For someone who speaks so admirably about individual freedoms, this reeks of hypocrisy.

Fixed the link for you. I think Dean is just pissed about the "She's on Fire".

I think it's supposed to be Not All Roses.

Funny shit. I hope he doesn't comply with the C&D, if there really was one. There's absolutely no question that's this is protected speech.

I guess my sense of humor isn't as good as I thought. I meant that this was Dean Potters way of getting even after the Steph Davis verse in She's on Fire.

Jay, I saw Gym Hoes performed live one foggy night this summer before it was released. It was a couple months before I got to hear it again. Have you checked out that booty song? I nearly shit.

*Prepares to beat dead horse*

Someone on that forum nailed it: Dean went out of his way to publicize the ascent by shooting it in still and video, so now he has to deal with the reprecussions of being an idiot (in this case).

He pissed a lot of people off; not saying we should burn the guy at the stake, but getting lawyers involved for defamation after illegaly ascending (and publicizing) the arch is like punching someone, breaking your hand, and then suing them for having too hard a face.

What's most funny about this is in the lawyer's letter to Odub, he sites Dean's loss of future earnings due to Odub's song.

Dean is most responsible for his loss of future earnings. He got himself canned from Patagonia and lost his alledged $60K/yr gig with them. Dean needs sue himself for his loss of future earnings.

He's nothing but a damn hypocrite. He want's publicity for his climbing and then when he gets it (via a means that he didn't intend), he wants to sue. Geesh.

Heh, loss of future earnings... I'm trying my best to think of a single instance in which Potter's lawyer could even come close to proving that in court. It's BEYOND speculation to say that a song written by a MINOR artist can have any financial consequences to Potter. I mean, if this whole thing hadn't been brought up, I never would have even heard of Odub, and I'm sure there are plenty more in my boat.

just in case you're not paying attn to the other thread. apparently the cease and desist is no more.

Odub posted the following:

In reply to:
Thanks KD. Thanks everybody.

I got a phone call today from Deans Attorney, claiming that Dean knew nothing of the Cease and Desist. However, 15 minutes earlier, I got a call from the guy who filmed the arch video, telling me the same thing. Sounds a little overdone to me. I'm not buyin it.

Regardless, the attorney said, and I quote, "Can we consider this matter closed?".

He had no idea the can of worms it would open up. Seems he and his client have the same abilities of forethought, or lack thereof.

He also thanked me profusely for not putting his name in the letter when I posted it.

Well, at least the lawyer did exactly what he should do -- cover his client's ass.

Agreed, I wouldn't buy it either. That's not what the attorney wrote in his original letter:

Original_Cease_And_Desist wrote:
My name is <attorney name deleted> and I represent Mr. Dean Potter. It has come to my client’s attention that you have publicly released a song titled “Not All Roses” (hereinafter “NAR”)

So is he saying that he lied in his original letter about deans knowledge and initiation? Isn't this grounds for disbarment?

FUCK. The fact that anyone cares is 99.9% of the problem. I am drunk. My chin is a little skinned up because riding handle bars is dangerous. Someone in some ICU in some hospital somewhere just unplugged their soul mate from a ventilator because it was the right thing to do. Leave Dean alone. I dont know the guy but fuck --why not root for happiness instead of basking in the misteps of others? Get some perspective and move on. And teh best part of it all... Dean will forever pull harder than all you donuts.
