Copyright Trolls So Sloppy They Sue The Same Guy Multiple Times

from the i'm-sure-tat's-effective dept

In yet another copyright trolling case, it appears that the trolls are so sloppy that they're suing over the same IP address for sharing the same file (the animated movie, Zambezia) in multiple cases. The story focuses on one guy, who has filed a motion to quash in response, noting that the sloppiness of filing three times raises significant questions about the trolling operation. Either they're incredibly sloppy and not very careful, or they're hoping that by repeating the same IP address in multiple lawsuits, at least one judge will let the subpoena go through, leading to the inevitable demand letter. Either way, it should raise some eyebrows from the court about why anyone would file against the same IP address for the same movie in three different cases.

    Blue is a loon, it ain't gonna happen. Just out of interest, I'd like to know what got this started. I've read some of her rantings and she seems obsessed with Reds under the bed, etc., which is why she hassles us.

    Basically, we're seen as some kind of Commie/Socialist sympathisers so we're a threat that must be crushed.

    By trolling on a tech website, though? Good luck with that. Mind you, the fact that she keeps getting owned helps to fuel that sense of victimization she seems to have.

    Maybe there's something on the DSM that can explain what's going on with her. Damned if I know.
