accounts of the murder, no such evidence was produced at trial.


imo -I will not bore you with the details, except this one- “including but limited to the release of the jurors’ names, address and telephone numbers.”

I ask that if you feel this is OK, then why is there a need for on line screen names, why not use your real names? I think in reality, it isn’t ok with any of you, and that privacy is something none of you here want the US supreme court or any other court to take away from you, so why should a local circuit trial judge be allowed to disregard the rights of the jurors’.
Again, I am not offering any opinion on Ms. Anthony’s claim of innocence; I am only stating that in order for the verdict, that when rendered, when the gavel hits the sound block that the verdict will stand.

“…privacy must be approached from a people-centered perspective, and not through the marketplace.” -by Leslie Regan Shade, …and I agree.

I realized recently that I am not surprise by the content on the local TV station’s websites. I can go and click on any one of them and view photos of car crashes, the very site that a persons life had been taken, and more times than not, video footage of the latest reason why the interstate highway 4, is blocked.  The very photos that offer clues to the FDLE, are right there for not only my eyes to see, but also available to viewers from all over the world.  

My issue with this practice is that, the families of these victims, not only have the initial shock of hearing about their loved ones death or injuries, but they now have a constant reminder of this tragedy. 

I know that the technology of instant video gratification has surpassed the hallmarks of the First Amendment, and circumvents the Fifth Amendment on a daily basis. 

I am offering my opinion on this because recently I was informed that my one of my parents had been in an accident in which, a driver of a truck made a right turn on red, and fail to yield to the pedestrian, who at that time was in the crossing the street.  My parent did not see the truck until it had been contact, and their body had remained pinned under the truck, the truck moved them several feet before coming to a stop.

I for one, even if this were not my parent, would not want photos of this on my local TV stations webs site, not would I want the images posted on the news, with anyone of or delightful news anchors.

I cannot even begin to imagine what it would be like to see these images of this accident, nor would I want to be filmed’ while hearing news of this tragic accident.

I think the idea of filming anything usually is to make record of something, whether it is for profit or for documentation of service rendered by the OFD /first responders, or for court record.  Usually it is the later. 

Therefore, in the name of justice, many have said, they want to see the video of Casey in the jail’s medical waiting room.  Is this because as a society, whose been cabled fed a variety of reality format television shows, that the folks say “hey, it reality, lets she her in pain, let’s see her incriminated herself…let see it, lets see it…”

When will the insanity of the insane notion that one-person tragedy is another person’s favored pastime.  I have ask, did the corrections officers take Ms. Anthony out of her cell, bring her down to the medial facility’s waiting area, to film her reactions the day Mr. Padilla offered his findings from the search at lake near Jay Blanchard park.

….You know, the search paid by Mr. Padilla.

….You know the one resulted in misinformation from Mr. Padilla     and that the FDLE had to field questionable findings latter to be found as animal bones and products unrelated to the Anthony’s or to their home.

The answer is no. the corrections department and its officers allowed Ms. Anthony to remain in her Cell.  It has been of record, the OCCO stated Ms. Anthony heard the news on her radio.  Also noted is that the Video in question is incomplete, as Ms. Anthony was in the medical waiting room for more than 30 minutes, and the video

is shorter, based on the video time counter.

May I remind you of these two cases –

Estes v. Texas in 1965- Estes v. Texas, the Supreme Court overturned his conviction of a defendant whose trial was televised to the public. The Supreme Court held that the defendant was deprived of his due process rights.  In addition, the court declared that by televising the trial, the jury was made, inherently prejudicial. 

Sheppard v. Maxwell in 1966- The Supreme Court in an 8 to 1 decision declared that Sheppard had been deprived of a fair trial because the judge failed to minimize “the prejudicial impact of massive publicity.”

The most recent case of deprived in deference by the court and the media is the issue of a person’s right to privacy vs. the public’s right to know.  In the Orlando Sentinel filed a Freedom of Information Act request, to obtain copies of racecar driver Dale Earnhardt’s autopsy photos.

I remember when the Orlando Sentinel requested his autopsy photos, stating that they wanted to have an expert see these photos, who would offer their expert opinion on head trauma and it’s relation to on going safety issues in the field of auto racing.  The newspaper added that they did not intend to publish the photographs.

Mr. Earnhardt’s widow, Teresa Earnhardt, was, perhaps understandably, outraged. She had also feared that access to these photos would lead, inevitably to the internet.  One website, whose owner is Michael Uribe, had in previous instances, published photographs of other drivers whom have had similar accidents, in which death had resulted.

“It repulses me, as an advocate and as a person, what those creeps are doing,” Rumberger said of the posting of the images of the drivers who accidents resulted in death at Daytona, only three days apart during Speedweeks 1994.  “You know exactly where they were going with the Earnhardt photographs.”


Nevertheless, by the time, the suit settled, Mr. Uribe had been enjoining in the suit along with the media in its request.  He was excluded in the meeting that was part of the mediated settlement, in which the Orlando Sentinel, and its representatives were given permission to view the photographs along with Dr. Barry Myers, PhD, a specialist in head and neck injury, and holds a position as associate professor at Duke University,


In summary, this issue-

I will post Leslie Shade’s opinion;

“Leslie Regan Shade argues that the human right to privacy is necessary for meaningful democratic participation, and ensures human dignity and autonomy.  Privacy depends on norms for how information is distributed, and if this is appropriate.  Violations of privacy depend on context.  The human right to privacy has precedent in the United Nations Declaration of Human Rights: “Everyone has the right to freedom of opinion and expression; this right includes freedom to hold opinions without interference and to seek, receive and impart information and ideas through any media and regardless of frontiers.”[1] Shade believes that privacy must be approached from a people-centered perspective, and not through the marketplace.[2]”

maybe Kelly Siegler can help the State of FLorida…

” …death row is the typical destination for most of Siegler’s targets.”

Kelly Siegler is known as a giant-killer in Texas, having won high-profile prosecutions against some of the state’s best known, and most highly regarded, defense attorneys. Siegler began her career with the prosecutor’s office in Houston 15 years ago. Since then, her felony conviction rate at trial is 95 percent, and the wins include the convictions of clients of top-flight defense attorneys Richard DeGuerin, Joe Bailey, Stanley Schneider, Mike DeGuerin and George Parnham. She handles only big cases — she’s tried 13 capital murder cases and won death penalty verdicts in 12. [link is an old-best of houston 2008]


She resigned as Assistant district attorney, Harris Co., Texas DA office last year [May 9, 2008]. I wonder what she’s up to now.

Siegler rose to become a leading prosecutor. She has handled more high-profile cases than any other local prosecutor, possibly becoming the best known locally and nationally.

Most recently, she successfully argued to convict former coach David Temple of murdering his pregnant wife, Belinda, a Katy school teacher.

In 2004, she brought a bed before the jury to personally demonstrate how defendant Susan Wright butchered her husband by stabbing him 193 times.

After eight days of testimony, Siegler has the last word:

“What you’re left with is the word of Susan Lucille Wright, the word of a card-carrying, obvious, no doubt about it, caught red-handed, confirmed, documented liar.”

Now, it’s up to the jury to decide, and just as Siegler had feared, jurors have trouble seeing Susan as a murderer. But it’s hard for them to forget the blood-soaked bed, and they had it reassembled when they deliberated.

Two days later, they reached a verdict: guilty.

How much is a guilty verdict worth to the State of Florida? Maybe they can have the Pontiac Sunbird brought into the court room. Maybe a field trip to the site where the remains were found, even though the area has been totally gutted of any form of familiar foliage that was their when the 911 calls from Mr. Kronk came in ..3 of them, cleared with in-days of the remains being found.  Will the impact of standing in the area devoid of the trash and foliage be enough to influence the jury?

I think Ms. Lyon is a great choice, but Ms. Siegler has the appeal to both the jury,  the media, and the viewers.
