“I hope you can see I don’t actually have horns growing out of my head, as I have been portrayed by some people.”

— John Simpson, owner of MacImage of Maine, upon meeting Waldo County government officials for the first time. After a legal victory against Hancock County, Simpson has requested all electronic land records from every county in the state using the Freedom of Access Act, with the intention of making the records available and selling copies from a single Web site. The action has led to allegations that Simpson is looking to profit from an FOAA loophole.
