I wanted to give everyone a general heads-up to our readership of a "smear-shame" Squarespace blog "Voices of Jupiter FL" against Robert Krausankas, one of our friends and ELI team member.

Although Oscar and I best known for representing the cause on ELI, we have other notable members like Robert who have been a great friend and ally to the ELI cause. Robert (Buddhapi) has been part of ELI since 2009. He recently covered the Adlife Marketing / Joel Albrizio's $8,000 food image extortion since October. Robert's posts about them can be found here:

http://copyright-trolls.com/2.0/category/companies/adlife-marketing/
http://copyright-trolls.com/2.0/category/individuals/joel-albrizio/

Since October 2016, Robert has been threatened twice by Albrizio.  Once to "destroy" and "ruin" Robert's life: http://www.extortionletterinfo.com/forum/getty-images-letter-forum/joel-albrizio-(adlife)-allegedly-threatens-to-'destroy'-'ruin-life'-of-eli-membr/

Oscar Michelen wrote in response to those threats: http://copyright-trolls.com/2.0/adlife-marketing-joel-albrizio-gets-quick-law-lesson/

The 2nd time was to accuse Robert of copyright infringement because he shared and hot-linked a meme that was produced by someone else. http://www.extortionletterinfo.com/forum/getty-images-letter-forum/adlife-ceo-joel-albrizio's-attorney-daniel-shores-threatens-robert-over-meme/

Oscar Michelen, once again, set the record straight with Albrizio's lawyer: http://copyright-trolls.com/2.0/formal-response-to-latest-adlife-marketing-bullshit-letter/

Suddenly, out of nowhere a "Jessica Langston" who according to a FB page created on December 21, 2016 is a "stay-at-home parent" that goes out of "her" way to get Robert's attention through a FB message so that he can read "Voices of Jupiter Florida". The domain was registered on December 23, 2016. The first Squarespace post was made on December 22, 2016.  Purportedly, it is a group of "concerned parents and citizens" in Jupiter, FL whose purpose is to help clean up Jupiter, FL starting with Robert Krausankas and his blog, copyright-trolls.com. After all, in all of the city of Jupiter, Robert (website developer, website host, photographer, blogger, commentator, advocate) is the greatest threat to the citizens of Jupiter FL, right?

Some of the "eye-roll to the back of my head" accusations against Robert and how he is a horrible human being are:

1. He shared an image of a Rated-R image of a "porn troll" in this post:   http://copyright-trolls.com/2.0/porn-lawyers-indicted-on-criminal-charges-joel-albrizio-should-take-note/
It goes without saying it might make some people cringe but it is far from being true porn. People know true porn when they see it.

2. He sometimes uses an old photo that includes his daughter as a headshot photo. Somehow that is a horrible thing to do.

3. Robert sometimes uses 4-letter words and colorful language in his blog posts. ELI and copyright-trolls.com readers know that neither websites are catered to kids topics. We are discussing legal threats, legalized extortion, lawsuits, etc. It triggers very real anger, disgust, and other unpleasant emotions. And yes, 4-letter words and politically-incorrect rhetoric sometimes occur.

4. Supposedly, other "groups" in Washington State and Georgia are helping to "identify" other members associated with Robert. I don't suppose that those two "groups" might be Timmy McCormack (previously known as a Getty Images lawyer) and Linda Ellis (Dash Poet) both who were soundly trounced and embarrassed by the GA Supreme Court for trying to say I "stalked" Linda Elllis (when I never met or had any communications with her whatsoever).  http://www.extortionletterinfo.com/all-justices-concur-eli-wins-internet-free-speech-appeal-in-georgia-supreme-court/

5. April Brown, author of "Poetic Justice", mutual friend, critic of Dash Poet Linda Ellis, was also threatened by "Jessica Langston" for attempting to make a post in support of Robert. However, that post was blocked. Linda Ellis appears to have made a comment in support of that blog, but I am not sure if she has any idea if she knows who or what she is getting involved with given the anonymous nature of that website.

Quote
Good Afternoon April,

We have read and taken into consideration your e-mails we received this morning. While anyone can appreciate your loyalty and friendship with Robert we do not agree with any possibility of heroism associated with him...

Robert Krausankas is not a journalist but what appears to be an obsessive self destructive blogger. We have a short and long term goal with regards to Robert Krausankas.

Our best advice to you is...unplug your web site with regards to Linda Ellis and end all public humiliation of her.

Move on and enjoy your social life and active career.

While I personally make none of the go forward decisions, with the daily unfolding events both online and through public advertising vehicles it may be increasingly difficult to protect your reputation. 

Even more difficult will be the task to defend yourself financially from what appears likely to be impending litigation.


Even Muhammad Ali was not wise enough to get out on top. Please consider this while time is on your side.

Jessica

6. An open attack was published against Robert (a FB message was sent to Robert into reading the blog):

Quote
As a group we are developing tremendous momentum in a very short time period. It is overwhelming how many of you came forward even before the development of the blog about the actions and behavior of Robert Krausankas.

Financially we have done well and have raised more than double the monies necessary to retain the law firm in the Lauderdale area to represent our group.

The attorneys have asked for the following information in the first request for information to determine possible financial awards to pursue from Robert Krausankas and any other individuals or companies involved.

1. Please provide copies of any image or document created by you or your company reproduced by Robert Krausankas without expressed written permission.

2. Especially important are and images or documents altered and posted on any web site or entity authored by Robert Krausankas or anyone associated with Robert Krausankas, Copyright Trolls or Extortion Letter.

3. Please provide examples of any of the previously mentioned documents or images presented through any advertising or social media channel with external distribution.

4. Any known sources of income of Robert Krausankas. This can be earned or passive income.

5. Any other persons, companies or web sites acting on behalf or in conjunction with Robert Krausankas in any effort to distribute false information, defamatory statements or documents or images protected by either copyrights or non disclosure language.

Our goal will be to seek financial damages and to seek sources available to secure those damage awards.

7. The blog is supposedly to be doing "good" for Jupiter but decides to run down Robert's wife and name his son in the post. This is mighty upstanding behavior by "Jessica Langston".

8, The blog's restated purpose is to "work tirelessly to expose ALL individuals involved with Copyright Trolls and allow you, the public to determine what your business or personal relationships with this group should be going forward."

Bottom line, we don't yet know definitively WHO the true owner or writer of the "blog" is so far. Due the coincidental timing of its sudden appearance and the going out of its way to inform Robert to read it, I suspect it is someone from Albrizio's camp. Or it could be Joel himself writing. Time will tell.

I hope they didn't break too many brain cells coming up with the idea and executing it. I mean, wow, such originality, doxing with generic writing? That's a first for the internet! Good job, whoever they may be? Haha, right.

Keep up of the good work Robert! Better watch out though, they may create some backlinks or put some bad reviews on yelp. I just came up with that btw, hopefully they don't read this and steal my idea.

Most of the shit that is being posted is borderline laughable. As you all know I'm a stand-up guy, and don't hide from anything, I'm very transparent and don't hide behind anonymous sites, emails, pages ect.. Any normal person reading these posts would be quick to realize they are all bullshit..Not to mention the factual errors that are included. Trying to twist the fact that I use strong language and graphics to drive home points into that I'm some kind of "woman hater" or pervert is beyond ridiculous.. That would be like me suggesting that Joel Albrizio is like Woody Allen in the fact that he adopted an asain child..which I haven't.. He's attempting to make this personal, all the while I have only harped and wrote about his business practices...It is what is, I'll forge on knowing these trolls hate me for exposing them, and knowing that if even 1 person doesn't fall for their BS tactics and pay up I have done a good deed.

Remember I did not pick Adlife Marketing or Joel Albrizio out of the blue, this was largely his doing, by demanding extortionate amounts for run of the mill images that sold for $20.00...This is disgusting and perverted in its own right.
Most questions have already been addressed in the forums, get yourself educated before making decisions.

Any advice is strictly that, and anything I may state is based on my opinions, and observations.

I have a few friends around here..

I'm guessing this BS was written by a guy (at least 50 years old) under the name Jessica only because I don't know too many women who would right this.

I'll vouch for the fact that Robert is a stand-up guy, that he likes women, and that women like him.  :)

Rock on, Robert!

Some things to look at with this blog that makes it obvious it's just an attempted smear job. 

1)  I am thinking about moving to Jupiter because apparently Jupiter must be a utopia, since the blogs creation on 12/22/16 they can find nothing that needs attention or addressing in Jupiter other than Robert.

2) While they even quote Robert as saying he stands behind what he writes this "large group of concerned" citizens remains anonymous taking pot shots at Robert and his family. Stand behind what you write and come forward. 

3) The way Robert's name is bold texted and repeated constantly, anyone looking at it can see they are just trying for search engine results.

4) Talking about having the help of other groups in WA and GA (who could that possible be ;) )  I haven't heard a peep from Mr. McCormick since he went into the legalized pot growing business and I would doubt he would want to become involved again, especially after his stellar performance before the GA Supreme court and Ms. Ellis has been quite for some time as well.

I have know Robert for many years now, I have had countless conversations with him and have done and do business with him.  I know he is an honest person, devoted family man.  Robert I stand with you and you have my full support brother!



Every situation is unique, any advice or opinions I offer are given for your consideration only. You must decide what is best for you and your particular situation. I am not a lawyer and do not offer legal advice.

There has been an update on this story of "Voices of Jupiter Florida" smear blog against Robert. He has issued a big public statement/rebuttal.
