I'd like to see the "x-art" tag added to this story and other related stories. Calling plaintiff "Malibu Media" is exactly what it wants: this "company" was created with a sole purpose of filing shakedown lawsuits, and therefore to shield the actual pornographer from unwanted publicity.
Does anyone know the details of this "Establishment of criminal offences for unintentional infringement of copyright..." ? Sounds metaorwellian to me, to the point I'm not sure that what I see around me is objective reality, and not the Martix.
True, and any judge would give an attorney a benefit of doubt (actually, plenty of benefit) if he claimed that a dog ate his email. Yet only if the reputation of the said attorney was not that badly damaged.
Well, while it was me who first questioned the authenticity of Lutz's signature, I'm not so sure now. Here is another sample, and this one was signed by Lutz for sure: I communicated with the notary: she does not know Lutz, he just walked in, showed his ID and got his signature notarized.
It may be a different (and more plausible) theory: due to his dependency on "recreation," Lutz's level of sobriety is very volatile, hence his signature is inconsistent.
There is a dimension (almost off-topic) that only non-native speakers would understand. In late 70s rock music hit me upon the head (in a good sense): it was something unspokenly magic. With the words I did not understand, but it did not matter. When I finally started understanding the lyrics... well... not all, but a sizable portion was an utter disappointment.
I don't know what to make of it, but Flint Million's relative (according to public databases) is Maureen Ellen Toonkel, who just happens to be a Rehabilitation Counselor for the Disabled in Minnesota. Have no idea if she is involved or not, just found this fact curious.
You'd think Hansmeier would be busy trying to defend all of the cases he's been losing where he owes attorneys' fees for his copyright trolling efforts, but apparently he just can't stop filing questionable lawsuits.
I was wondering too: whether he delusionally continues to believe in his superior intellect and its ability to make easy money, or he finally started thinking about raising some funds for the inevitable criminal defense.
