Here are the four letters (the letter runnersworld.com’s lawyer sent us, our reply, the lawyers second letter, our 2nd reply) that detail the growing legal fight between Letsrun.com and Runnersworld.com (Oh wait, according to their lawyer, us even writing Runnersworld.com is against the law).

RE:      Rodale Inc.

 

Dear Messrs. Johnson:

 

Please be advised that our firm represents Rodale Inc., publisher of Runner's World Magazine and runnersworld.com.  A review of your website indicates that an article published on Rodale's runnersworld.com website, the Peter Snell Interview, has been republished on letsrun.com without authorization by Rodale.

 

The article has clearly been copied, verbatim, without permission.  This unauthorized copying by letsrun.com of Rodale's copyrighted content constitutes copyright infringement.

 

The purpose of this letter is to demand that letsrun.com immediately cease and desist the unauthorized and infringing publication of the Runner's World Peter Snell article and any other Rodale content copied by ;etsrun.com without permission from Rodale Inc.  We demand removal of the aforementioned article and any other such content on or before May 13, 2002 from the letsrun.com website.

 

If letsrun.com does not remove the article by that date and fails to provide Rodale with assurances that no future acts of infringement will occur, Rodale is prepared to take any and all necessary steps to protect and enforce its rights under the United States Copyright Act.

 

Thank you for your prompt attention to this urgent matter.

 

                                                                                    Very truly yours,

 

 

                                                                                    ALLEN I. TULLAR

RE:      Your threatened lawsuit to LetsRun.com

 

Ms. Morf, Mr. Burfoot, and Mr. McGinley,

 

Please be advised that we received a letter from your law firm indicating that our website – LetsRun.com – is violating US copyright law because a visitor to our largely unmoderated message boards posted the runnersworld.com Peter Snell Interview without permission from Rodale, Inc.

 

We find it very ironic that you are threatening to sue us over a visitor’s posting of a single item of runnersworld.com copyrighted material on the LetsRun.com message board.  Over the weekend, we did investigative research into the runnersword.com message boards and find no fewer than four blatant and much more extensive cases of copyright infringement of LetsRun.com material.

 

Let’s compare the offenses.   The one  instance of copyrighted material that was posted on our site was an interview of approximately 900 words and no where did the posted material on our board clearly indicate that it was copyrighted material from another site.  In comparison, the four instances of copyright infringement of our material on your site totals more than 40,500 words and three of the four cases clearly include the term “Copyright © LetsRun.com All Rights Reserved” on your website.  Moreover, the one small instance of copyright infringement that allegedly occurred on our site took place on May 9, 2002 and was removed the very next day - May 10, 2002.  The four instances of copyrighted material on your site date from Feb. 23, Feb. 22, Feb. 22, and Feb. 22, 2002 and still have yet to be removed even though three of the instances clearly show that the material is copyrighted LetsRun.com material. 

 

We are not lawyers and really can’t afford to hire any at this time so we are relying on your lawyers’ expertise to help us here.  According to your lawyers’ definition of copyright infringement, runnersworld.com has for the last 72 days allowed approximately 40,500 words of LetsRun.com copyrighted material to appear on its website in clear violation of US copyright laws. 


We therefore are contemplating filing a counter lawsuit for greater damages.  The amount of our copyrighted material that has been stolen from us and posted on your website is more than 45 times greater than the amount of similar material from your site that was posted on our site (45,500 words versus 900).  Moreover, our copyrighted material has remained on your site for 72 times as long than your material remained on ours (72 days and counting versus 1 day). Thus the damages inflicted on us by Rodale, Inc and runnersworld.com are 3,240 times (45*72=3,240) greater than the damages we inflicted on you.

 

Now to try to estimate a value of the damages inflicted on both parties.  Considering that we believe you pay $30 dollars per interview, we think that the minimum value of the damage we caused you is $30 dollars.  Likely, it’s much more as we know of other running sites that pay approximately $75 dollars per interview. Thus we feel that we owe you somewhere between $30 and $75 in damages. In comparison, our calculations indicate that runnersworld.com owes us a minimum of $97,200 and a maximum of $243,000 in compensatory damages since our damages are 3,240 times greater than yours (and counting).


We want to thank your lawyers for letting us know about this great potential revenue source.  We were struggling to make ends meet, train for the 2004 Olympics full-time, and operate LetsRun.com all at the same time.  Thankfully your magazine, a major force in the running community, has come to our rescue. We will definitely give you praise if we make the 2004 Olympic team. Thank you for your support.

 
We hope you do sue us.

 

See you in court,

Robert and Weldon Johnson

 

PS. Actually, we just received a follow up letter from your lawyer and it appears we are going to have to write you guys another letter. He claims the copyright infringement of the Peter Snell argument was not only the message board post but also the simple linking that occurs on our front-page. That’s ridiculous (and something that you do all the time on Runnersworld.com) but we’ll get back to you on that one. Would you please let your lawyer know what you are doing on your own website?

 

PPS. Next time don’t you think it would be a lot easier (and cheaper from your perspective) to send us an email letting us know that someone on our largely unmoderated boards has violated US copyright laws?

 

PPPS. Additionally, in the future, please let us know where specifically on our large site the infringement has occurred. This is actually a stipulation of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act – “Identification of the material that is claimed to be infringing or to be the subject of infringing activity and that is to be removed or access to which is to be disabled, and information reasonably sufficient to permit the service provider to locate the material.” (emphasis added by us)

 

We have given you this same courtesy.  On the following 87 pages (no joke – it’s that long), you will find the instances of copyright infringement of our material that occurs on runnersworld.com as well as the links to where to find the material so you can take it down.

RE:     Rodale Inc. - Unauthorized copying of Peter Snell Interview

 

Dear Mr. Johnson:

 

I am responding to the voice mail you left Friday, May 10, 2002, concerning the above-referenced matter.

 

By way of clarification, my original letter referenced a Rodale article featured on letsrun.com.  The hyperlink, when clicked on, produced a verbatim copy of an interview with Peter Snell originally published on runnersworld.com.  That interview, reproduced in its entirety, was stripped of all Rodale ads and navigational information and aids.  Contrary to your assertion, to the extent that the entire article was reproduced by letsrun.com, that republication hardly constitutes fair use.

 

Furthermore, it appears that the interview continues to run on the letsrun.com website and now appears below the fold under the heading "A Must Read!!!!!".  Again, clicking on the hyperlink fails to take viewers directly to Rodale's runnersworld.com website.  Indeed, use of the Rodale trademark runnersworld.com by letsrun.com is also infringing.  Letsrun.com has not created a hyperlink to Rodale's runnersworld.com website.  Instead, viewers who click on the hyperlink are actually prevented from reaching the runnersworld.com website and are denied access to its services and message.  In short, letsrun.com has appropriated Rodale's trademark in order to purvey its own Internet services - the letsrun.com website to an audience intending to access Rodale's website.

 

The actions of letsrun.com clearly constitute copyright and trademark infringement and unfair competition.  Demand is hereby made that letsrun.com immediately remove any and all Rodale


content from its website and remove all hyperlinks utilizing Rodale trademarks by close of business tomorrow, Tuesday, May 14, 2002.  If letsrun.com fails to comply with this cease and desist letter, my client will pursue its rights under the Copyright and Lanham Act.

 

                                                                                    Very truly yours,

                                                                       

                                                                                    ALLEN I. TULLAR

To: ALLEN I. TULLAR - ATTORNEY AT LAW at GROSS, MCGINLEY, LABARRE & EATON, LLP

CC: Claudia Morf, Sr. V.P./CFO (**@rodale.com)

Amby Burfoot  (**@rodale.com)

RE:     Rodale Inc. - Unauthorized copying of Peter Snell Interview

 

Dear Mr. Tullar:

 

We are responding to the letter you wrote on Monday, May 13, 2002, concerning the above-referenced matter.

 

Let us correct a few errors in your most-recent letter. For some reason you fail to understand that we have not reproduced the runnersworld.com Peter Snell Interview on the LetsRun.com site.  You stated, “Contrary to your assertion, to the extent that the entire article was reproduced by letsrun.com, that republication hardly constitutes fair use.”  This statement is false because the Peter Snell Interview isn’t being reproduced by letsrun.com at all. We are simply linking to the Interview on Runnersworld.com’s website (http://www.runnersworld.com/home/0,1300,1-0-0-1963-1-0-P,00.html). It is not being reproduced on LetsRun.com as the above hyperlink attests.

Therefore your assertions that “clicking on the hyperlink fails to take viewers directly to Rodale's runnersworld.com website” and “Letsrun.com has not created a hyperlink to Rodale's runnersworld.com website” are false.  Clicking on the hyperlink does take one to the runnersworld.com web-site – it specifically takes them to the Peter Snell Interview on Runnersworld.com. More specifically, it takes them to the “Printer Friendly” version of the Peter Snell Interview.

 

Additionally, you also stated that the Peter Snell Interview we linked to “was stripped of all Rodale ads and navigational information and aids.”  If it was stripped of any ads or navigational information, it was stripped of them by Runnersworld.com not LetsRun.com.  Runnersworld.com decided that the “Printer Friendly” version of the Interview wouldn’t contain any ads. LetsRun.com didn’t make this decision.

 

You also even go as far as to say that our “use of the Rodale trademark runnersworld.com by letsrun.com is also infringing.” That’s utterly false.  We specifically used the trademark “runnersworld.com” so that no one would think the article came from us. Our use of the term “runnersworld.com” is the complete opposite of copyright infringement.  We are purposely using the trademark to show that the article was not written by us and is runnerworld.com’s work. We could remove the term runnersworld.com, but then you would probably be on our case for trying to pass the article off as our own.

 

We find it extremely ironic that you claim that our linking directly to an article or interview on another website, in this case runnersworld.com, is a violation of US Copyright law.  Runnersworld.com does exactly this on a daily basis (this practice is often referred to as “deep linking”).  As of 6:16 p.m. Eastern Standard Time on Monday, May 13th, 2002, the runnersworld.com daily news page (http://www.runnersworld.com/home/0,1300,1-0-0-ZNEWS,00.html) contains an entire section of “deep links” to other running stories.  The section entitled “Splits” currently links directly to 80 other articles (by our count, we may be off by one or two since there are so many) on other sites.  The links do not go to the front page. Moreover, after the links to these articles, runnerworld.com lists the trademarked name that is the source of each particular article (such as “Denver Post” and “Salt Lake Tribune”) in exactly the same fashion that we listed “runnersworld.com”.  Yet you claim that our use of the trademarked term “runnersworld.com” is a second violation.


Additionally, it has come to our attention that Runnersworld.com has at least on one occasion “deep linked” to a page on LetsRun.com in exactly the same fashion that we have “deep linked” to the Peter Snell Interview. On
August 2, 2001, our world championship prediction contest was featured as the “Daily Bookmark” on Runnersworld.com. The link on runnersworld.com took visitors directly to a specific page on our website, and a page that contained no advertising.  Yet this is exactly the same type of behavior when done by us is a supposed violation of copyright and trademark law (See Attachment 2 and http://www.runnersworld.com/dailynew/archives/2001/August/010802.html for evidence).


As Runnersworld.com recognizes, linking directly to another web-site’s article or interview is not a violation of copyright law. It’s unfortunate that you, their lawyer, do not recognize this fact.  The case: Ticketmaster Corp., et al. v. Tickets.Com, Inc. (U.S. District Court, Central District of Californiam, March 27, 2000) established as legal precedent that hyperlinking is not a copyright violation. The ruling in that case stated and I quote (from: http://www.gigalaw.com/library/ticketmaster-tickets-2000-03-27.html):

 

“Further, hyperlinking does not itself involve a violation of the Copyright Act (whatever it may do for other claims) since no copying is involved. The customer is automatically transferred to the particular genuine web page of the original author. There is no deception in what is happening. This is analogous to using a library's card index to get reference to particular items, albeit faster and more efficiently.”


We clearly are not violating US copyright law.  As a result, we don’t understand why we keep receiving letters from you threatening a lawsuit.  Perhaps, Runnerworld.com, with its superior financial resources is trying to unfairly intimidate an upstart competitor, who without any advertising is taking some of runnersworld.com’s marketshare.  You say that our actions constitute “unfair competition” which can’t be true as we don’t do anything that Runnersworld.com does not do itself.  The “unfair competition” is coming from Runnersworld.com threatening to sue us. 

 

If you truly are interested in protecting the copyright of runnersworld.com (which you should be) then we urge you to visit the following web-site:  www.mariusbakken.com. If you visit the site, you will see that this particular website reproduces copyright material in its entirety throughout its site.  In fact, the Peter Snell Interview is reproduced in its entirety on that site currently (see http://www.mariusbakken.com/cgi-bin/news/viewnews.cgi?newsid1021086912,59276). We know copyright infringement when we see it and hope your financial resources can put a stop to it when it legitimately occurs. 

 

We wish you luck in pursuing the above mentioned instance of copyright infringement but hope that you will stop harassing us as we are law abiding entrepreneurs. (We’re not sure why Runnersworld.com hasn’t notified you of the copyright infringement on  mariusbakken.com as they have featured it as their link of the day in the past and must be aware of the blatant copyright violations. Our only guess is they must not view www.mariusbakken.com as a threatening competitor and thus they don’t care. Perhaps, Runnersworld.com and Rodale, Inc only care to use their vast resources to squash upstart competitors.)

 

In conclusion, we are pretty much mystified as why we keep getting threatening letters from you on behalf of Runnersworld.com as we have never done anything that they themselves do not do.  Perhaps you are unfamiliar with the world-wide web where deep linking is done by thousands if not millions each and every day.  We will not stop deep linking to articles or interviews to runnersworld.com or any other site per your request.  Deep linking is clearly is protected “fair use” of copyrighted material as established by legal precedent and we are not willing to forsake this first amendment right.

 

In the last month, The Dallas Morning News has threatened to sue a site, barkingdogs.org, for deep linking to its articles. The threat has received much attention in the press because it, much like your own threat of a lawsuit, goes against the very nature of the world wide web.  The web is a world wide web of links, not a world wide straight line to a homepage, and legal precedent and Runnersworld.com’s own website support deep linking. 

 

Public Citizen, the Ralph Nader, public advocacy group has agreed to provide pro-bono the legal services for Barkingdogs.org should The Dallas Morning News actually file a lawsuit.  But no one actually anticipates a lawsuit, since the DallasNews.com (The Dallas Morning News’ web-site) is apparently just trying to intimidate another website. The threat by The Dallas Morning News has garnered coverage in the NYTimes (http://www.nytimes.com/2002/05/06/technology/06WEB.html), AbcNews.com (http://abcnews.go.com/sections/business/DailyNews/links020513.html), Wired.com (http://www.wired.com/news/politics/0,1283,52213-1-13,00.html), and Dotcomscoop.com (http://www.dotcomscoop.com/050202.html#belo) among others.

 

(Maybe you shouldn’t read those links because if we understand your argument correctly, we are violating copyright by providing the above links above to you.) 

 

We urge you to read the letters from Public Citizen to the Dallas Morning News’ lawyers: http://www.barkingdogs.org/News_Features/May2002/05092002_citizen/05092002_citizen.shtml explaining the legal precedent on Barkingdogs.org side.

 

If you do not agree with this letter, then we urge someone from Runnersworld.com to call us as it’s much easier (and less expensive) to solve things without involving lawyers.  Tell Amby Burfoot to call us as we’ve gotten along with him great in the past. Our phone # is 928-***-****.  If not, we’re looking forward to getting Public Citizen behind our cause.

 

Sincerely yours,

 

Robert and Weldon Johnosn
