I read your article with a great deal of sadness and dismay.
First and foremost is that nobody goes out of their way to get married in a redwood forest unless they really love redwood forests. Getting married beneath an old growth redwood tree has been a dream shared by me and my wife for a long time. We spent two years hiking redwood groves, both public and private, in order to locate the perfect spot for our wedding. We needed to find private land that had been previously developed (“disturbed land” in CCC vernacular) so that there would be minimal environmental impact. When we found the Ventana campground site it was not exactly in pristine shape — the natural ground cover was gone and it had been paved over with black asphalt! The pictures in the CCC report probably show what the site looked like after I removed (or covered) all the black asphalt (which I found appalling) using either bulldozers or just by spreading dirt and forest brush around the area. It is also possible that this area had been cleared as a camping “pad” for an RV or mobile home. Regardless, an undisturbed forest would not be dirt or asphalt, it would be covered in vegetation of some sort.

The complaint filed in Michigan federal court not only accuses Facebook of using Eminem’s songs for the April launch of a new application called “Facebook Home,” but tells the story of how Facebook’s advertising company, Wieden + Kennedy, attempted to use Eminem to attract new users. Also, aims to show that when threatened with copyright allegations, the ad agency’s response was to attack Eminem’s mentor, Dr. Dre.
The complaint was sent via email on May 20, 2013.
