This wanted poster was edited in Photoshop in an attempt to find this pirate and bring him to justice.
For further information on the case of the Dread Pirate Santa we ask that you visit this blog post for a link to the NORAD Tracks Santa site, edited with Hackersarus XRay Goggles. NORAD plans to use this site that was formerly used to bring entertainment to excited children on Christmas Eve to track down Santa during his delivery process in order to catch him in the act.

Furthermore, here is a News Report on the Dread Pirate Santa edited with Audacity.

I hope after this Final Project in DS106 that everyone is aware of the seriousness of the Dread Pirate Santa’s copyright violations. Throughout DS106 we have been asked to consider the borderlines of what is copyright. Santa is not borderline however. The Dread Pirate Santa is a prime example of a man who distributes music, movies, and other copyrighted material without the consent of the companies that produce them. It is piracy, and piracy used to entitle a death sentence of stringing one up by the neck until they are dead. Fortunately for Mr. Kringle, the death penalty no longer applies to this form of piracy, and a life behind bars seems like Kringle’s fate. In conclusion, may this project serve as a reminder to my fellow DS106ers. With great power comes great responsibility. Do not steal something that is not yours. Remember what we learned from Remix week. Fair use is a defensible position. Blatantly stealing and redistributing copyrighted material like the Dread Pirate Santa however is illegal. You wouldn’t steal it off of a shelf. Pirating DVDs and other copyrighted material is wrong.
