I took a quick look at WHOIS info for the registrant info for that domain, and it would appear that the gent/lady in question would prefer not to have phone or physical contact (surprise, surprise).

You might consider looking up his ISP's phone number and giving them a little jingle, to see if they might be willing to offer up an address (or phone number) for the enterprising entrepreneur, prior to just slamming the doors on the site.

Might that be the same as:

Sierra Video Productions
PO Box 153
Big Creek, CA 93605
Phone: 559 269-2480
Cell: 893-3145

I don't know. It was just the first thing I could find that seemed to match. But I don't mean to ruin anyone else's reputation. Any way we can verify?

I don't think so.. That place is in Fresno county and ole Smelvin registered his FBN (Fictious Business Name) in Orange County..

But hell I could be wrong, two states up in Washington.. So maybe someone from CA knows if Big Creek is in Orange County or not..

Maybe Mark could cross-reference his sales records and come up with a match to some of the aforementioned name/address/phone possibilities?

Wow, this is getting really interesting. Westminster is very close to me. Perhaps I should set up a sting at the local Post Office. I could get some of those neat-o lipstick cams and a meatball sub. Nothin' says stake out like a meatball sub...

Not Entirely Related But...

I have been getting visits to my website referred from a russian site.

I don't speak russian but tried using a translator to figure it out... which was taking too long, but it seems to be a site like dvinfo.net and the russians are studying our videos and pricing.

Are we winning the wedding videography race?

LOL! Dave is popular with them...


This only obtained rule for which it is possible to banit' me to the pair with the data by post .
The disturbances of copyrights I do not see, therefore as references they go deliberately from the ultimate source and rightholders lay out them as demki on their sites for the free running off.
In the division "let us show all our of videotvoreniya" they be present the same similar references to our Russian sites.
Did not want to leave this list only to itself; therefore placed everything for all.

This thread was hanging out in the Wedding forum, but I thought it would be more appropriate for our TCB forum. Also edited the title to more accurately reflect what's going on.

Mark,

Aside from legal action about stealing your clips/creative product, I would think you also have a potential personal suit against him. He is using your image (self) without your permission and posting it in a manner that was not intended when you agreed to appear (in your OWN video product) He needs to have a model release from you.

Now that Chris has moved this thread to TCB, maybe some of our more knowlegble legal folks will chime in.

Good luck.

My thoughts after reading through this thread.

Can the California Attorney General's office be contacted? Many state attorney general offices will go after stuff like this.

Local tv investigative reporters also like stuff such as this. Especially if they are protecting the consumer (brides in this case) from fraud. Wouldn't it be fun to see ol' Melvin with a full sized ENG cam in his face being asked some hard questions about his business practices on the 6:00 news.

Those folks who are on the Windows platform might like to check out Swishmax which is a killer Flash making application. Much more user friendly than Macromedia's own version. This is in reference to the protective measures outlined earlier in this thread wrt video on the web.

Good luck Mark and thanks to all the others who have offered to help and to Pat for his sleuthing skills. I can't ever get all this stuff out of Google.
