SCARY COPYRIGHT NOTICE

The current issue of New Scientist reproduces a warning found on a website offering graphics and photos. At the foot of the usual legal boilerplate, the rubric runs: "My intellectual property attorney is a scary-smart guy. He was the youngest person to ever pass the bar exam in his state. Plus he put himself through law school by working as a professional wrestler. I am not making this up".

The IPKat would like to hear from anyone who has come across any interesting or original threats in copyright notices. Just post your comment below or email it to The IPKat.
