The gofund me page was already almost taken down for legal reasons. It is well documented in the gfm page as well. Just plain facts that makes you wonder about the Motivation of this book. The genuine question is: Why release a book with PRIVATE pictures that never should be made public. The fact that Freddie showed those pix to friends doesnt mean that he wants the whole world to see it. Big difference.
I also said it us completely shameful to issue a book about a dead guy which shows him in private. Not too much difference to Prenter.

I also said that it is no coincidence that those posters in this thread advertising the book are nowhere to be seen elsewhere on qz. Says it all ....

I stand by my Word that this book is just about making a quick buck on a so called friend who just happens to be a wellknown celebrity while movie is coming out about him and his band at the same time.

And I certainly dont need no self proclaimed lawyers threatening me for my opinion about this.i would hsvethe right to sue those guys as well as rhey insulted me in the gfm page. But as i am not in kindergarden anymore i leave it as ut is as i have more important things to do

Villiers2 I got the screen shots of him saying the money was already gone if you need any more I can email them to you if you PM me your address. I have a feeling he might try to edit it remove comments. GoFundMe shows all the money there and what he tried to claim they did was pull the money out already. GoFundMe responded last night saying they have not touched the money if you need that screen shot of that email too.

I'm not responding to him but just saying to the general public that Villier's first account had been on the thread since it began and for over a year everyone here knew she was a lawyer. It's in the threads as far back as 2017. Some of us also had her facebook page. I'm happy to say I support her action here. And just to the general public....an opinion and "your money was gone right from the start....." are two very different things and boy am I sure glad I wasn't the one that made that statement.



Back to the movie now!

Oh and again to general public (since some people like to edit comments after they've posted them) a question to Villiers2: can someone sue for harassing Thor and Lee on their GoFundMe page and then claiming harassment himself when Thor responded with a calm none threatening reply?

Why waste time and taxpayer money to sue a lone idiot with absolutely no credibility or common sense?

Spending money on this kinda crap is like flushing it right into the toilet. So the money is gone right from the Start is a fitting statement. There you have it again. Like spending 50p on the sun reading Prenters dirty laundry. Good luck sueing me. Gonna inform QPL as well. Maybe those pix are under Copyright Control and QPL might be interested.......if there are pix from Freddies own private collection they sure will......

TSO please direct all further thoughts or comments on this to my PM. But to answer your question hypothetically, no. They could try to but would only end up losing and paying court and legal costs. The act of harassment and false claims came from the other party on two different websites. Thor and Lee's responses have been non threatening and within the legal space. Making false statements of where our money has gone is a very different matter all together. As I said, all original comments have already been captured. Please do not engage with him any further.

Pretty sure she said pro bono. I don't think the guy will ever make it to court. He knows he wouldn't win.

Dustin pro bono means the lawyer is free, not the time of the judge and court costs for time, which would still be paid. That's what they mean. However, as Dustin said- it probably wouldn't even get to a judge (-would almost certainly be settled out of court). As someone in the legal field I can tell you having a party claim you're running a money based scam is no joke. It's not about wasting time or money. It's very much illegal to do and believe it or not can be punishable by heavy fees or time away. It wouldn't cost Thor or Lee anything to press charges should they choose to. Ultimately, doing anything would be up to them, but defamation of character and these claims is not something to take lightly. Not when money is involved. It's way more than a trolling situation, legally.

Inform QPL of a book they already know about? Yeah I'm sure that'll get you far. And they aren't copyrighted by anyone but Lee. Lee took them. Lee owns them. Freddie never owned them and they are under no legal umbrella of Freddie's estate or QPL. You really screwed the pooch here, run. Hate to be you right now.

Funny. He threatened to sue Thor and Lee and second ago and now hes claiming them suing him is a giant waste of money and would be stupid. Well it won't cost Thor or Lee a dime to sue you, friend. That's pro-bono for ya. You also wont waste a judges time either. The guy we sued 2 years ago for DC against my dad settled out of court within days and didn't cost us a penny. Not a pretty place to be, where you're standing.

I agree I think Rami is coming around. The photos that came out before the official stuff was released didn't impress me at all but it's tightening up. The guy that plays Brian is Gwilym Lee. He has the right build for it alright.

LEE owns the photos and can do what he wants with HIS property. Why should Lee never release his photos because they include a person who has passed away? Yes he was private when he was alive, but he is not and therefore cannot be upset at them being revealed. They're just photos of him having fun with friends, it's nothing controversial.
Why should these living men not share their past and photos with us just because Freddie was a part of it? It's their story too and they're fully entitled to do so. Not sure what the problem is.

At least i am not the onky one who finds it shameful to cash in on your dead friend. The GFM auction stopped at 1700 Dollars. Surely they expected more thats why they changed their sound from being humble to openly insult critics. This book will never find a Publisher believe me.....some firms still have dignity left

According to your opinion. And thank God your opinion doesn't change or effect anything. The rest of us will be very excited to read the book.
