SAN MATEO, Calif. - March 13, 2019 - s4story -- FOR WORLD STORYTELLING DAY...
*INTRODUCING...A WHOLE NEW GENRE OF STORYTELLING THAT WILL CREATE SOME FASCINATING FREE SPEECH ISSUES AND HAVE A TREMENDOUS IMPACT ON MANY ASPECTS OF SOCIETY...

*THE BOOK IS  CALLED "CEMETERY OF LIES" BY ROBERT BARROWS, THE INVENTOR OF A VIDEO TOMBSTONE CALLED THE VIDEO ENHANCED GRAVEMARKER (U.S. PATENT #7,089,495)

"March 20th is World Storytelling Day and video tombstones will create a whole new genre of storytelling, perfect for movies, books and TV," according to Robert Barrows, author of a book called "Cemetery of Lies" and inventor of a video tombstone called the Video Enhanced Gravemarker (U.S. Patent #7,089,495). www.barrows.com/invention.html

Video tombstones will also have a tremendous impact on many aspects of society. They will also create a lot of controversy and raise some fascinating Free Speech issues because who knows what people might say from beyond their grave through their video tombstone, and will it be truth or lies?

Along the lines of stories told through video tombstones, Barrows wrote a book called "Cemetery of lies."

"Cemetery of Lies" is a collection of intimate secret confessions, as told from beyond the grave, through video tombstones. The stories are about life and love, sex and romance, good and evil, success and money, truth and lies and Heaven and Hell, with insights and advice about almost every aspect of our lives," according to Barrows.

...WHAT KINDS OF STORIES WOULD WE HEAR FROM YOUR OWN VIDEO TOMBSTONE?

*Would you just say sweet things to loved ones?

*Would it finally be time to tell your side of the story?

*Would it finally be time to make amends?

*Or, would it be time to say everything you never had the guts to say nor the opportunity to say while you were still alive?"

Imagine the controversies that will arise when video tombstones start appearing in cemeteries on a regular basis.

For one, it will make cemeteries fascinating places to visit because who knows what you might hear from some of the video tombstones, and cemeteries will come "alive" with all kinds of stories that might be told through video tombstones.

"And imagine the controversy over the free speech issues," says Barrows.

They say "Dead men tell no tales"...Well, not anymore! Wait until you hear what they might be saying about you down at the graveyard...and will it be truth or lies? And, oh yes, what kinds of things would you record for your video tombstone if you knew you were going to die today?

HERE ARE SOME OF THE FREE SPEECH ISSUES THAT WILL BE ASSOCIATED WITH VIDEO TOMBSTONES:

*What if someone confesses to a crime or makes an incrimination?

*What if they say something slanderous?

*What if they say something anti-governmental?

*Do the dead have free speech rights, too?

*And what can you do if they say something that is true or untrue or not so nice about you?

*How can you pull the plug, and whom can you sue?

*Worse yet, how can you collect?

"With these kinds of free speech issues, video tombstones will create some very fascinating Free Speech Issues that could go all the way to the Supreme Court," says Barrows.

"Video tombstones will also have some interesting implications on many aspects of society," says Barrows.

HERE ARE SOME OF THE SOCIAL IMPLICATIONS OF VIDEO TOMBSTONES:

1) Video Tombstones will change the way we look at life and death.

2) Video tombstones will change the way that history is told.

3) The advent of the video tombstone will also create changes in estate law so that people may have to specify that "Yes, they do want a video tombstone, or no they do not want a video tombstone." (The late Jeff Zaslow of the Wall Street Journal covered this angle of the invention in his April 7, 2005 Moving On column.)

4) "Video Tombstones will also create a whole new genre of storytelling...with all kinds of stories that may be told through video tombstones.

The video tombstone is an incredible storytelling device that is likely to inspire countless tales that will be told through video tombstones," according to Barrows.

While Barrows was working on the patent application, he wondered about some of the things that he might say from his own video tombstone, and that is when he started writing the book called "Cemetery of Lies." You can see more about it at www.barrows.com/novel.html.

5) In addition, the advent of the Video Tombstone will also create two new industries:

A) Manufacturing Video Tombstones, and

B) Producing content for use in video tombstones

6) "Video tombstones will also make cemeteries fascinating places to visit, according to Barrows, because who knows what kinds of juicy stories might be entombed in the video tombstones of both celebrities as well as ordinary people? And who knows who was doing what with whom" he adds. Perhaps we shall find out from their video tombstone?

7) Video Tombstones will also create some major new revenue opportunities for many sectors of the funerary industry including monument builders, funeral homes, perpetual care fund providers and cemeteries.
