Retromedia not over

Legal Blast!
January 16, ’10: Thievery, Law and Retromedia Entertainment
by Bill Rebane
About and to:
Fred Olen Ray – Retromedia Entertainment Inc.
9421 Winnetka Avenue – Chatsworth, California 91311
Much has been made of controversies and legal issues between Retromedia and Bill Rebane in connection with certain DVD rights Retromedia once had to The Giant Spider Invasion and Nightmare. Now, after seven years of the Retromedia Conspiracies, some interesting facts emerge that may put a different light on the company which, according to Fred Olen Ray,…. has never been sued……..
Now,…… It is public knowledge that Fred Olen Ray and Retromedia are being sued for what else? “Copyright Infringements”… by Shout Factory and producer Rick Sloan (case number 2:1009cv07179 Federal District Court Filing) Los Angeles, California …………
Much to do has also been made of an arbitration award …… (A totally corrupt one at that) …… awarded by a corrupt arbitrator Harris Tulchin to Retromedia,….. claiming and awarding damages of some $66,000 dollars from this writer. It is interesting to note that such damages have never been proven because, as the record will show, they are fictional at best. No accounting has been provided by Retromedia for eight years to any one, including the arbitrator, any Court of Law, any prosecutor, nor this writer. That’s a lot of money for Retromedia to steal, steal and steal. I would call it plundering and grand larceny.
Is it not strange that, ….. immediately after obtaining the corrupt arbitration award, Fred Olen Ray publicly admitted and claimed that he had been adequately compensated for damages. As I asked before, What damages? If he’s been compensated, where’s the beef? Other questions arise about Fred Olen Ray after committing perjury, just how much did Ray and Sheister Ravine pay the arbitrator for violating around 10 California codes and the Federal Arbitration Act?……
No wonder Retromedia has not presented any type of accounting for 8 years to anyone, the court, the arbitrator or this writer. They would get caught in their own lies and shit.
……… It will be further damaging to Retromedia when a prosecutorial agency finally figures out the criminal aspects of this controversy which are violations of federal laws. All of which have continuously been reported to the FBI and other prosecutorial agencies. Thus far, only the office of the District Attorney of Los Angeles County has taken the stand that Perjury is not a crime in California and that the complaints filed are a tort action……… Maybe because they are too inept to see beyond their noses and simply do not give a shit if federal laws have been violated….
The bottom line here is: The law is the law is the law.
Subsequently, this writer is taking this case to the public forum and to make public demand on Retromedia Entertainment Inc. and Fred Olen Ray in thorough pursuit of putting Fred Olen Ray behind bars together with his lawyer Vince Ravine and arbitrator Harris Tulchin. …… Is this all crying over spilled milk, or getting even?
You can bet your ass it is and much more. When some body commits a crime against you, cheats you, lies in public, defames you and steals money from your pocket and, on top of it all, misuses our system of Justice and makes mockery of constitutional rights, being “pissed”… is putting it mildly. And therefore this writer is making the following public demand on Retromedia Entertainment Inc. and their accomplices for a public accounting and prove otherwise all claims made herein: While lawyers like Vince Ravine can hide behind their fabrications and lies by appearing in a court room, WITHOUT A DEFENDANT PRESENT, Retromedia cannot avoid the facts of the following illegal sales and marketing activities that are on the record, thanks to the innovation of the internet. Let’s see an income statement and accounting for the following, Fred Olen Ray and Retromedia:

All of the above are violations of the Digital Millennium Act and the Copyright Felony Act of 1992. The amount of units sold in 8 years worldwide is not known. However, I am sure the IRS would be very happy to see an accounting and maybe even help as much as anyone else would, including this writer.

  1. You’ve made a very good story.
    If it’s fine with you, I would like to ask permission to use your article as it relates to my problem. I will be glad to negotiate to pay you or hire you for this.

    With Regards from
    Republic Polytechnic

  2. Fred Olen Ray is a dirtbag, plain and simple. He has never created anything on his own that a serious sci-fi/horror fan would buy. He should stick to setting himself on fire at those cheap hole-in-the-wall bars that set up wrestling rings. At least the fire is genuine, whereas nothing else about this jerk is.

    • You got it right my friend. It’s not only Fred Olen Ray but the other dirtbag that protects him the sheister lawyer who seems to have some connections in the
      california legal system and seems to participates in the illegal acts of Retromedia and Fred Olen Ray. 11 years and I still have not received a report
      and an accounting for all those years or stealing.
      Thank’s for writing,

  3. Your site has been saved to my favorites and I have also sent out an email to my friend’s outlook forward to reading more posts in the future!

  4. Good posting ! I wish to realize once you update your blog, where can i subscribe to the website?.That helped us a great deal. I’d been small bit aware of it but your site gave me apparent strategy

    • Our new web site is Independent Artists Pictures . com ( I.A.P) under links you can get
      right to the Journal. After the Retromedia losses still on going. I decided to re instate the
      company I began with in l961. The purpose to market and help independents with
      their start up problems especially in distribution. I am not a lawyer, but I can share
      my experiences of 50 years ( the experience sharing is free, constructive professional
      advise is worked out on a situation basis.) Just too many friends have lost everything
      they ever worked for to unscrupulous distribution practices. There are at this moment
      several pirates practicing their trade big time. No body cares.
      Thanks for writing and the very best to you

    • Hello dan msn. Thank you . you can find me on any search engine Independent Artists Pictures, Bill Rebane News. Twitter and we are not finished on the
      piracy issues. Actually it ‘s just beginning after a year of investigations by a law enforcement agency.. But congress still does not care.. It’s called Justice
      non existent.

  5. Of study course like your net web site but you need to have to examine the spelling on many of your posts. Several of them are rife with spelling troubles and I uncover it genuinely bothersome to tell the real truth nonetheless I’ll certainly arrive back once all over again.

She realized plenty of details, which included how it is like to have an incredible helping mood to get certain people with ease fully grasp specified complex issues. You actually surpassed my expectations. Thanks for producing these warm and friendly, trustworthy, revealing as well as unique tips about the topic to Jane.

  8. The impression one gets of a straightforward process of small claims court sometimes comes from our daytime television viewing of courtroom dramas. Instead, a respondant should find appropriate legal agents in their area as the rules really can be quite complicated instead

    • Thanks for reading and the comment. It get s a lot more complicated then that , when an issue is brought to county civil court that does not have a clue of what
      one is talking about And simply does not want t o deal with an issue that the court knows nothing about . This field is also restricted to legal practitioners
      that are not easily found in remote rural areas. In all. Let’s put it this way; I would not bet on our legal system outside of rice crispy’ s and rabitt turds.
      Anyway; It’s not over until it’s over… and it is no yet……

    • Dear Rhett. Legal Agents? At what price ? they are all idiots and our system of justice is a mess. All the way up to the top.

  9. Further with all the obscure procedures in small claims court, it is really best to be retaining a professional legal agent

  10. Dear How to lighten hair; Delighted to hear your comment and thank you very much for caring. We live in a strange world and have to gauge things as they come along
