My name is Joe "Dragon S5" Youngblood. I am decently well known among the on-line gaming community. About a month and a half ago we had a gamer begin abusing our services.
We promptly banned this person who claimed to be a hacker, changed thier IP and came back. we spent weeks gaining the needed information on him to send to SBC (His ISP), and I have even went as far as to contact his mom and her live-in boyfriend to stop this (they claim he lives down the streeet, but SBC confirms the IP's he uses originate at that address) Finally his moms boyfriend seemed to make headway when he recieved notice that we were asking SBC to open an investigation into the abuse of their TOS and AUP.
Apparently this stopped the kid from abusing our services almost immediately until two days ago when he posted this on the internet: http://media.putfile.com/dragons5
He came back to our servers to distribute the above link. In this poor excuse for a rap song the kid claims to be me and begins making vulgar statements about who I am and what I do, one of those is "...I rape young small men"
I have contacted the site host who told me in an email "The file does not violate our TOS, while it may be slander that is not in violation of our TOS. Ask the file creator to request deletion"
What can I do? Is the host site liable? can I threaten legal action on the parents of this malicious teen? It has not been listened too very much, but I am afraid of this damaging my online reputation as I am set to launch a streaming radio station on Oct. 14th ( www.radiorevolt.com )
Thanks for the help and the great site,
Joe "Dragon S5" Youngblood
