    Cease and Desist!!!!  

 
In light of yet more intimidation attempts by freak-out artist

https://twitter.com/TarotDarrow/status/408007885587628032 - I decided to do some research on the "CEASE AND DESIST!!!!" cries reminiscent of a black cat screeching like he was losing a testicle.  

The tweeter references San Diego as her local LE so I started there.  Found a few interesting sites. This www.workmadeforhire.net/the-rest/cease_desist/ is an interesting and fun read.  First the author informs us what a Cease and Desist Letter is - a real letter, drafted by a real lawyer.  Then what it is not - Legally Binding.  She also includes this disclaimer - quote: "Katie is not your lawyer! So don't take anything on this site as legal advice!"

I found an interesting site: [url=http://www.avvo.com/free-legal-advice/Internet Posts]www.avvo.com/free-legal-advice/Internet%20Posts[/url] - A lot of questions have already been asked and several lawyers chime in with advice.  
 
Examples:

"Do I have a defamation/harassment case?" Partial answer: "Free speech may prevent the government from helping you but Facebook can control what is done on their site if Facebook agrees with you."

"Is there anything that can be done about someone stalking, harassing, and impersonating me?" One answer: "It has been my experience that the authorities will not become involved in an Internet dispute unless there is a credible threat of bodily harm or immediate financial loss (e.g. bank fraud.)" www.avvo.com/legal-answers/is-there-anything-that-can-be-done-about-someone-s-1499489.html

Here is a question / answers from residents of San Jose: www.avvo.com/legal-answers/can-an-internet-defamation-lawsuit-be-filed-agains-1458835.html

There is a wealth of info on that site.  Finally Copyright violations are the most common reason for C&Ds. Those are addressed here >> www.traverselegal.com/copyright-infringement/copyright/cease-and-desist-letter-dos-and-don%e2%80%99ts-a-copyright-attorney%e2%80%99s-perspective/
