No attempt has been made to defame or assassinate the character of Theresa Caputo. No attempt has been made to disparage or defame the TLC television network.

We are simply disputing that Ms. Caputo has supernatural, unproven powers to speak to dead people.

Calling a psychic "fake" is rather redundant and does not constitute any sort of actionable legal basis on the grounds of defamation, slander or libel. Any attempt to file suit or attempt to remove this site will be met with the force of our legal team. We will not be threatened. We will not back down to pressure. We will not allow our free speech to be impeded in any way because someone, somewhere decides they don't "like" what we have to say.
We are also unequivocally NOT SELLING ANYTHING. We have nothing to sell. We are not hawking a product. We are not a "scam", as some of Caputo's defenders have claimed.

Disclaimer of property interest; requirements; effect


A. If by any means an interest in property or with respect to property devolves to a person, that person or that person’s representative may disclaim that interest in whole or in part by delivering or filing a written disclaimer under this section. This right exists notwithstanding any limitation on the interest of the disclaimant in the nature of a spendthrift provision or similar restriction or any restriction or limitation on the right to disclaim contained in the governing instrument. For purposes of this subsection, “representative” includes a personal representative of a decedent, a conservator of a protected person, a guardian of a minor or incapacitated person and an agent acting on behalf of the person within the authority of a power of attorney.


B. If the property or interest has devolved to the disclaimant under a testamentary instrument or by the laws of intestacy and is of a present interest, the disclaimer must be filed not later than nine months after the death of the deceased owner or deceased donee of a power of appointment. If that property or interest is of a future interest, the disclaimer must be filed not later than nine months after the event that determines that the taker of the property or interest is finally ascertained and the interest is indefeasibly vested. The disclaimer must be filed in the court in the county in which proceedings for the administration of the estate of the deceased owner or deceased donee of the power have been commenced. A copy of the disclaimer must be delivered in person or mailed by certified mail, return receipt requested, to any personal representative or other fiduciary of the decedent or donee of the power.


C. If a property or interest has devolved to the disclaimant under a nontestamentary instrument or contract and is of a present interest the disclaimer shall be filed not later than nine months after the effective date of the nontestamentary instrument or contract. If the property or interest is of a future interest the disclaimer must be filed not later than nine months after the event that determines that the taker of the property or interest is finally ascertained and the taker’s interest is indefeasibly vested. If the person entitled to disclaim does not know of the existence of the interest, the disclaimer must be delivered or filed not later than nine months after the person learns of the existence of the interest. The effective date of a revocable instrument or contract is the date on which the maker no longer has power to revoke it or to transfer to the maker or another the entire legal and equitable ownership of the interest. The disclaimer or a copy of the disclaimer must be delivered in person or mailed by certified mail, return receipt requested, to the person who has legal title to or possession of the interest disclaimed.


D. A surviving joint tenant may disclaim as a separate interest any property or an interest in that property that devolves to that joint tenant by right of survivorship. A surviving joint tenant may disclaim the entire interest in any property or an interest in that property that is the subject of a joint tenancy devolving to that joint tenant, if the joint tenancy was created by act of a deceased joint tenant, the survivor did not join in creating the joint tenancy and the survivor has not accepted a benefit under it.


E. If real property or an interest in that property is disclaimed, a copy of the disclaimer may be recorded in the office of the county recorder of the county in which the property or interest disclaimed is located.


F. The disclaimer shall describe the property or interest disclaimed, declare the disclaimer and its extent and be signed by the disclaimant.


G. If property or an interest in that property devolves to a disclaimant under a testamentary instrument, under a power of appointment exercised by a testamentary instrument or under the laws of intestacy and the decedent has not provided for another disposition of that interest, should it be disclaimed, or of disclaimed or failed interests in general, the disclaimed interest devolves as if the disclaimant had predeceased the decedent. However, if by law or under the testamentary instrument the descendants of the disclaimant would share in the disclaimed interest by representation or otherwise if the disclaimant were to predecease the decedent, the disclaimed interest then passes by representation or as directed by the governing instrument to the descendants of the disclaimant who survive the decedent. A future interest that takes effect in possession or enjoyment after the termination of the estate or interest disclaimed takes effect as if the disclaimant had predeceased the decedent. A disclaimer relates back for all purposes to the date of death of the decedent.


H. If property or an interest in property devolves to a disclaimant under a nontestamentary instrument or contract and the instrument or contract does not provide for another disposition of that interest, should it be disclaimed, or of disclaimed or failed interests in general, the disclaimed interest devolves as if the disclaimant had predeceased the effective date of the instrument or contract. However, if by law or under the nontestamentary instrument or contract the descendants of the disclaimant would share in the disclaimed interest by representation or otherwise if the disclaimant were to predecease the effective date of the instrument, the disclaimed interest then passes by representation or as directed by the governing instrument to the descendants of the disclaimant who survive the effective date of the instrument. A disclaimer relates back for all purposes to that date. A future interest that takes effect in possession or enjoyment at or after the termination of the disclaimed interest takes effect as if the disclaimant had died before the effective date of the instrument or contract that transferred the disclaimed interest.


I. The disclaimer or the written waiver of the right to disclaim is binding on the disclaimant or the person who makes the waiver and on all persons claiming through or under either of them.


J. The right to disclaim property or an interest in property is barred by:

1. An assignment, conveyance, encumbrance, pledge or transfer of the property or interest or a contract.
2. A written waiver of the right to disclaim.
3. An acceptance of the property or interest or a benefit under it.
4. A sale of the property or interest under judicial sale made before the disclaimer is made.

K. This section does not limit a person’s right to waive, release, disclaim or renounce property or an interest in that property under any other statute.

L. An interest in property that exists on December 31, 1994 as to which, if a present interest, the time for filing a disclaimer under this section has not expired or, if a future interest, the interest has not become indefeasibly vested or the taker finally ascertained may be disclaimed within nine months after December 31, 1994.

M. For the purposes of this section:

1. Acceptance of an interest is not acceptance of any separate interest given under the same instrument.
2. Interest for life or for any other period of time is a single interest that is separate from any interest in the principal or any additional interest in income that takes effect on the occurrence of a future event.
3. An interest in periodic payments to be made from principal or income, or both, for the life of the beneficiary or for any other period of time is a single interest that is separate from any additional payments to be made on the occurrence of a future event.

RE: Copyright Reminder
 
October 30, 1998
 
This memorandum provides a general description of the applicability of the copyright law and the so-called "fair use" exemptions to the copyright law's general prohibition on copying. It also describes "safe harbor" guidelines applicable to classroom copying.
 
The federal copyright statute governs the reproduction of works of authorship. In general, works governed by copyright law include such traditional works of authorship as books, photographs, music, drama, video and sculpture, and also software, multimedia, and databases. Copyrighted works are protected regardless of the medium in which they are created or reproduced; thus, copyright extends to digital works and works transformed into a digital format. Copyrighted works are not limited to those that bear a copyright notice. As a result of changes in copyright law, works published since March 1, 1989 need not bear a copyright notice to be protected under the statute.
 
Two provisions of the copyright statute are of particular importance to teachers and researchers:
 
* a provision that codifies the doctrine of "fair use," under which limited copying of copyrighted works without the permission of the owner is allowed for certain teaching and research purposes; and
 
* a provision that establishes special limitations and exemptions for the reproduction of copyrighted works by libraries and archives.
 
The concept of fair use is necessarily somewhat vague when discussed in the abstract. Its application depends critically on the particular facts of the individual situation. Neither the case law nor the statutory law provides bright lines concerning which uses are fair and which are not. However, you may find it helpful to refer to certain third party source materials. Guidelines for classroom copying by not-for-profit educational institutions have been prepared by a group consisting of the Authors League of America, the Association of American Publishers, and an ad hoc committee of educational institutions and organizations. In addition, fair use guidelines for educational multimedia have been prepared by a group coordinated by the consortium of College and University Multimedia Centers (CCUMC). These guidelines describe safe harbor conditions, but do not purport to define the full extent of "fair use."
 
The guidelines, as well as other source material, are available through a variety of resources, including through the world wide web site http://fairuse.stanford.edu. Stanford University Libraries & Academic Information Resources, in collaboration with the Council on Library Resources and FindLaw Internet Legal Resources, are sponsors of this web site. The site assembles a wide range of materials related to the use of copyrighted material by individuals, libraries, and educational institutions.
 
I hope that the discussion below helps to clarify further the nature of "fair use."
 
I. Fair Use for Teaching and Research
 
The "fair use" doctrine allows limited reproduction of copyrighted works for educational and research purposes. The relevant portion of the copyright statue provides that the "fair use" of a copyrighted work, including reproduction "for purposes such as criticism, news reporting, teaching (including multiple copies for classroom use), scholarship, or research" is not an infringement of copyright. The law lists the following factors as the ones to be evaluated in determining whether a particular use of a copyrighted work is a permitted "fair use," rather than an infringement of the copyright:
 
* the purpose and character of the use, including whether such use is of a commercial nature or is for nonprofit educational purposes;
 
* the nature of the copyrighted work;
 
* the amount and substantiality of the portion used in relation to the copyrighted work as a whole, and
 
* the effect of the use upon the potential market for or value of the copyrighted work.
 
Although all of these factors will be considered, the last factor is the most important in determining whether a particular use is "fair." Where a work is available for purchase or license from the copyright owner in the medium or format desired, copying of all or a significant portion of the work in lieu of purchasing or licensing a sufficient number of "authorized" copies would be presumptively unfair. Where only a small portion of a work is to be copied and the work would not be used if purchase or licensing of a sufficient number of authorized copies were required, the intended use is more likely to be found to be fair.
 
A federal appeals court recently decided an important copyright fair use case involving coursepacks. In Princeton University Press, et.al. v. Michigan Document Services, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit concluded that the copying of excerpts from books and other publications by a commercial copy service without the payment of fees to the copyright holders to create coursepacks for university students was not fair use. The size of the offending excerpts varied from 30 percent to as little as 5 percent of the original publications. Although the opinion in this case is not binding in California, it is consistent with prior cases from other courts, and there is a reasonable likelihood that the California federal courts would reach a similar conclusion on similar facts.
 
Where questions arise, we suggest that you consult the guidelines for classroom copying and other available source material available on the fair use web site, cited above. Please note that the guidelines are intended to state the minimum, not the maximum, extent of the fair use doctrine. Thus, just because your use is not within the guidelines, it is it not necessarily outside the scope of fair use. In the absence of a definitive conclusion, however, if the proposed use deviates from the guidelines, you should consider obtaining permission to use the work from the copyright owner. In instances where the fair use question is important and permission would be difficult or expensive to obtain, a member of the Fair Use Advisory Group (described below) or the Legal Office can assist in analyzing whether a particular proposed use would constitute "fair use."
 
Some photocopying services will obtain copyright permission and add the price of the royalties, if any, to the price of the materials. A request to copy a copyrighted work should generally be sent to the permission department of the publisher of the work. Permission requests should contain the following:
 
* Title, author, and/or editor, and edition
 
* Exact material to be used, giving page numbers or chapters
 
* Number of copies to be made
 
* Use to be made of the copied materials
 
* Form of distribution (classroom, newsletter, etc.)
 
* Whether the material is to be sold
 
Draft form letters can be obtained from or reviewed by a member of the Fair Use Advisory Group or the Legal Office.
 
For certain works, permission may also be sought from the Copyright Clearance Center (CCC) which will quote a charge for works for which they are able to give permission. The Copyright Clearance Center can be contacted at www.copyright.com or (978) 750-8400, but it may be easier to go through a copying service that deals regularly with the CCC.
 
II. Course Reserves
 
Some libraries at Stanford will refuse to accept multiple photocopies or to make photocopies of copyrighted materials needed for course reserves without first having permission from the copyright holder. Other libraries on campus will accept a limited number of photocopies for course reserves. Consult individual libraries for clarification of their policies.
 
While the libraries have blanket permission from dozens of journals, obtaining permission sometimes takes a good deal of time. Experience in obtaining permission has shown that an inquiry addressed to a journal publisher frequently produces information that the copyright is actually held by the author, and four weeks is often inadequate to obtain such permission. Four to six weeks is considered the norm.
 
Permission may be obtained in a number of ways:
 
* Upon request, some libraries on campus will obtain materials for course reserve. In these cases, the librarian will write to obtain permission to photocopy or to purchase reprints. However, most libraries do not provide this service.
 
* Written permission may be obtained by the academic department.
 
* Oral permission may be obtained by faculty members, departmental secretaries, or library staff, in which case a written record is needed of that action.
 
Note that filling course reserve requirements may require two to three months before the quarter begins if the library does not already have a copy of the publication, if the publication is out of print, or if the copyright holder is not readily available.
 
III. Resources
 
Additional information on copyright issues may be found on the world wide web site http://fairuse.stanford.edu.
 
Questions about the copyright law as it affects faculty and staff in their University capacities should be directed to a member of the Fair Use Advisory Group (see attachment) or to Linda Woodward in the Legal Office (3-9751), who can put you in touch with the appropriate lawyer to respond to your specific question. Questions about library policy and course reserves should be addressed to Assunta Pisani, Associate Director, University Libraries (apisani@sulmail or 3-5553). Information concerning the application of copyright law to computer software can be found in the memorandum "Copying of Computer Software" distributed by the Library and Information Resources and in Administrative Guide Memorandum 62.
 
Thank you for your cooperation in ensuring the observation of these guidelines.
