Network News: Battlefoam v. Blood of Kittens
This is the official announcement by Blood of Kittens that Battlefoam LLC has taken legal action against this site over a post made in March.
Everything in that post I believe is true, gathered from sources and material available from the Internet, and since being threatened with legal action, I have done subsequent research and gotten sworn statements from witnesses that further prove its truth. For the time being, while certain aspects of the case are pending, the original post in question has been taken down.
However, it will be back up as soon as possible, and in no way should the fact that I took it down be viewed as an admission of any wrong doing. I took it down to try and facilitate a constructive dialogue with the party who made the legal threat, Romeo Filip of Battlefoam. It has not seemed to help, but I don’t want it to be said that I did not try everything in my power to maintain the high ground. Romeo and Battlefoam seem to insist upon forcing me to prove my statements were true, in a court of law. Once I do, not only will I put the article back up, but I will put the judgment there too, as the ultimate proof of the truth of my statements.
To better understand what is going on here is Battlefoam’s original C&D and my legal response to it.

These documents are matter of public record and because lawyers are now involved, I cannot go into as much detail as I would like, but let these documents reflect exactly what this case is about.
Blood of Kittens takes its ability to present hard hitting news and information very importantly, and this site will continue to do so for as long as possible.
I was lucky enough to procure a pro-bono defense, but that didn’t stop me from incurring a sizable amount of legal costs. The money I would normally use for the hosting Blood of Kittens has been effected. In order for Blood of Kittens to operate I have to do something I thought I would never need to do, and ask the community for help with donations.
In light of a completely unrelated site take downs, I think it is essential, more than ever, to keep on doing what this site does, be it rumors, news, or blunt commentary about all aspects within our community. So, if you like to support that continuation please donate whatever you can, I don’t expect the donations to reach the level to pay back the money I have invested, but anything will help.
If by some miracle I get donations exceeding the funds lost, the overage will go to the organization that made it possible for me to get the amazing lawyers defending the site today.
The Online Media Legal Network.
OMLN provides an invaluable legal referral service, with their main goal to find pro-bono or reduce rate lawyers to defend online journalists and bloggers. So, if you don’t like Blood of Kittens at least consider donating to them, because defending journalism and freedom of speech is something everyone can get behind.
