Dear All,

As of today I have ended my column and any connection with UFO MAGAZINE. The reason ? A threatening letter from UFO MAGAZINE'S attorney Julie S. Maresca. Why a letter from the attorney you might ask. Well it's because we are starting UFO MATRIX MAGAZINE here in the UK and Bill Birnes thinks he can copyright the phrase and the logo UFO in connection with a magazine. If anyone would like to see a copy of the attorney's letter I'll gladly supply a copy.

To be honest I find this a shameful way to carry on. I had offered cooperation to Nancy between the 2 publications and pointed out that we are not in competition with UFO MAGAZINE or anyone else for that matter. In my opinion this has nothing to do with protecting copyright etc, instead Bill Birnes simply does not want any other magazines around.

It's just a ridiculous state of affairs and I for one will have nothing more to do with UFO MAGAZINE ever no matter what. I've got this magazine since day one and it's now going on the bonfire.

Regards,

Philip Mantle.
Editor.
UFO MATRIX MAGAZINE.

I thought, by law, if you saw someone infringing on your copyright you had to take legal action or else you'd lose the copyright. Is that not the law? If true, then this has nothing to do with Bill monopolizing the word. It's what he has to do by law.

No, it's not the law as I understand it. You can own a copyright, generally which you've paid for. Examples of free copyright are all artists work. So, if the copyright has been paid for (presumably this is the case here) you can sue for relief or choose to ignore the infringement. However, this also appears to have international dimensions so a copyright in the US doesn't necessarily extend internationally. Most name copyrights like "British Airways" are pursued when someone else sets up an airline more or less saying "No, we aren't British Airways, but we are a British airline" won't wash.
