The Real Keira-Anne and Miss604 on CTV

Comments 11 by Rebecca Bollwitt

A short while ago Keira was contacted by a reporter about the MySpace identity debacle. Since its discovery, she was able to get the profile deleted and notify some of the imposter’s contacts. Luckily I had time to capture some screenshots of the photos posted on the account before its removal. It’s nice to look back and laugh at the good times she and I had in “Hay Park” when she was visiting from Austin.

Not sure if I’ll get some face time on the story, but we’re meeting with CTV this evening so I assume it will be on the 6:00pm or late night news.

Unfortunately, as experienced with The Crazy Canucks, CTV usually pulls their content from YouTube so we may not be able to view it later – save for my whatever my mom captures with her VCR – so let us know how it goes.

    wait, you’re advocating the theft of CTV content for profit in the same breath as you’re complaining about impropriety on the internet?

    ‘reader’: you’re right, we shouldn’t redistribute CTV content however I’ve linked to the TV station in this post, mentioned their name and said it will be on the CTV nightly news, promoting their program. I am not saying that it is *my* television station and *I* am producing the segment and putting it over *my* airwaves, as in my eyes, that would be in the same vein as the MySpace identity spoof.

    Where’s the profit?

    Congrats on the CTV air time, too bad there’s no way to see it. I am not home yet (at a friends’) but I wish I had seen the interview.

    i think a Rick Mercer Report piece on this would be wicked.

    As one who lives outside of North America, it would be nice to see how their CTV piece turned out.

    I could certainly do without people stealing content, or the whole online identity theft. I guess it boils down to, unless you give credit where it is due or take something and make it your own, don’t use it.

    Well, at least they followed the first rule of identity theft: when adopting someone else’s identity, pick someone hot.

    Amen, Darren.

    Identity Theft is so rampant these days because it is quite easy to harvest information from someone else.~-`
