A “Stealth Rottweiler”

Following up on a story the blawgosphere chewed on a few weeks back, Peter Lattman of the WSJ blog posts on the latest Martin Singer cease-and-desist letter controversy.

Singer’s letters usually claim that they are copyrighted and may not be published further. (The particular letter on Lattman’s radar has an interesting commentary on its recepient’s likely response. But you are going to have to go through the WSJ’s blog to find it.)

As I know almost nothing about copyright law and libel, I can’t comment on the merits of the dispute. However, I can say that Lattman has unearthed a great quote from Singer client Priscilla Presley, who apparently once said “Marty Singer is a very nice man who loves his family. But if he thinks someone has done me harm, he is a stealth rottweiler.”

A stealth rottweiler? Isn’t the whole point of rottweilers that you know they are coming?

    I think the point she was making was this: When you don’t expect anything, he’s there like a viscious dog. Think about a movie where some fellow jumps the fence of someone’s yard. All is quiet. Then big dogs appear. I’m think that’s what she was trying to say.
