In late 2013, Dutchman Wim Dankbaar illegally acquired the diary of a 16 year old murder victim’s mother. The diary contained the mother’s deepest feelings during her grieving process. And, without any thought to the harm he would be doing, Wim Dankbaar re-published it on the internet for the world to see, claiming it was all part of his “investigating” the girl’s murder, even though he was not authorized in any legal capacity to do so.
A legal complaint was filed by the mother and the judge ruled that her diary is a copyrighted work and Dankbaar was ordered to remove from the internet all defamatory statements he made in the process along with any publicly broadcast pages of the diary. He was also ordered to pay a hefty fine for each day it remained on the internet. The mother’s lawyer said publications “by these conspiracy theorists who just want to profit from the work” are particularly painful for her’.
Wim Dankbaar is, of course, the Dutch blogger who continues to sell known fraudulent materials related to the JFK assassination on his JFK murder website claiming that jailed inmate James Files is the sole assassin of President Kennedy.
