Sarah Palin has been the target of the left from the very day she walked onto the public stage, and their venom continues on. The problem is, they don’t like being exposed, and now that they’ve been, they’re crying foul and one of the whiners has brought her issues to my door (via email)…
Subject: Copyright Violation
The video contains five images which I own and did not give permission to be used.
They appear at 3:34, 6:37, 6:40, 6:45 and 7:05.
This video has already been taken down at multiple video sharing sites for the copyright infringement.
I guess that’s supposed to impress me.
I state UNDER PENALTY OF PERJURY that:– I am the owner, or an agent authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed.
– I have a good faith belief that the use of the material in the manner complained of is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law; and
– This notification is accurate.
– I understand that abuse of this tool will result in termination of my YouTube account.

You may contact me at this email address or by phone at xxx-xxx-xxxx.
Please let me know if you require any further information.
For reasons of common courtesy, I didn’t publish Ms. Devon’s (aka AKMuckraker) phone number.
And after further review (as Executive Director of NMATV), I will not censor the video in question.
The Fair Use Clause of the Copyright Law of 1976 allows for the rebroadcast of copyrighted works for the purpose of education, commentary, and criticism.
While Ms. Devon feels she may have been violated, I think the only violation is that these malicious liberal thugs got caught, have been publicly outed, and are justifiably paranoid of potential legal trouble from Mrs. Palin. Note, Ms. Devon doesn’t dispute the content of the video; just the fact her mug was inserted therein.
Meaner things have been done to Sarah Palin.
Oh, and by the way… here’s the video.
