(NYT) -- A former South Dakota lawmaker convicted of raping his two foster daughters has sent news organizations what he claims is a copyright notice that seeks to prevent the use of his name without his consent.
A letter and an accompanying document labeled ''Common Law Copyright Notice'' said former state Rep. Ted Alvin Klaudt is reserving a common-law copyright of a trade name or trademark for his name. It said no one can use his name without his consent, and anyone who does would owe him $500,000.

I bet he doesn't believe in the old Hollywood adage that there's no such thing as bad publicity. Or that modern adage that says attempts to get people to stop writing about you only makes even more people write about you.
