ANALYZING THE FAKE DMCA
In this case, the fake DMCA was filed claiming that the original article was published on fox18news.com , and copied without consent on a blogspot page. Sounds believable.
However, fox18news.com has nothing to do with Fox News. It’s just a misleading name, a cheap imitation, impersonation. This fake news website was set up exactly for this purpose, and has been caught red handed on many other fake DMCA scams as seen at – https://webactivism.com/tag/fox18news-com/ . We suspect it’s the handiwork of the same reputation management service which had these other esteemed (hardly) clients –
After our investigations, these perpetrators took down the website altogether. You can however marvel at their commitment and passion for their work. This is what they wrote in the DMCA notice –
All the content on the article from top to bottom is copied . This such an hideous act is done to harm our news channel . Fox News have been serving news from more than 2 decades now and such an Hideous act attempted by this blogger . Team google have all the rights to take action on this . This article is degrading our original news value . Please look into this matter . I have used my official email address and you can see that it was written by me ( jennifer clandon ) .
SO WHAT WERE THEY TRYING TO HIDE ?
Nemat Sadat, the blogger, is Afghanistan’s first openly gay person currently living in NewYork and has a great following online for his views and opinions. In 2014, he published an article on Dr. Rod Monger which showed him in bad light. Here are some excerpts from the article –
A good example of Afghan foolishness occurred last month when Rod Monger, a professor of business at the American University of Afghanistan (AUAF) took the “Shahada” (testifying to the oneness of God and acceptance of Muhammad as Allah’s prophet) and converted to Islam. Many Afghans cheered in thunderous applause as if Afghanistan had gained something monumental. But beneath the veneer of conquest, it was just another act of manipulation in the nefarious Islamic playbook that has kept my homeland under siege since the seventh century invasion of a horrid religion.
Dr. Rod Monger clearly wanted this article gone.
EDITOR’S COMMENT : For those who might ask – ‘why and how do we interject that ‘Dr. Rod Monger’ has something to do with this fake DMCA. Couldn’t it be a coincidence ?’, we will say this – When someone goes and creates a whole new fake news site, falsifies his/her identity and submits fake DMCA to try and de-list some very targeted content on Google, it signals intent and a plan. It is obvious that ‘Dr. Rod Monger’ or someone that was hired was directly involved in this crime. Dr. Rod Monger also cannot plead ignorance in this matter, since this notice on Google search is hard to miss, really.
