I think someone is making a mountain out of a mole hill. Under the law
there is fair use and anyone can use fair use quotation to rip or praise
a "published" work. To turn to slander of someone who uses your
copyrighted work makes a counterclaim possible. If a person whose
copyright is violated turns to slander of the copyright violator they
have made a big mistake. To use the term NAZI is inflammatory since NAZI
often refers to the murder of millions of people for their ethnic
heritage. Something that a certain copyright violator was not or is not a
party of.
When you have a legal dispute it is better to communicate privately about
such matters. While it is legally wrong to violate copyright sometimes it
is better to work out a more friendly solution. Sometimes mediation works
very well and can resolve issues more quickly and privately.
