THIS IS A DEVELOPING STORY
The popular message board BELLGAB.COM is current redirecting to COAST TO COAST AM’s official website. The website Georgenoorysucks.com has also been given a direct to the same..
There does seem to be a hint of intrigue, however, just by judging from the link that BELLGAB now directs to:
It would be mighty strange, however, for a DMCA battle to play out this way. It’s certainly not typical that websites immediately redirect to another with the DMCA note .. Typically a battle over legal issues can take days or weeks, plus the owner of a site would be updated by the ISP prior to any takedown.
The other night when George Noory took to BELLGAB, he used the term war. Perhaps he wasn’t showing his cards and the war indeed has begun on the home turf of Art Bell fans..
The same provision of copyright law that allows for the takedown notice also allows the alleged infringer to file a counter notice. After sending your takedown notice to the ISP, the ISP will notify the alleged infringer of the notice. The infringer then can send a counter notice to the ISP declaring that the infringer “has a good faith belief that the material was removed or disabled as a result of mistake or misidentification of the material to be removed or disabled” and other requirements of Section 512 (g). At that point, the ISP is caught in the middle. By law, the ISP must repost the infringing material to its original location.
Unfortunately, the only option then to stop the infringement is to file a lawsuit asking the court to enter an injunction stopping the use of the copyright material
Art Bell posted a Facebook message saying that BELLGAB has been hacked. However, the DMCA Acquire link may prove something else..
There is also rampant speculation on other Twitter feeds and Facebook postings that BELLGAB was ‘sold ten days ago,’ and that the results of that sale are not apparent..
The HORROR REPORT is attempting to contact the owner of BELLGAB through Twitter along with other users who may have a better direct link to him.
