vows to fight Bill Cosby's lawyers and continue to provide hosting to House of Cosbys
despite receiving a cease & desist letter [PDF]
. Andy Baio, founder of waxy.org, discusses this in the NY Times
and provides updates on his site. As previously posted
, Bill Cosby's lawyers were successful in getting the creators of House of Cosbys
to stop hosting and making new episodes of their parody series.
It appears that threatening letters and lawsuits will continue to be filed against internet parody sites as celebrities try to protect what they view as their copyright, according to the Wall Street Journal

Bill Cosby has no sense of humor...
In a move that shocked the internet to the very soles of its shoes, Bill Cosby
had his lawyer send a Cease and Desist letter to the creator of channel101.com's
wildly popular House of Cosbys
series, asking... nay, demanding
the cessation of all Cosby related creative material generation. That's it. That's all there is to the story.
Wait! There's more! Channel101.com's Dan Harmon wrote an open letter
to Cosby's legal team informing them of his intention to continue hosting the original 4 episodes, even if no further episodes would be made.
Hell, even the adorable Andrew Baio
loves it. But then again, Andy Baio also
likes peach colored page designs...

This Cosby show is undeserved.
"These people are not parenting. They are buying things for kids - $500 sneakers for what? And won't spend $200 for 'Hooked on Phonics,''' Cosby said. "They're standing on the corner, and they can't speak English. I can't even talk the way these people talk: 'Why you ain't, why you is. '... And I blamed the kid until I heard the mother talk. And then I heard the father talk. Everybody knows it's important to speak English except these knuckleheads.''
