It is always suspicious when such incredible luck strikes a troll (instead of a well-deserved lightning :) ... yet since I watched this case carefully, I'm pretty sure there was no foul play. Lipscomb is smarter than Steele, but not smart enough to pull such machination. I read all the Doe 16's motions (attny Ron Smith) and there is simply no way they could be faked.
Lots and lots of Lipscomb's douchebaggery took place during these months, and I'm stunned that he emerged unpunished. But we did not forget, and certainly did not forgive.
As the critic who is being sued by Prenda for defamation, I'm upset by being remained about this horrific ongoing event. Most likely I won't be able to sleep tonight, full of grave thoughts. Maybe I even decide that life is not not worth experiencing this tormenting.
Can you link to another post about Prenda next time? Thank you.
Sorry for both duplicate comment and offtopic: my Logitech mouse is (was) great, but the second one in 6 months failed with the same symptom: it sometimes fires double-click code when you single-click.
Apparently if you double-click on "submit" button, two identical comments are submitted.
A plaintiff is estopped from asserting a copyright claim “if he has aided the defendant in infringing or otherwise induced it to infringe or has committed covert acts such as holding out ... by silence or inaction.” Field v. Google, Inc., 412 F. Supp. 2d 1106, 1115-17 (D. Nev. 2006) citing Quinn v. City of Detroit, 23 F. Supp. 2d 741, 753 (E.D. Mich. 1998).
John Steele, let me make an announcement for you, an announcement you should have made day before yesterday:
"I would like to thank Mr. Neville for uncovering the mega-thief, the initial seeder of our client's copyrighted works. Your our hero, Delvan. Our team of lawyers is currently filing numerous lawsuits around the country... and motions for early discovery asking judges to subpoena ISPs in order to unmask the criminal who nearly destroyed our client's business. Mumbo Jumbo Chicken Gumbo!"
Sorry, I should have edited it out: definitely it is not, someone simply entered this IP address in the name field while discussing it. Search is performed over all the fields...
If it happened half a year ago, I would feel really bad because I accidentally exposed a guy whose IP address could be in Prenda's database. Steele is know for his vindictiveness (see the most disgusting Steele's comment #4). Fortunately, today crooks can't do anything to anyone, they are busy digging to China.
