Yes, as many others say, expect them to appeal.
But I think the only thing they can appeal is the fee award. The referrals to the various bar associations, the DOJ, and the IRS, aren't court orders making somebody do something, so they can't be stopped. They're just notices to completely separate agencies about what's going on. If any/all of these other agencies decide to start their own investiagation/prosecution, they do it under their own power and not via this court order, so it can't be stopped by appealing this. Not to mention that
What's going on with the real Alan Cooper's lawsuit against Steele and company, or whoever it is? Couldn't he make that a criminal complaint of identity theft, probably with the FBI since the incorporation was based offshore?
..."in his case against Facebook, Zuckerberg looks to be (unsurprisingly) closer to falling apart completely after the court has decided that the extremely damning evidence of fraud can be discussed in the case."
Not to be a nit, and maybe I'm sleepy, but I got so hung up on the last sentence of this article, that I'm stuck in an infinite logical loop, and must retire...
Same here. If only he'd used "and" instead of a comma between Facebook and Zuckerberg.
While I can see Masnick's point of view, in that a tool provider shouldn't [normally] be liable for what it's users do with it, does it change the tool provider's liability if/when that tool is designed specifically to do nothing but spam and violate Twitter TOS? especially if they're circumventing the provided API
It's my understanding that CBS didn't block the entire show, but just blocked them from using an official, albeit unused, ST script.
The original author of this unused script liked the project so much, that he was even going to direct it for free. Nothing I read explained how CBS came to own the script he wrote, whether he sold it to them way back in the day or it was a work-for-hire.
He keeps digging himself deeper and deeper, and all the while he's dragging the actual controller company he's supposed to be repping down with him.
Has anyone tried to contact them? Who was it, N-Control? To see if they might decide to finally do some of their own damage control.
Randazza isn't arguing that.
The court ordered it.
Since they weren't paying any of the court ordered judgements already outstanding against them, the court ordered them to turn over any and all assets, including any IP, to receivership, to satisfy the outstanding judgements.
Randazza just following along with the continuing court cases, and trying to get the money the court already said it's owed.
Did they "admit defeat"? Or just lie their way out of it, like they tried to lie their way into it? Claim it was a "business decision" to pull out, or due to some vast government conspiracy, everybody's out to get them, or some such crap.
As for the $4 billion they have to pay DT, another article says that will really only cost them about $1.4 billion after a tax write off.
