In regards to the issue where Tom Biscardi was cited for taking films and photos belonging to other researchers and including them in his fiction (non fiction?) film Pursuit, I have received this communiqué from Bob Daigle the owner of the film that brought this to my attention.

Hello Steve,

I am writing to thank you for alerting me to the intended use of some video that I have copyrighted, and to correct any impression that there was any ill intent on the part of Tom Biscardi in using this video.

I have talked at length to all parties involved, and now realize that I may have not made clear to Jody and Jane what my intended restrictions were when I gave them a copy of my video for their personal use several years ago.

I brought this matter to Tom’s attention, and he proposed a solution which I found to be acceptable, and our agreement has been completed in a prompt and business-like fashion.

When undesired situations arise, I like to give people the benefit of the doubt, and this approach has served me well in this case.

The comment in your posting about the location of the video being Ohio rather than North Carolina is correct, and I hope that is portrayed correctly in Tom’s final product.

Regards,

Bob Daigle  (June 10th, 2013)

So it appears C. Thomas reached into his pocket book and bought off Mr. Daigle’s complaint. Or perhaps he offered him a percentage, who knows.

We’ve given Mr. Biscardi the benefit of the doubt in 2005, only to have another circus act brought to us in 2008. So not so fast.

And what about the Vermont Trail Cam photo being used, or the Georgia Dash Cam being used as “bus footage.”

Once, maybe the benefit of the doubt, but here are three examples of taking other people’s materials.

In other notes of interest

Friday is looking to be an interesting day and we are working on some leads for that impending fiasco. Stay tuned for a blog on Friday morning about this.

Also some other older hoaxed stuff is making it’s rounds on the internet, like this picture of an alleged Bigfoot, which so obvious is a ghillie suit…

And of course the Shawn Bannon 2006 hoax…

Finally…

We’d like to pass our sincerest condolences to our Squatchdetective family member Chris Bennett, who lost his father this past Thursday.

“Chris we all pray for you and your family, and wishing you all the best my brother. Take all the time you need, your seat will be waiting here for you!

Love you man!”

Till Next Time,

Footage owner chimes in…

In a blog earlier today, we mentioned how Tom Biscardi et al has used a video by Bob Daigle taken in the late 90’s from Ohio.

In a response this evening, we heard from Bob through an intermediary…

Steve, Thanks for alerting me to this unauthorized and illegal commercial use of my copyrighted videos. I will be contacting Mr. Biscardi.

The back of the DVD case stating, “No Fake Locations, No fake stories.” Well apparently that’s not true as we shown.

Seems like “Pursuit”, will be pursued, possibly by attornies.

Till Next Time.

This came to my attention over the course of the last few days. Apparently Tom Biscardi has just released a “Blair Witch” style Bigfoot movie with the following advertisement:

huh

Advertisement on the link to the DVD

The confusing thing is at the bottom of the page it says this, as well as the DVD case.

This statement was seen at the bottom of the page, which is it? Real or Fictional. Well we think we have the answer.

On the trailer for the film there are several snips of video footage, and just recently, Biscardi on his podcast had allegedly the two folks responsible for the footage.

 

One of the trailer’s for “Pursuit” showing the clips from Bob Daigle’s film and the Georgia dash cam video from the police car, labeled as “Actual Bus cam video.”

Please read the comments from the person alerting me to this, in an email alerting me to this footage on May 16th, 2013:

On his latest show Tom has a woman on named Jody.  Tom claims the footage in his film trailer, the same that I have had a copy of since the late 1990’s from Bob Dagele. Tom claims that these women Jody and Jane who he had on his latest radio show, the footage is there’s and from North Carolina.                                                                                                                                  

These are a couple of stills from the trailer, “Pursuit.” The incredible thing is, I too met Bob Dagle at Salt Fork State Park in May 2011. He was showing these exact same videos. They were from Ohio, a short distance from the park, as I recall and shot in the 1990’s.

These captures, I had first seen from Bob Dagle at Salt Fork State Park in 2011, showing videos from Ohio taken in the 1990’s.

Also included was this, alleging it was a “Bus Cam Video.”

Note the date and time has been blurred out.

This may look familiar to all of us, because it was on the first episode of “Finding Bigfoot,” as it is the Georgia Police Dash Cam Video.

Here’s the readout from the police cruiser within milliseconds of the clip shown in the movie.

The police cruiser’s data from the dash cam video, featured on “Finding Bigfoot.”

So this all begs the question, which is this? It says fiction, but it’s being labeled as no fake locations or stories.

Well Mr. Biscardi, we have found quite the opposite.

Till next Time,

Squatch-D
