NOTE: I'm posting this in a different board based on someone's recommendation. To clarify, I'm a law school drop out turned construction foreman who checks out various law/defense oriented boards from time to time to offer advice to people who can't afford a defense attorney. In a former life I wanted to work for the Southern Poverty Law Center, but anyway.... I was recently reading another messageboard where a poster stated that he was being sued by a porn company for piracy, and didn't know what to do. It was the first I"d heard of this, and someone posted a link to a website called dietrolldie.com and another called fightcopyrighttrolls.com I looked into it, and it's crazy stuff. The long and the short of it is that these guys use shoddy IP tracking software to identify defendants, and then harass them and threaten to publicly embarass them by telling their friends, family and co-workers that they illegally downloaded Twat Rapers 3 or something like that. The head of one of the firms falsely listed his grounds-keeper as the head of their company, based in an offshore tax haven and forged his signature. The grounds-keeper is now suing him, and he's probably going to be brought up on a lot of criminal charges. Still though, these guys are wasting our tax dollars that pay for the legal system to shake down a lot of innocent people along with the real pirates, and it's really fucked up. The only way to do anything about it is to write to your Attorney General and your congressmen. Check out those sites, though, they're a fun read. AND, be sure to watch this video: http://www.kgun9.com/news/local/163490786.html and check out this article - http://fightcopyrighttrolls.com/2012...th-his-office/ Just be sure to send any letters or emails anonymously; there are a lot of rumors these bastards will try to track you down and falsely use your IP address to falsely accuse you as payback. The forms you send your Attorney General are publicly available in a lot of states, which also is really fucked up.
