TorrentFreak Pulls The Switcheroo On Copyright Troll That Cited Them In Threat Letters
from the trolling-the-trolls dept
Feeling that was unfair, Torrentfreak changed that page to something that Prenda might not appreciate:
Trolling the trolls. Unfortunately, it's unlikely to have too much of an impact. It's doubtful that Prenda expects too many people to actually go read the article. They just want the basic "be afraid, settle now!" message to get through.
We redirected the URL referenced by Prenda to a page with information about these mass-BitTorrent lawsuits.
So, instead of being scared by an article about a $1.5 million judgment, Internet bill payers can inform themselves about the steps they can take to respond to the settlement letter.
The page in question explains that increasingly judges are condemning the practices of copyright trolls, and that many mass lawsuits have been thrown out. Just recently a judge designated Prenda's ways as a “bad faith effort,” and dismissed one of their mass-BitTorrent lawsuits.
In addition to some much-needed balance we also included links to attorneys who are familiar with these lawsuits, plus links to other useful resources.
