Re: Your March 10,1996 response re:Notice of Objection
The Internet Multicasting Service is a 501(c)(3) non-profit
corporation. We provide a series of activities related to
the public good and conduct research into the potential
uses of the global Internet computer network.
I'd like to suggest that you and your attornies address their
correspondance, in writing, to the following address:
The Internet Multicasting Service
Attn: Legal Claim to the History of Western Thought
Suite 1155, National Press Building
Washington, D.C. 20045
You've alleged that we've broken a law, but have not explained
what law that might be. You mentioned the copyright laws,
but I'm sure your legal advisors will be happy to talk to you
about the purpose and scope of that body of law, particularly
as it applies to claims such as yours.
You might consider wasting the time of some people who actually
have some money. I'm not sure what you propose to accomplish
by your current campaign of legal harrassment of us.
