The Publishers would have had the right to complain.


Was it the publisher though - did they get C R.

 I I R C seems it was a mistake on there side, this site use to support them

I remember it being discussed on another forum.

The general take on it was they bit a hand that feeds them.

It would appear that the search for Maddie comes a poor second to copyright law.

Only the mccanns can make money on madde

IMO that's the mccanns for you.

Oh! I don't know about that.
Amaral must have earned a few bob with his book and documentaries and TV appearances.

Is it in a fund for Madeleine?

I don't know.  But I doubt that it was The McCanns personally.

It is perfectly understandable to me that The Publishers would have used Carter Ruck to issue a Copyright Warning.

Of course.  We all know this.  But The Publishers have their own rights to protect.  Why not Carter Ruck since they know the case inside out.

This seems to afford you some glee.  Fine, I don't have a problem with that.

I have never read either Kate's book or that of Goncalo Amaral.  I have never needed to.  All of the apparently interesting stuff is on this Forum anyway.  Picked over and shredded interminably.

Thank God we had something to talk about is all I can say.

Did he say it would be ?
Moral Guilt
Detractors of the work of our British Police in bringing criminals to justice generally ignore the important distinction between moral proof and legal evidence of guilt. In not a few cases that are popularly classed with 'unsolved mysteries of crime,' the offender is known, but evidence is wanting. If, for example, in- a recent murder case of special notoriety and interest,* certain human remains had not been found in a cellar, a great crime would have been catalogued among `Police failures'; and yet, even without the evidence which sent the murderer to the gallows, the moral proof of his guilt would have been full and clear.

Indeed.
All quite clear now.
The money donated by folk here to Amarals fighting fund is staying with whoever has it now.
The money earned by Amaral with his book about Madeleine's disappearance, his TV appearances about Madeleine's disappearance and his documentary about Madeleine's disappearance is his.
All very clear.

It always has been clear, what was the confusion? the fighting fund money will not touch Amarals pockets, it is in a 'fund' ie account. to be used for legal fees and anything left over will be given to charity.

Amaral has a family to support as well as himself - he was left penniless almost because of the McCanns actions.

And let us remind ourselves of his crime to be h  ated so much by so few... He wrote about the thesis of an investigation of which he was a part of. HE didn't kill babies or torture kittens let us be clear about that and keep things in perspective.

... and why is it relevant to Kate’s Book?
It is a lack of contrition that makes a person who has done wrong fixate on being proven blameless.

The inference is that poor suffering Kate McCann wrote her book purely to raise funds to continue the search for her missing daughter. Despite her natural reserve and desire for privacy she shared details about her life for Madeleine's sake, not for any other reason.

The Fund needed the money and Kate donated every penny the book earned, we are told. We don't know how much she earned, of course, or how much of it was donated. Those details haven't been shared. We also don't know why she felt the need to place a restriction on the use of the money. Although she's a director of the Fund she seems to have felt the need to restrict the use to which the book earnings were/are put. Does she not trust her fellow directors to spend the money wisely?

On the other hand, of course, nasty vindictive Amaral wrote a book and kept the money for himself, just as many others did. The difference was that he wrote about the investigation into Madeleine's disappearance rather than writing a book defending her parents.
