A satirical post published to Robin Hood of Keene’s facebook page yesterday had apparently gulled a few advocates of the STOP FREE KEENE!!! facebook group into believing that some participants’ previous efforts to prompt intellectual property lawsuits by the Disney Corporation had been a success. The evidence presented was a redacted Cease and Desist letter on which Michael Eisner, Thomas Mullins, and Mickey Mouse were CC’d. The letter purported to be from the Chester, Nelson, and Albuquerque law firm in Orlando, Florida, on behalf of The Walter Disney Corporation. It was dated from exactly one year prior, and identifies, “attorneys representative of the STOP FREE KEENE!!! LLC” as being the original source of the complaints. Accompanying the letter, a short message from Robin Hood implied that the new profile image for the page had been altered to include Doge as part of a deal with Walter’s attorneys.
One April Fools’ post appeared at STOP FREE KEENE!!! and collected five facebook-likes before vanishing altogether between seven and eight in the evening, approximately forty minutes after publication.
Another false-positive on the corporate lawsuit joke appeared in the group earlier today, and remained visible after being revealed as a comedic parody. The second post has also since disappeared from the group’s page.
