Dear Dave,

We would refer you to notification of Monday’s date regarding the above, the contents of which are self-explanatory (hereinafter referred to as the "Notification"), to which we have been retained and have yet to receive the courtesy of a response.

Notwithstanding the fact that you contend that you are not and Internet Service Provider (which we would dispute), you also seem to fail to recognize that your web-site is accessible all over the world and that, as such, your actions and, furthermore, your refusal to act, opens you and your company up to the possibility of law suits in - inter alia - the all states of the United States and the United Kingdom. Such law suits could result in your being refused entry to both the US and the UK. Accordingly we would strongly recommend that you immediately comply with the Notification, failing which we shall be obliged to advise our clients' attorneys to take against your company (and your company officers) without further notice. We would also warn you that, if such steps do prove to be necessary, our clients' attorneys would also (a) notify the US tax authorities of your commercial activities, (b) notify the US government of your illegal activities.

We shall look forward to hearing from you.

Whilst writing, we would further caution you against communicating or otherwise posting any remarks that could be construed as being defamatory of our clients (or Digiatl Deputy) or that could otherwise be injurious to our clients'(or our) genuine business interests. Similarly, we would inform you that the copyright in the Notification and, indeed, this e-mail is vested in Web Sheriff and that, in the event that you attempt to publish either the Notification or this e-mail on your web-site (or elsewhere), appropriate action shall be taken for infringement of our copyright (we trust, in this regard, that you will concur that the US does recognize copyright). Naturally and notwithstanding the foregoing, all accumulated rights of our clients - including, but not limited to, the right to institute proceedings against your company in the United States - remain strictly reserved.

Yours sincerely,

Digital Deputy? Is that like Deputy Dog?

I like how they are going to refuse your entry into the US. I guess I read that correctly?

Have they listed what infraction you've actually committed other then using the "likeness" of the Beatles?

I thought about deputy dawg also....I love him!
I don't want to say much, since I'd be speculating. What you've read is the only communication so far...
