I kind of think of extortion as making a threat and demanding compensation to prevent you from following through on the threat...Prenda merely threatened people who downloaded the videos that Prenda had uploaded itself...so it's a honeypot civil legal action...Racketeering perhaps?

Prenda set up an account to sting people...you can sue people for entrapment on a civil level...piracy is considered a crime..and if you had been following these articles concerning Prenda...you would realize that they would get discovery granted of thousands of doh's in court and upload the porn themselves (check my submitted articles section under my user name to see who did grant them discovery)...just stop doing as you do.

Prenda purposefully uploaded porn to the Internet to bust people...this is legally known as entrapment...which is illegal...What makes you think that Prenda didn't commit piracy by uploading said porn? *sarcasm* Clearly for copyright protection for sure...
I will say this once...I'll say it again...the reason 9/11 had the chance to occur was because the NSA refused to hand data over to the FBI that the FBI needed...It happened not due to the lack of surveillance, but due to a lack of transparency between agencies...
I'm surprised Ohio's Riverside Methodest Hospital isn't mentioned..My father got a cancer of the appendix involving malignant carcinoma with mucinin...it webbs the tissue surface of his organs like the Zerg have that goup they must use to grow on to spread... Anyway, my dad got a very new procedure that only 4 hospitals in the world perform...Hot Chemo Bath...
I was going to write about how proper preparedness for such situations is a good thing...but I found a lot of these methods completely ludicrous. They are trying too hard to traumatize the students into thinking they need to stay calm...as a psychologist, I find the use of blood caps and firing blanks quite a lot more distressing, which only causes the human brain to fear the situation more rather than tell it to prepare should the occasion actually arise. There is a very simple way to drill...you don't need actors, you don't need police involvement, you only need the steps to be carried out to secure the situation...that's all.
Scared Straight failed because it used typical prison euphemisms in order to show how scary it was to be in prison rather than actually tell the students what the convict's life was actually like before and in prison.
"Second, the documents Mr. Godfread proposes to file are inadmissible because they are not authenticated. Mr. Godfread claims that the exhibits "appear" to be financial records of Prenda Law, Inc. Perhaps he is right, but I have not reviewed Prenda Law's financials and neither, presumably, has he. Until he can authenticate the documents, they are inadmissible;"
No? How about now?

Lets shorten that shall we?
"The documents Mr. Godfread proposed to file are inadmissible because they are inadmissible!"
Prenda's practices are totally illegal because they are totally illegal :-P
First...all one has to do is take a crash course in basic US High School Geology to learn how fracturing shale can destablize the terrain at least 3 miles above it.
Second...TRADE SECRETES MY FUCKING ASS...Fracking is FRACKING...the basic method of extracting petroleum and natural gas products from shale through fracking is virtually the samw no matter what you do.
Here's a thought that will blow your minds...when they say "It's trade secret that varies with each company", what they're really saying is "We don't have a standardized method of doing this". That's the danger in it...it's not regulated as much as oil drilling or mining is....
As for the trademark on methods...look at Chesapeake Energy's website on fracking...it shows EXACTLY how they're doing it!
The fact that the government was scanning way too much has been a statistical constant...the prevented attacks some view as nonexistant actually did exist...At that time, the search was narrowed to only spying people on foreign soil.....
I think because of this mass of statistical data the NSA has does a lot of bad math for "good" intentions...
I see where they could easily think that the metadata collected can easily create a psych profile for pretty much every smart phone user on Earth.
Bear in mind I'm putting rights aside for a moment as it is fairly obvious that the 4th Amendment was violated...I'm here to talk about math:
The mathamatical flaw, it seems, isn't in the data collected about us creating a good psych profile..it's the quantity in which it was collected. When collecting metadata (variables in statistics and marketing) it's alwats good to have good quality data in small organized chunks...The NSA gets an F in Statistics and Marketing...which deals in predictable outcomes...too much data can cause issues when data is actively being sought out...
In short...mathematically, the NSA had good quality data...but they now have so much data that a super computer has trouble finding crorelation data...
Now in my profession, when a correlation study is run, we try to do a narrowed search about the specific data we need...the term "terrorist" is extremely broad in my opinion as psych classification metadata because there are so many things to look at and collect for to match thay profile...The NSA failed so badly to narrow the data they needed that the abnormalities could not be spotted sufficiently...
I can now conclude that the entirety of the NSA completely failed in preventing Behngazi and Boston.
As it is clear as a bell that a Lawyer wrote the article...I must point out this one thing. Given that she is quite reliable in expressing the generalized version of testimony...the following caught my eye.
Mr. Steele also testified that he believed the use of Mr. Cooper's signature on this document was authorized, because Steele introduced Cooper to the owner/controlling member of AF Holdings.
Now I do admittedly have Asperger Syndrome on the Autism Spectrum, so as such my mind, like most judges in a court room, take plain language very very seriously. The above statement implies to me that Steele simply thought that Cooper's signature was Authorized simply for just meeting a person. Since this is an accurate assessment to Steele's testimony on the matter, this all seems rather ominous to me about Steele. No lawyer in their sound mind could and should ever consider that simply introducing someone to another person as a means of authorizing the use of that person's signature. That's neither legally binding, nor will it ever be. Hats off to Mrs. King :)
"The closest thing that might apply to patent trolls is disability, as in their disabled nature when it comes to producing a freaking product or service. But that's a stretch even a drunk judge is unlikely to buy."
The nice young men in their white clean coats are coming to give them their meds :-3
For those who are curious about what the patent is over....the description of it is along the lines of "Creating custom preferences based upon user decisions"...I am thinking back to Ultima IV where you are asked a bunch of questions to choose your class of character with that!
There is one thing that should be noted. When any person with some sort of mental trauma in their life begins to lash out irrationally, and claims that they worked with al-Qaeda in secret with our government, needs to be detained for psych evaluation. Maybe the kid getting detained would be escaping from a particularly bad home life.
Actually, the charges are valid. The charges mentioned in the article are in fact minor ones. The most that could happen to P.T. is a psych evaluation under them. I know kids say the darnedest things and all, but man, claiming ties to al-Qaeda and claiming that you've secretly worked with them is so far fetched, it's probable that P.T. needed to be evaluated to figure out what was wrong in his or her life because of the way he/she lashed out. This is Ohio; we are mild by comparison.
His source for he initial denial that the NSA was doing no harm was the NSA itself....which means he understood full well what they were up to. They told him that they were complying with FISC orders and rulings which he is privy to seeing...if it were plausible deniability, the NSA would not have spoken to him.
