Due to a former team member “asking nicely” to remove any and all content in which they are named, appear or are heard, adding that “You do not hold copy-writes to anything that depicts my voice or picture, nor to anything that I have copies of during investigations, because to do that, it would have to be a shared copy-write, and … that does not exist with these files,” much of our most compelling evidence has to removed from YouTube, this blog, and our website, despite having always clearly stated that “all audio, video, and still photos belongs to Wolf Paranormal Investigations.”
This is not the first time that a removal demand has been made. This is also the reason why clients must sign investigation and release agreements prior to an investigation, and why team members must sign agreements stating that even if they leave the team at some point in the future, any content in which they are named, seen, or heard remains the sole property of Wolf Paranormal Investigations, and can be released to the public for consideration and discussion.
I am currently reviewing copyright law with a lawyer to determine our rights as a team, and to ensure that these issues do not happen again.
Thank you for your understanding and continued support.
