Getting Rich…Henry

Get Frank and Rich Henry have a revolt on their hands. The Bloggers Union is mobilising.

Cactus Kate responds.

Kiwiblog pulls his content.

Homepaddock shares her story of another content thief.

QuoteUnquote puts the shiv in;

For two or three years now he has been using some NZ bloggers’ material, with their permission, on the understanding that when the site started making money from advertising he would split the income 50-50 with said bloggers on a page-view basis. Sadly, he was as trustworthy as a Nigerian widow who would like to give you $US5 million in exchange for your bank account details.

Wonderful Now gives Rich Henry a kicking.

un-PC Lesbian is likewise bemused.

Enforcement Officers spent last night going through the content of Get Frank, so unfortunately he will get a slight spike in traffic. They have identified more than 200 content providers, including Getty Images and professional photographers who have images protected under full copyright on Flickr. All content providers plus advertisers identified so far have been sent the following email.

Dear Content Provider to Get Frank website

On behalf of the NZ Bloggers Union we wish to draw your attention to the following investigation regarding the online mens magazine “Get Frank” of which the site represents you are a contributor to:

http://whaleoil.gotcha.co.nz/2010/11/30/getting-frank-with-rich/

Rich Henry is making profits from your work. He has previously either plead poverty that he cannot pay for the content or made representations about paying for the content when and if the site becomes profitable.

As outlined he appeared on TV’s The Apprentice based on the premise he was a young entrepreneur running a successful business. He may very well be but he’s stealing to do so.

Please email Rich at [email protected] and demand payment for your past and future work, or instruct him to immediately remove all your content.

If you are an advertiser please consider that you are paying Rich to steal off the work of others and act begin to act ethically or else face a blogger boycott and social media anti-branding campaign of your product or service.

Regards

NZ Bloggers Union

Rich Henry was described, by someone who would know, as duplicitous and fired from The Apprentice. Now he is being fired by his content providers and advertisers.

Never Fuck with a Blogger (NFWAB) especially if that blogger is me. For Rich Henry this is only going to get worse before it even starts to look like it will get better.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story.  And when he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet.   Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet, and as a result he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist that takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him.  But you can’t ignore him.
