Today I have received a request via email from Mensur Omerbashich (omerbashich [firstname.lastname@example.org]) to remove the interview with Richard Hoagland (Richard C. Hoagland – Comet Elenin as a Time Capsule, Norway Attack & The Messengers of Horus), or remove the part mentioning him, on these grounds:
You are hereby requested to remove the video at: http://litcorner.net/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=4613:richard-c-hoagland-comet-elenin-as-a-time-capsule-norway-attack-a-the-messengers-of-horus&catid=49:mysteries-and-secrets, for privacy violation. Alternatively, you can edit out (remove) the portion of that video which directly violates my privacy rights by mentioning my full name and speaking of me as a private person in an unauthorized manner: 17:45-19:23.
In the above video, I am being mentioned in the context of my unpublished research. Under the Creative Commons license regulating release of unpublished research preprint http://lanl.arxiv.org/abs/1104.2036, this constitutes privacy as well as copyright violation in its own right, in addition to publicizing of my full name in the video material on your site and connecting my persona to doomsday theories. This could form the basis for legal action for ruining one's reputation.

Of course it is odd to direct the request to me as I am only embedding the material. The soundfiles are not on my domain, but on Radio Red Ice. And the assertion that it's about "unpublished research" is wrong, because he published his findings on his website (http://sites.google.com/site/omerbashich/). It might also be a fake e-mail. But because I have no desire to quibble about this (it's just not worth my time and attention and I feel I am not defending anything, because I am not the source of this material) I just unpublish the embedded interview. By the way if your are still interested in following it, you always can listen it at Red Ice Radio (or just use a search engine to find it).
