We received a DMCA takedown request last week which was submitted by someone claiming to be Paul Ponting. A DMCA takedown request is:
A DMCA Takedown is: When content is removed from a website at the request of the owner of the content or the owner of the copyright of the content. It is a well established, accepted, internet standard followed by website owners and internet service providers.
The request was for this website to remove an image of Paul Ponting and the claim was it was from his Facebook account. The image in question was this one:
This image of Mr Paul Ponting can be found freely online, it is the same image Paul Ponting posed for with numerous online media publications including the Liverpool Echo, The Daily Mail and the Southport Visitor. Mr Ponting also has many other images online from newspapers that he has openly posed for, including this one with The Champion, this one also with The Champion, this one with Q-Local.
Mr Ponting is no stranger to the limelight and seems to enjoy contacting the papers each time he needs to further his agenda. It is Mr Ponting who has plastered his face all over the internet and local media not us.
Thankfully Mr Pontings appeal to have his images removed from this blog were denied but we just wanted to let people know anything we share here is public knowledge including all the public information on the websites Paul Ponting maintains about his victims.
Mr Ponting seems to enjoy posting images of others on his hate filled websites yet he does not like his own image posted on websites that don’t suit his agenda.
