Douglas K. Handshoe . . . Copyright Troll

Douglas Handshoe Copyright Troll
It is amazing what one finds searching the Chilling Effects Clearinghouse. Douglas Handshoe, CPA and homophobic blogger, who has hurled allegations of copyright trolling at others across the Internet for years, has himself issued a copyright takedown notice to Google concerning this very blog.


Take a look

The DMCA Take Down Notice concerns the photo seen here to the left. Unfortunately for Doug, he does not own the copyright to that photograph, which reporter Val Bracey published on under a Public Domain Creative Commons license. See

In yet Mr. Handshoe swears under penalty of perjury that this photograph is his. Isn't that a crime? You decide.

What is the matter Mr. Doug? Don't like seeing your picture on a blog like this?
