Remember Daniela Jennifer Korhammer, who hired a lwyer to attempt to scrub the Internet of a photo of her drinking beer at Oktoberfest?
Her lawyer, Dr. Hans-Peter Philipp Anlauf has sent me a followup now that his deadline for demanding that I remove the photo has expired. You can read the original LOLsuit threat here. His tone is a bit softened now that he realizes he exposed his client’s name. He wrote:
I just visited your website and found the text of my email to you concerning the Oktoberfest pic published for everyone to see.
Please take the text and your comments off your website. Neither my client nor me intended to threaten you.
We just asked you to remove the pic from your website as my Client Never agreed that the foto was taken and/ or published – nothing more, nothing less.
In your legal notice you say among other things below ‘copyright notice’: ‘If i made a mistake i will rectify it at once.’ My email definitely was not ment to be a ‘bullying tactic’ as you name it. It is matter of factly a normal situation that people mandate lawyers in such matters.
I am sorry in case you felt you were being bullied and ask you to be so kind as to remove the pic, the letter and your comments.
We did not accuse you of international crime, as you say, my Client just feels uncomfortable with the pic on your website. This fact applies to other websites as well. I hope you can understand her better now and me, too.
Please remove the pic and the text.

The answer to removing the photo and the text would therefore be a “No.” And if Dr. Anlauf makes some kind of living ripping women off for legal services to attempt to scrub photos off of websites by sending silly emails to webmasters, then this should serve as an example of his success rate.
A Google search for both Dr. Anlauf and Daniela Korhammer now lists me as the second most authoritative link on the subject.
Also, check out the real photo of Daniela, who is dumb enough to hire a lawyer to delete an internet photo of herself-
Yeesh! She doesn’t have a fourhead- she has a fivehead.
