    "Oh man"?

    After just watching the video, I don't think that this is the proper target market for competitors that have a lack of:footwork, in-fighting, ground fighting and/or weaponry skills. If you practice sticking your limbs out that far in these systems, they will be broken and/or cut off. It is very obvious that the promoter of this tournament holds NO RANK IN ANY S.E. Asian system. But at least you have Buzz on there to promote your lie. In this footage, Buzz is the only one that knows how to move. You will have a beeter chance getting practitioners from the commercialized systems and forums.

    By by the way, YOUR PDF on YOUR website is a BIG LIE as well. You are using Brother John's name, my Grand Tuhon's name and my name with out our permission as well as knowing WE WILL NOT BE THERE. THAT IS FRAUD and I WILL make sure that everyone in your MA community will find out quickly that YOU ARE A LIAR and FRAUD if our names do not come off of YOU FALSE PDF immediately.

    SULONG fits you well since your lies continue to progress!

    Sincerely, Guro Mike Snow

    Mr. Snow,

    I take offense on your direct angst toward my personal post. Your tone clearly shows you attitude and spirit for other martial artist and their respective organizations.

    Let's not beat around the bush and set the record straight. No footage of FMA was shown, so it's not reasonable to compare fighting styles. The FMA portion of the tournament was not used in respect for 'brother John' to not use his likeness in the video. Yes, John was a participant in that tournament which you call a lie.

    I'm promoting the Sulong Championship and held rank in an S.E. Asian Martial Art. I have the certificates to prove it. Signed by 'brother John'. I'm not sure if they're valid any longer, but I don't believe I have forgoten my teachings in these last two months.

    Your names have been remove from the false PDF's. Thanks for the proofreading.

    On 10/2 Nautilus wrote "I'm promoting the Sulong Championship "

    Previously in this thread you posted a link to my Youtube video to help promote this tournament on 8/26.
    Fine with me. The only people in it were you, me and John.
    It was listed as "Chicago Stickfighting 06" No event names were attached. It is what it is. Footage of a contest in Chicago.
    Now SULONG (I'll have to guess who that is but we know who is claiming to actually outright OWN this word. Am I in some sort of trouble for typing it here?) has reported a copyright violation with youtube and on the basis of this baseless assertion they have to take it down. (The Sulong Organization did not even exist at that time. We met about it much later to discuss it's founding.)
    Why? Were you aware? I had your verbal agreement to post this well over a year ago to help promote last year's tournament.
    Are you now recinding this agreement? Why not just let me know?
    And I own this footage. Taken with MY camera by Bill Anderson. There were no videotaping waivers required or offered at the time and no notifications that it was not allowed at an event open to the PUBLIC where I paid the organizer of the tournament my hard earned money.

    It seems that there is confusion over what/who/how copyright works. As a professional web designer, web host and photographer, I know a bit about them. I'm not a lawyer, so none of this should be taken as legal advice.

    Regarding words, you can't copyright them. Says so right on the US Copyright site.

    Regarding photos taken at a PUBLIC event, these tend to fall under "Does the photo subject expect privacy?" and "Is it a question of national security?" as well as journalism rules. So you can go there and take pictures and post them in a news sense without worry in most cases. Stating "These are from the XYZ event" doesn't violate law.

    Video tends to fall into the same category.

    You may attend an event, and take photos and video as you will, IF THE EVENT ALLOWS IT, and post it, and usually be within the law. You can't sneak into the ladies rest room however as there is an expectation of privacy, you can't shoot up a womans skirt, because there is an expectation of privacy, and you can't shoot on the bridge of the latest military attack cruiser because it's a matter of national security. A karate competition? It's neither private nor a security issue, so shoot away. If they tell you to stop, then stop, otherwise they can ask you to leave, and if you dont you're then trespassing. But that's got nothing to do with copyright.

    As to who owns the word "Sulong", a Norman Basile applied for a registration to trademark the term "SULONG" on 2008-09-17, in regards to it's use as a registered service mark for "Entertainment services in the nature of live mixed martial arts (MMA) events; Martial arts instruction; Operating of martial arts' schools; Operating of martial arts' studios; Organizing live mixed martial arts events and competitions; Presentation of mixed martial arts (MMA) events" with a first use claim of 2007-09-14. This application is currently pending and has neither been accepted nor rejected as of the last update to the USPTO system 2008-09-29.

    In my opinion, if it's passed, it simply restricts someone else from naming a MMA event, school or organization SULONG. It doesn't stop you from calling your car dealership that however, and prior use by other parties would probably factor in, as would it's being a common word.

    But discussing the Sulong event, or the "Sulong Negosyo" or the "Sulong CARHRIHL" or or "Wong Sulong" or even the "The Parit Sulong Massacre" violate no copyright or trademark laws.


    A better use of everyone's time would be to repair the damage in the martial arts community that the actions of a few and resulting anger backlash are causing. Much of the crap that's been tossed up concerning this and the now former "NagaSulong" event should have been handled offline, and in a more professional manner.

    Again, none of the above should be construed as legal advice, nor official FMATalk policy. I'm speaking as myself, from my experience.
