The DozierInternetLaw / Direct Buy case comes closer to mainstream media attention

The DirectBuy home improvement firm has been the subject of numerous investigations, and Dozier Internet Law‘s “cyberlawyers” mishandling of a client’s case made the Franchise Times. So both companies are used to bad publicity from their business practices. Now it appears that their lawsuit against Infomercial Scams (check out the Public Citizen and tdaxp summaries) is creeping ever so close to mainstream media coverage.

Walter Olson of Overlawyered, who appears on Fox News, Headline News, and other shows as a legal expert, has an excellent case on the Direct Buy / Dozier case titled “Nastygram: Don’t you dare post this nastygram on the web.”

Read it.

Additionally, South Dakota Politics, a blog featured prominently in the real-life election thriller Daschle vs. Thune, also joins the fray.

And if all that isn’t enough to attract your attention, John Dozier’s bizarre public statements have attracted a second post by Public Citizen.

Review of "Cool it: The skeptical environmentalist’s guide to global warming" by Bjorn Lomborg

The New York Times report on Vice President Al Gore and the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Chanel winning the Nobel Peace Prize makes Bjorn Lomborg’s book, Cool It, all the more timely. Dr. Lomborg is a founder of the “Copenhagen Consensus,” a scientific approach that provides specific steps to making the world a better place.

Cool It is based on costs and benefits. While Lomborg’s book does not use the term, Bjorn is clearly annoyed by global warming religionists who see climate change as an issue of good and evil, rather than pluses and negatives. For instance, consider the (accurate) claim that if temperatures warm, more people will do from heat in the summer. Now consider the (equally accurate) claim that as temperatures warm, many more people will not die from cold in winter. Lomborg compares these two facts, and shows that over all, climate change saves more people than it kills via temperature. So he advices the reader to “cool it” when it comes to climate change hysteria.


Don’t panic

Other incidents of global warming hysteria are addressed at as well. Some polar bear populations are declining. However, polar bear populations over all are increasing, and those that witness declining populations are in places that are getting colder. Similarly, a carbon tax would slow down warming, saving a percentage of land on island nations that may be lost to global temperatures. But the growth from not having any carbon tax would allow those same countries to be much richer, allowing them to afford to protect more of their land from the ocean.

For topic after topic, area after area, Lomborg applies policy science to the anti-climate change debate and finds the alarmists to be doing much more harm than good. Because Bjorn believes that global warming is caused by human beings, he proposes a modest carbon tax as part of a much wider effort. Bjorn Lomborg concludes with a call for a generational mission, but one that (unlike various CO2-centric ideas) actually might de a lot of good: eradicating malaria, greenery in cities, and economic development.

Tom Barnett, whose recommendation is the reason I bought this book, things it’s “cool” that Gore won the Nobel Price. After reading Cool It, I can’t agree. Gore’s alarmism is counterproductive, harming both science as an enterprise and humanity as a species. The very best that can be said about Al Gore’s work is that, hopefully, it will mostly be ignored.

Online, Frontier Channel has Lomborg’s presentation, The Real State of the World. And Catholicgauze reviews Lomborg’s companion op-ed, “Chill out.

Plagiarism and the Dozier Law Firm

Dozier Intenret Law is tied to the world of plagiarism in three ways. One is by coincidence. The other by suspicion. The last is indisputable.

Coincidentally, the story of Dozier acting as hired thugs for DirectBuy has been picked up by Plagiarism Today. The article goes into some depth, link to the four factors of fair use and is very worth reading.

By suspicion, the open letter posted on Dozier’s home page cites cases first uncovered by Curtis Weeks, as I discussed in my preliminary case study. It is these stories that let Dozier post “UK Court finds that business dispute demand letter protected by copyright laws” as “Latest News” at the firm’s homepage. But ultimately, such cases may be straightforward to find, so nothing can be proven.

Indisputably,, the rant by John Dozier posted on New York Personal Injury Law Blog includes material lifted, without attribution, from lawdit.co.uk (Curtis found this, too!).

Why anyone would want to hire a lawyer that’s so apt destroying their client’s reputation and violationg the copyright of others is beyond me.

Ars Doziera

Ars Technica, a popular website on the technical arts that includes breaking news, user forums, and other features, prominently features the Dozier Internet Law / DirectBuy scandal by comparing it to another bizarre lawsuit.

The Ars Technica article focuses mostly on the contributions of Public Citizen and Willam Patry (who, I learned, is also Google’ top copyright lawyer).

One of the hardest things about following the story is how quickly people are coming forward. Wicked Boring discusses this as a strategic lawsuit against public participation, New York Attorney Malpractice Blog quotes an length an earlier essay, Citizen Media Law Project is not impressed, and Curtis (who previously discovered by John Dozier is a plagiarist) tries to throw cold water on collective non-violenct self defense

That’s it for now!
