I record calls, you should too!

Important to record calls for record-keeping purposesABSOLUTELY!  I record calls – and have for many, many years.

Years ago, I used to record calls using a cassette recorder with a tape deck and wires hanging out of my ear to the phone and back to the recorder.  This was done for personal and private reasons and for record-keeping purposes.  I do not record calls so I can sit back and listen to them and giggle or anything, who has time for that?  No, its for a much more important reason.  The same reason that you carry car insurance, home-owners insurance or wear hiking boots when hiking.  Safety!

Why record calls, you might ask?  There are a great deal of dumb people out there who say this or that.  Over the years, I have had people post this or that about me saying I said this or that.  One guy in particular, a Dr. Ken Wenzer who has a PHD, (pretty smart right?) posted things that I supposedly “said” to him, promises I made.  They were a complete and total fabrication and misalignment of the facts.   And he convinced others to say the same thing, in a collusion of sorts – getting others to lie to authorities and in online forums.   And fortunately, I have always maintained and archived all of my voice proofs.  Its clear what was said and using a time-date-stamped audio tape has always help me prove EXACTLY what was and was not said.

If you want to be 100% sure that you follow through on the specifics you promise someone or are going to work into a written agreement, you want to be sure you have that outlined as well.  Its important to know what was said, how it was said and to hear voice inflections and more!   It is easiest to speak the truth in your conversation, that way, it requires little review to see “what was said”.   I find myself occasionally referencing a conversation to log notes important to the individuals contact history, or if I promised to send them a link to this or that.

Call recording is key to keep your ass safeIt doesn’t matter if its a legal situation, a customer situation you need to review or an employee/subcontractor issue, you MUST record calls – all of them.  The one time that it becomes absolutely necessary to have the recording, a get out of jail card if you will – you will regret not having a conversation.

 

INCOMING and OUTGOING!  Check with your State laws but in the author’s humble opinion, it should be legal to record your own conversations for record-keeping purposes, period. 

As a reporter on life around us and a free speech advocate, I am wired most of the time and record conversations of important meetings for record-keeping purposes.  This also serves to later impeach testimony if someone outright lies.  There is no greater defense than a consistent and persistent offense.

But why doesn’t everyone do it, you might ask?  They do.  Big companies like Verizon and AT&T are rumored to use a program referred to as the “Witness“.  It records all calls, crunches software to determine if people are mad,  satisfied or talking too long.  They use software to analyze employee conversations without actually “listening” to the call, legally circumventing the wiretap laws.

To pad that circumvention, they play a little jingle that says something to the effect, “your call may be monitored or recorded for quality assurance”, like they are doing us a favor – to provide a better service.   Well sort of.  The big companies understand that recording a call is a vital piece to the business model, including security and protection.

Check the law and get familiar with the restrictions regarding your ability to record calls.  Buy a digital recorder and record calls and protect your ass.  If there are Doctors with PhD’s that are stupid enough to lie about things, you can be certain there are just general, plain non-degreed folks that will do the same thing!

Bad Attorney – the larve on a steaming pile of dung

Bad attorneys, bad lawyer

Bad Attorney – leaving their stench on the landscape.

The U.S. Supreme Court is the highest court in the United States of America. Here is what Chief Justice Warren Burger had to say about bad attorneys:

“75 to 90 percent of American Trial Lawyers are incompetent, dishonest or both”

Bad Attorney, bad lawyer
Bad Attorneys!

 

How is that possible?  Wait, I guess I should say, we know its possible, but how does that continue to be a possibility.  Are they breeding with other bad attorneys?  Do they put their penises into each other like they do their clients so that they spread the idiocracy?

I watch bad attorney after bad attorney post in the Craigslist legal forums, spamming ad after spamming ad.  They are trying to solicit business as counselors of law when Craigslist’s policy is clearly ONE listing in a single category in one 48 hour period.  I get it and I am an uneducated non-lawyer spokesman.  I feel for the simple who hire those morons, truly fitting into Chief Justice’s percentile.

I think its funny…sort of.  When it comes to legal issues having a bad attorney is NOT a laughing matter.  I mean it could be the difference between going to jail and living the rest of your life free with family and loved ones.  It is just funny that it can be so rampant, so readily available and out there and continuing on even as you read this!

People out there, you have been warned by the former Chief Justice of the highest court in this land.  More than likely this man knew what he was talking about and it was not an off the cuff comment.   I mean its probably pretty hard to get a position on the Supreme Court bench, much less become the “Chief Justice”.

Stay attentive to which bad attorney you hire if you have a legal issue, it certainly will matter….and for God’s sake, flag the morons on Craigslist before they hurt themselves, or someone else, lol.

ATTENTION: Webhosts and ISP’s: What DMCA attorneys don’t want you to know!

When we filed the Federal lawsuit against the big pattern companies and Digital River, we learned some of the tactics of attorneys that spouted Digital Millennium Copyright Act claims, how they twist the letter of the law to their favor.DMCAhaha

One of the little known ways is going to be disclosed here.

The Federal government established a program for WebHosts  to register their designated Copyright Agent with the US Copyright office, per law.  Many do not know about this and therefore, many do not register.  The first thing a lawyer attempts to do when filing a DMCA complaint/lawsuit is to find leverage against the ISP hosting the website.  If it refuses to take down an alleged offending website and it has not registered as its designated copyright agent, they use this as leverage against them.  A sort of, do things my way or you will face charges for this approach…

Now in most communities in the world, using this leverage against someone is considered extortion, blackmail or other interesting terms.  In law, it’s research and helping enforce the laws on the books.

Anyway, the registration process to avoid this type of DMCA takedown complication is fairly simply.  Download the PDF Form and fill it out.  There is a fee to register your webhost/ISP, and it has been steadily increasing in cost each year so I anticipate that the fee will continue to rise.  Registering now won’t protect you from a lawsuit or claim, but it will take one leg out of a lawyer’s claims against you.  The less legs they have to stand on, the less briefs you will have to file.

If I can dig up the letter from the opposing attorney about this matter, I will post it here later.  That way you can clearly see the approach of attorneys with this agenda in mind.

Some of you may not want to register your host – while it currently isn’t an enforced offense, the penalties are not clear, it just gives an opposing counsel a stronger case.  And, they can use this information to go upline to your IP provider and more than likely, kill you IPs…
