Remember Peter Deuel
A SPECIAL NOTE FROM PETER’S BROTHER
This is Geoffrey Deuel.
It has been brought to my attention that the videoclip from the documentary “Remembering Pete Duel (December 31, 2013) with Geoffrey Deuel” (as seen below) that Laura Moretti and I are in the process of producing has been copied, posted, video-capped, and/or embedded on websites that claim they are fans of my brother, Peter Deuel.
This documentary and, therefore, the videoclip itself, are copyrighted to me alone and, unless permission is granted by me, no one, and I mean no one, has the right to use it in any manner whatsoever for any reason they see fit otherwise.
In the past, the same people who are currently posting the video or video captures they made on their sites, and who shall remain anonymous (at least for now), have claimed that their websites are devoted to honoring my brother and his memory. As far as I am concerned, given this violation of copyright, they show no honor whatsoever. All they show is a great lack of respect for me and, therefore, for Peter’s memory.
The reason I allowed this videoclip to be posted online, including on Youtube, was for fans to enjoy a sneak preview of our upcoming documentary. I now regret that decision. I believe Peter would be extremely disappointed in the actions of those who would willfully violate my copyright and by how they have treated his memory.
Because of their actions, I have ordered the videoclip to be removed from Youtube. It can only be seen here on The Pete Duel Memorial Site (www.peteduel.info). If further violations occur by others from this site, I will have no recourse but to remove it from here, as well.
I have been reluctant over the years to publicize my exclusive photographs and memories, as well as my feelings and thoughts, for this very reason, so unless the video embed and video captures/screenshots are removed from all sites except this one, I will have to reconsider my involvement in the documentary. I may also seek legal action against violators.
I urge the true fans of my brother, Peter, and myself, to admonish these people.
A heartfelt “thank you” to the true and respectful fans of Peter Deuel.
