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.

    The MPAA doesn't want to put popcorn industry out of business. They just want all of the profits from when people eat popcorn while watching movies. And since you really can't tell which popcorn is being while watching movies the only logical solution is to give the MPAA all of the profits from the popcorn industry. Besides, some of those people eating popcorn while not watching movies are probably drug users with the munchies; taking the money associated with illegal drugs is a service that the MPAA is willing to provide. But if the popcorn industry isn't profitable, don't blame the MPAA. It's the pirates' fault.
