I think it important to inform members of NMB that Eric Tulin, who posts here on NMB as estcrh, has copied the text and images of an article I have written for members of the Samurai Armour Forum without either notifying me nor asking my permission and posted it on a website he runs under the name of http://samuraiantiqu....proboards.com/ In view of the fact that this article was clearly stated to be copyright it is nothing short of a flagrant act of theft of my intellectual property. This is not the first time Eric Tulin has done this - a whole section on his website headed 'The teachings of Ian Bottomley' contains numerous articles I have published, some of which has involved many years of research. Despite the fact that I have repeatedly demanded that he stops stealing my work he persists in doing so, even having the temerity to state that my protestations are written by someone else.
Ian, you have never once contacted me personally, you know how to do that since we have emailed back and forth for years. You do not seem to have a problem with peoples copyrighted texts being translated and distributed on the "secret section" of the samurai forum. Does this not in fact make the samurai forum a form of criminal enterprise?
You had no problem with Dave T translating and distributing three chapters from Sasama's copyrighted book which is intellectual property that involved many years of research, did you protest his copy right infringement, no you did not.
All that has happened is that your essays were placed were anyone can read them, can you explain what you have against that? Your post here has nothing to do with the thread, I think you have been influenced by Dave T's hatred of me, didnt you openly write and post your essays for people to learn from? You seem very angry, I have NEVER done anything to you to deserve your present actions. Life is short, do your thing and I will do mine.
Dave T handed out copies of Trevors UNPUBLISHED!!!!! third book, without permission!!!!!, he send me a copy, I have his EMAILS!!!, what do you think about that....not an essay that was already public but a WHOLE BOOK...now talk about THEFT!!!!! of intellectual property which involved many years of research, what do you say about that? Maybe you should discuss this with your adopted son....humm.
I REALLY think you should back off before this whole thing gets out of hand...im just saying.,.,.,
