TO THE LOSER GOES THE SPOILS

The fight that has ensued from the filing of the lawsuit against Alax Goddard and the minor who claims defamation by the members of Prinniefied.com may not be a fight to defend the first amendment.

The fight being put up by Sandra Goddard and her supporters may be nothing more than a money gambit. One of the first acts of Goddard and her supporters was to create an on line source for souviners. Items such as t shirts, coffee mugs hats and jackets are now offered for sale through Zazzle.com.

TO THE VICTOR GOES THE SPOILS

This venture will generate chump change, for certain, but it may only be a first step. What is being done with the fight is an effort to establish name recognition. The more her name is put out into the public sector, the more it will be known.

TO THE TALKING HEADS GOES THE SPOILS

The future profits for Alex Goddard will not be in trinkets, but in books. That is the real goal here. It is a certainty that sometime down the road, there will be a book. It does not matter if she wins or loses her legal battle.

TO THE PLAINTIFF GO THE SPOILS

Her ultimate victory will be a book about how she fought the good fight. Her goal should be obvious since she is surrounding herself with established presences in the areas necessary to write and then promote a book.

First she has established herself as a staffer on an on line new media broadcast site. The owner of the site has already joined the battle with her offering his support through broadcasts on his internet radio show.

Next, Alex Goddard has allied herself with an established author out of Gig Harbor Washington who, herself is writing a true crime novel. This gives Alex Goddard an inside track when it comes to seeking expert advice needed to write and then market her book.

Then Alex Goddard is building a network of supporting bloggers to widen her name recognition.

At the appropriate time and at the apex of the fight, the announcement will be made that a book is in the works and to “stay tuned.”

Yes this is only a theory on my part, a theory based on past actions. Remember Pete Rose. Remember OJ Simpson, remember Jose Baez, Remember Casey Anthony.

These are just a few past and future examples where the winners and losers of the various fights have attempted to profit from them.

Stay Tuned
