This man Madhan Raju has been spamming me by email with a ridiculous copyright "notice". He posted this fake message also on various blog posts. I deleted all of them. His emails are set to auto-delete.
But as a result of this ridiculous man's fake messages, my ISP has taken down my blog post on Swami Suddhananda on the ground that they are obliged to do so under the law. I now have to issue a counter-notice, thus wasting my time.
I decided to check with Samvit Sagar Trust, the copyright owner of Swami Suddhananda's books. This is the message I received a while ago, today. Through this blog post I challenge the fakester Madhan Raju to prove that he has ANY authority from Swami Suddhananda to send out his messages to me and to my ISP. I'll also send him an email, and will post his reply publicly. I want to get a SIGNED COPY OF THE AUTHORITY LETTER FROM SWAMI SUDDHANANDA IN FAVOUR OF THIS MAN – USING SWAMI SUDDHANANDA'S EMAIL ID (WHICH I HAVE) – OR MADHAN RAJU MUST BE PREPARED TO BE KNOWN PUBLICLY AS AN IMPOSTER.
RESPONSE FROM SAMVIT SAGAR TRUST:
Today, 4 hours ago
Thank you for kind information. This letter or the writer has nothing to do with us. Swamiji holds you in high esteem and has often talked about your intellectual honesty. Our suggestion will be to ignore the letter. In case we, Sir, come to know anything about it, we shall keep you informed.
Samvit Sagar Trust

My name is Madhan Raju SP and I am the CYBER CRIME INVESTIGATOR (LEGAL) of IDEA CYBER TECHNOLOGY. A website that your company hosts (according to WHO.IS and DMCA.COM information) is harassment infringing against motivational harassment (abuse) of my client.
The harassment infringing web content can be found at below website link:
This letter is official notification under Section 512(c) of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (”DMCA”), and I seek the removal of the aforementioned infringing material from your servers. I request that you immediately notify the infringer of this notice and inform them of their duty to remove the infringing material immediately, and notify them to cease any further posting of infringing material to your server in the future.
Please also be advised that law requires you, as a service provider, to remove or disable access to the infringing materials upon receiving this notice. Under US DMCA law a service provider, such as yourself, enjoys immunity from a copyright lawsuit provided that you act with deliberate speed to investigate and rectify ongoing harassment infringement. If service providers do not investigate and remove or disable the infringing material this immunity is lost. Therefore, in order for you to remain immune from a harassment infringement action you will need to investigate andultimately remove or otherwise disable the infringing material from your servers with all due speed should the direct infringer, your client, not comply immediately.
I am providing this notice in good faith and with the reasonable belief that rights against my client are being infringed. Under penalty of perjury I certify that the information contained in the notification is both true and accurate, and I have the authority to act on behalf of my client of the involved in content.
Should you wish to discuss this with me please contact me directly to my email for detailed explanation about this harassment infringement.
