LEGAL LOL UPDATE: Personal Letter to Karlos Marx

Earlier today. Karlos got around to cleaning up the Communal Electronic Mailbox which has been packed full to the rim with spam emails and fraudulent credit card charges since early Fev 2012.

fightin the law

the law wins every time

Aside from some new content from contributors, the MARP received a very special notice personally addressed to our founding editor, Karlos Marx [the first letter was just a reblog of the second letter addressed to WordPress about us].

Obviously, we did not comply with the notice and are instead posting it online here for everyone to read.

FOR THE RECORD: even though the MARP has suggested that people download the McGillLeaks documents and email leads to us, no one has actually sent anything, except for these goddamn lawyers.

Attached is full correspondence between WordPress Admin and Karlos Marx.

FROM KARLOS TO WORDPRESS 6 MAR:
ok. should i simply remove the content?

with regards to MiltonRevolutionaryPress (i have nothing to do with McGillLeaks) the content can be removed.

with regard to what McGillLeaks is doing — it should be protected under the Canadian whistleblower legislation

love,
KARLOS

FROM WORDPRESS TO KARLOS 6 MAR:
If you agree to remove all links to the content in any download location (MegaUpload, etc.) as well as delete the file that you have uploaded to your Media library we will reactivate your blog immediately so you can do so. You will need to notify us that you have removed the material and we will check to ensure that you have done so.

FROM KARLOS TO WORDPRESS 6 MAR:
will do asap…
can i still link to mcgillleaks.wordpress.com?

FROM WORDPRESS TO KARLOS 6 MAR:
You may link to this but you may not link to any sources of the files that are in dispute in this matter. Please note that you cannot post any quoted material from them either.

I have unlocked your site so you can make the appropriate edits. Please notify us when you have done so.

FROM KARLOS TO WORDPRESS 6 MAR:
i have removed all the documents and links which i fear were unacceptable.
please get back to me as to whether or not it is ok.

FROM WORDPRESS TO KARLOS 7 MAR:
> please confirm that the site is A-OK? note that all new content follows the
> rules.

We are waiting to hear from the complainant.

FROM KARLOS TO WORDPRESS 7 MAR:
they will likely continue to ask for more until the site is completely destroyed. the mcgill legal department is currently threatening the mcgill daily, an independent student newspaper that has existed since 1911, with a lawsuit unless they remove their entire journalistic article on mcgillleaks.

at least, can i request that you do not offer my personal information to mcgill without a subpoena — although i’m certain you deal with this sort of conflict all the time, i am a indebted and weak student attempting to speak truth to power and spread information.
–with love, karlos

FROM WORDPRESS TO KARLOS 7 MAR:
We do not reveal such information without a subpoena or order and we will (unless ordered not to by a court) notify you if one is served.
