Prenda's Paul Duffy Claims To Be 'Too Devastated' By Nelson Mandela's Death To Comment
from the wtf dept
But the really incredible part in this is that when reporter Joe Mullin, from Ars Technica, reached out to Prenda's Paul Duffy to comment on whether or not Prenda had paid up the fees, Duffy responded in the most bizarre way possible:
I hope you are doing well. I am devastated by the loss of Nelson Mandela and I hope you join with President Obama in remembering his legacy. He ranks with Mohandes Ghandi, Dr. King and President Kennedy in the struggle for human rights over the past 50 years. There are larger issues than the ability to steal porn... You seem like a nice guy. Thanks.Yes, the copyright porn trolling lawyer, whose firm has been implicated in setting up bogus honeypots to shake people down, in forging signatures and in efforts to publicly embarrass people (oh, and whose wife more or less admitted that her husband was engaged in interstate extortion) is now claiming that he's "devastated" by the loss of Mandela, and talking about "the struggle for human rights." That's a laugh. I'd guess he's a bit more devastated about the hundreds of thousands of dollars he's on the hook for and the criminal and tax evasion charges he may be facing before very long.
