Ref. GO dtd 1-7 May 2010
First time I come to know that JoeGoaUk figured in Rajan Narayan?s
Straight Thoughts when I read a post in goajourno forum forwaded
by Agusto Pinto on May 3.
Thenafter I also got a mail by the same Agusto with diff subject line but copied
to about 50 others.
?After I finished responding to it (cc to all) see quote 2 below, few hours later,
?the same also appeared on Goanet, again by Agusto Pinto.
Yesterday, I bought the Copy of GO, and found out more about it.
It really surprised me to see RN besides taking on FN also took on JoeGoaUk.
Perhaps, he ran out of all other ?Save Goa? or politicians related issues or thoughts.
Also, it appears that RN,? while writing his thoughts,
referred to some other published source (not being his own or GO?s) and
hence it appears that? he did not know what he was talking about.?
Particularly,? when he accused JoeGoaUk? of ?posting Konkani CDs
without any permission of those who have brought out the CDs?
What CDs he was talking about, audio or VCDs?
It clearly reveals whatever information he got? is a borrowed one or
?second hand information or without knowing the facts.
Fyi, JoeGoaUk (since 2004)?only promotes the new arrival of VCDs with
scanned copy of the VCDs Front Cover and with the names of the?
director/producer, other artistes, price tag and the month/year? in
which it was released.
JoeGoaUk does not sell VCDs
Here is a latest VCD/ Example
EK JIVO BORVANSO by A.B. Luis
With Cersor board Certificate
With Anil Pednekar, Selvy, Sandra, Anthony San,
Master Aron, Spirit, Antonette de Maina etc etc
VCD/DVD Rs.200????????????????? April/2010
His collection even featured in Herald recently
Check it out here
Talking about copyright violations, RN or his GO pretends as if they have nothing to hide.
They too steal other people?s work of which I was also a victim at least once (see quote 2)
Some may steal it with clear conscious others may do it with dirty mind
Having said all this, nowhere I am denying the fact that I myself is a thief
My next one would be on ?Tiatr, Tiatrists, TAG & JoeGoaUk.
This is what I sent to all (including RN) on 3rd May.
Looks like there are some misunderstanding particularly in respect to
posting of VCD Covers which is a free promotion of new VCD arrivals at
Over 325 VCDs I have? and about half of them still remained sealed or
And here i am,? like a fool, kept on buying the new arrivals as and
when they came out for sale only to promote them on net.
I really thought I was helping our Konkani
I really thought I was helping our artistes
I really thought I was helping in promoting our Goa and its culture & tradition
If tiatirsts or VCD producers have a problem, they should have at
least written to me once.
Most of them have their email IDs though.
Looks like they want to make a 'news' first.
My conscious is clean
but a lesson learnt
So, we all are thieves including Rajan Narayan's GO.
GO once used my 4in1 casino boat pics, w/o my permission (Jan.2009) as
if there were no copyright violations
I wrote to them (GO) and their reply was
Dear Mr Joe,
We're extremely sorry for not crediting your photograph in the
newspaper. We will do so in the forthcoming issue and we would be
?happy to send you a cheque for the photo we published if you could send
us a mailing address. I apologise again for the error.
Jonquil Sudhir de Souza
I have a name 'Joe' so says GO in above reply
They say they would give the credit in the forthcoming issue but they didn?t .
So, what we learnt from this lesson?
?Padrinche xermao vhoniek nhuim?
What is good for the goose is good for the gander.
May he who has no sin, cast the first stone
After all this agro,? you may now wish to know
If I would continue buying/reading GO?
- Why not?
Infact, I never miss it despite of the fact it recently gone up from Rs.5 to Rs.8.
I always buy my copy even though it sometimes/always available online for free.
That?s my way of supporting Goan causes.
Further more, of the Rs.8,? I spent, the first Rs.3 ?I recover from the front page,
next 2 from the cover story, then next 2 from stray thoughts and the remaining 1
from the rest.
?We are for Goa. So we all say
Some? may show/prove it with louder noise
Some may do it with moderate noise
Yet some may do it silently or anonymously?
Whatever they do in whatever ways they can..
Let them do it!
