The words and name 'Cross Counties Radio' is a registered trademark. Did you receive permission to place information about this radio station and the use of its registered trademark on your site from the Directors and Committee of Cross Counties Radio Limited?

Please contact us for relevant permissions and until this is done, please remove this post as it has various details that are not correct to avoid the possibility of legal action.

Legal Officer:

Really? Are you a genuine poster or is this just SPAM which is what I suspect.? As I can't see any reference on this page or any post (except yours) referring to Cross Counties Radio, that's another reason I suspect you are SPAM.
I'm not responsible for the site, just a poster who posts to help out people with reception problems when they post somewhere on the site. SPAM posts like yours are just a plain irritant.

If you are genuine, then maybe you should be more specific about the issue, and if you really were a legal person, you'd know how to contact the owner of the site. That said, there are many websites around the www that list radio stations and the places they serve. Have you seen Cross Counties Radio for example?
AFAIK there's a thing called "Freedom of speech" in this country and people are entitled to talk about whatever they like and that includes radio stations.

Dear Anon,

Thank you for your response to our Legal Officer who works tirelessly to get websites that take information, in many, many cases publishing wrong details or personal information that should not be in the public domain.

Unfortunately UKFREE.TV has published wrong details about our organisation which is a registered trademark and so we would have a legal right under the law to take action if we wish. Maybe this can be avoided with your help?

WWW.UKFREE.TV seems to be owned by a company called WWW.ENOM.COM whom I will be attempting to contact via their domain registrant who is www.icann.org - but perhaps this issue can be solved quicker with assistance of the people who help run this site?

It is important to note that www.media.info have also been contacted by us on various occasions for listing completely wrong information about our organisation and I am currently awaiting them to at least check our website and get our address location and details correct!

The Sir Frank Whittle Studio School does not even exist any more and is not in Magna Park, where our studios are. They don't seem to answer problems or want to help correct issues either which is very frustrating when all we want is the facts to be published and in keeping with who and what we are!

If you wish to call me ANON, my name is Dave. You can leave your email address on our voicemail on 0116 326 3000 and I will email you personally. I would like some quite important facts on this site changing or removing, including the fact that Magna Park is not in Warwickshire and the flag on the map is no where near our 92 FM transmitter.

Magna Park is in Leicestershire and has a LE17 postcode. This is quite important as it relates to an Ofcom broadcast licence and I would have thought your website users would want to have correct licence information available to them from the UK's regulator for broadcasting.

Again, if you take a look at our website you will see the correct details. If you help with posts, then maybe you can correct these details for us?

www.crosscountiesradio.co.uk

I look forward to your call and help with getting the facts corrected or removed completely.

Thank you.

David Harris Boulter
Managing Director

David Harris Boulter: Interesting how you, as a 'legal Director' seem to be the husband of the station manager, and also one of the presenters?

You run a community/RSL, so would have thought you'd be for all the free publicity you can get! So, your map pin is in the wrong place - well, so are those for the major broadcasters - yet they are not threatening legal action against random people on the internet?

Why dont you follow the correct code and refer this to the regulator? Maybe because they will tell you its irrelevant? I suspect also, if you broach this with your lawers - you'll be advised either to drop it or risk a pointless legal bill.

This is a self help group on the internet. The group owner has either abandoned it or is too ill to maintain it. No one knows. But coming on a public forum and threatening legal action in the open forum really isnt going to help

David Harris Boulter: Instead of threatening legal action, particularly against the wrong people (Enom are a domain registrar, they are not the owners of this website), why not just contact the actual owner Brian Butterworth who posts on this website under the name Briantist and ask him to update the incorrect information? You'd be far more likely to get a friendly and more helpful response too.

AK: Thanks for tuning into the Breakfast Show this morning. I am also the Founder :) but not the Legal Officer who is a different person and is tasked with making sure information about our brand is correct. Surely you can agree with that even if you disagree with everything else.

StevensOnln1: Many thanks for your assistance with this, I am sure Briantist will be able to help us to get the details correct on his website, I am sure you will agree, as I do that it is important that the facts should be correct.

I have clicked on the link you placed, but it just returned to this page, can you guide me further or ask Brianist to contact myself? or assist via this thread - or - if you have an email address for Briantist, that willl be helpful. Best regards, Dave

David Harris Boulter: So why are you signing your posts as the legal officer? What im seeing here is someone clutching at straws because they know they have no case. What legal breach do you think has occurred by a random user group having a detail slightly wrong? There is no libel case, either implicit, implied or accidental, no dishonesty or misrepresentation from a legal perspective, just an error on a map? Perhaps you should, instead of making things up about who is posting, actually employ a legal adviser? they will no doubt point out to you, for a fee, the standard disclaimers in such a case as this - that errors and omissions hold no legal weight.

If you can in any way quantify the loss suffered to your business income as a result of this error, you'd have a civil case for small claims, but that legally really is your limit. Personally, i think the damage done by yourself to your own brand by this heavy handed and brash behaviour will far outweigh any other claim!

Oh, and no, i havent listened to you - i researched you on your own company details. Exactly as you should have done here before starting to threaten random strangers on the internet

David Harris Boulter: I don't have any contact details for Briantist, I'm just someone who posts comments on this website. There used to be an about page which I think had some details, but it seems to have broken or been removed, as I can't find it.

Thanks StevensOnln1, I appreciate your communication. This is very helpful, We will do some further investigation.

A couple of questions, if you don't mind as you are very pleasant to deal with.

How did the information get posted here in the first place?

Are you able to make the changes we require StevensOnln1?

AK, I'm sorry that legal@crosscountiesradio.co.uk is causing you some obvious distress so I have changed the address for you to coffee@crosscountiesradio.co.uk
I've removed my sir name so we can work on a first name basis A.

I look forward to your response StevensOnln1 about how information gets placed on this website in the first place.

Best regards,

Dave

Dave: I'm just a volunteer contributor who tries to answer questions and help people when I can, I have nothing to do with running this website. I have no idea what the original source of the information is, nor do I have any way of updating it. Briantist is the person you need, I'm not aware that anyone else is involved in running or updating this website.
