Hey! Check it out, I just got a cease and desist letter about the image linked in this post.

Including

Anna Ma/ltz
Bridge Art Fair
The Art Newspaper


Re the image titled: Nat/asha, P/eter, Z/ack & I/mo

The artist Anna M/altz has not requested on any occasion or in any form permission to exploit this image for commercial gain. Nor has she received permission to offer this image of myself, my husband and my children for sale or reproduction.

She does not have permission to sell or publish and other images of any of us.

Failure to comply as of now will result in litigation.

We expect The Bridge Fair to immediately withdraw the image from all their publicity.

We expect The Art Newspaper not to publish this image in any further issues including that of the Sat 13th October.

We expect The Little Tree Gallery at The Bridge Art Fair or any subsequent shows, to remove these images from display and sale including images ordered but not yet printed or delivered.

We expect any other galleries anywhere including on line galleries exhibiting and selling Anna M/altz's selling images of us to withdraw these images from sale immediately.

We will seek compensation for any expenses we incur in seeking to have this image withdrawn from sale and circulation.

If you copied it and didn't pay for it, or you did pay for it and the person you got it from didn't have permission, you're vulnerable. They C&D'ed you and unless you've got a strong reason to keep it up, you should probably remove it from your server. If you linked it from another server a C&D shouldn't matter. (So, if you found someone else's version and linked that, that's on them.)

Probably oughta google the names in question and see what pops.

You'd think they'd give word limits rather than page limits to avoid this kind of perfidy.

Adjust everything a little. Move to .9" margins. Use 9.5 point font. Reformat bulleted lists as paragraphs. Replace repeated phrases with acronyms.

A serious tip, from someone who does this sort of cutting down way too much -- give it to another associate who doesn't know about the case, and ask them to edit solely for length. Shouldn't take more than 3 or 4 hours tops. Nobody can edit their own work as well as fresh eyes. Offer to do the same for him or her in exchange.

34 -- The FRAP has gone to word counts. Most jurisdictions with page counts have stricl limits on margins, font size, what can be in a footnote (which are single spaced, while text in double spaced).

I'd start be deleting extra citation. You don't need 3 cases for a proposition if the first two cover it, and for the simple and obvious propositions -- summary judgment standard, for example -- you might as well go bare. If you have to have a string cite or two, then maybe putting all cases in footnotes will get you a page or so. Obviously, any paragraph with less then 3 words in its last line needs some careful editing. That's maybe half a page, but it it moves section breaks, then you'll have accomplished something.

Yes, Garamond is smaller than Times. If you've got Garamond Condensed, better still.
Also, Emerson is right--wherever you have "Laughing Out Loud", replace with LOL. Replacing "Rolling on the floor laughing my ass off" with ROTFLMAO will save a lot of space.

Everything I have ever worked for in my life has been sullied in one day, by one person.

Two people.

I'm sick and cold, sore cold, and fear I may be nearing the end. Who will administer extreme unction?

you you mean for some reason harvard, yale, william & mary, rutgers, and god only knows where else were only colleges before that, not universities?

Don't forget St. John's College, nee King Williams' School. Of course, SJC is still not a university.

Isn't Cornell's hotel management program the best in the country? I thought they were proud of it.

106: I know, kid bitzer, that fucking pissed me off too. the quote he brought in to support this alleged hyper-partisan unfortunateness on ezra's part was...totally orthogonal to any such claims. weirdly so, like, did he think that in addition to not clicking through to read the post, we might well not read the stuff he quoted on his own blog? just because it hurts to get pwned by a whippersnapper.

115: Yes, but within Cornell Hotelies are mainly reputed for their light workload. I don't know what the program is really like though; maybe that's just freshmen.

Deserving of aggressive, threatening public vitriol, definitely not.

I'm sorry. His email to that woman was aggressive and assholish, and you know, all she did was reprint the man's own words. Tough titty.
