Someone want to setup a Google News Alert for the obituary of Mark Lutz? Not only was he an employee, but he was a client, cog, and lets face it they kept him around as a patsy to blame. Its very hard for the dead guys to defend themselves and they can be offered up to provide doubt.
If hes paying for the "EMAIL" creators case, perhaps someone in his inner circle needs to point out hes gone off the cliff.
On the upside, all of this insanity he is funding will eventually open a door for someone to sue him for something as ridiculous. He will decry it and claim how wrong it is... ignoring that he created the atmosphere where it thrived.
But Uverse is the bestest thing since sliced bread. It lets us shut down our POTS system, because we got several states to agree to allow us to do that if POTS numbers dropped we can exit providing POTS. We don't need that sort of oversight of our crappy service, we need our next generation fiber network, still delivered on the same aging copper we've been let rotting to drive people off of it.
So what if poor people can't afford our service. So what if our service fails in a power outage, consumers can spend money to buy their own backup battery. So what if our 911 implementation is still screwed up & might give wrong information. They can get our spotty last gen prepaid phones and pay out the nose for access that we nickel and dime away.
Shitty company makes things shitter to drive profits because what they looted from for the USF just wasn't enough.
And the fact that they've never bothered to enforce these overly broad patents before now? If they are so far on the side of the angels, wouldn't they have acted sooner? If you found someone infringing on your patents would you wait 20 years to file?
And Google is merely fighting back, they aren't the only company targeted.
You almost are a decent shill, but stop pretending that what they claim today was something they created. They wedged a patent to fit something thats been around for a very long time and then had the gall to try block the import of devices to leverage faster settlements. They are trolls no matter what you want to claim.
Perhaps the gag order was the easiest way to avoid the vindictive nature of the system. They 'accidentally' issued arrest warrants, they have the power to accidentally to lots of things to make the reporters miserable and as we have seen time and time again the system is loath to accept that cogs of that system are guilty of this type of petty behavior and punish it.
What is extra galling is following standard boiler plate filings, they tell the court the account holder is the person who did it... and then say oh well swear you are innocent and throw someone else under the bus.
So an innocent person can swear they are innocent, and then are required to give them a new target to go after despite the claims made that the accused is the infringer.
Given the pattern in these cases, it should finally be clear that these are nothing but $400 fishing trips to reel in thousands. The system works against the accused, and the courts seem overly generous with the leeway the lawyers are given, while making sure the accused is held to higher standards.
The system is weighted against the accused, and makes just paying them the easy way to end the suffering. Even if you jump through every hoop, disprove every claim... the trolls slink away to avoid having to pay for making an innocent person defend themselves against baseless accusations.
They are supposed to only recover so much per work, and they rake in many times that amount with settlements made outside of the purview of the courts and keep going for more because no one has the will to stop these legal shakedown operations.
They think they can force the entire world to not mention the corruption. They think cracking down on citizens wondering why they don't have basic needs met while those in power roll around on Rolls Royce's.
Perhaps it is time for those civil citizens to stop being so civil, it is clear that the powers that be have very much they would like to hide. The halls of power need to be power washed clean, and the courts need to be full of these former leaders facing punishment for their crimes.
Dude might be a pedo, might not be. Right now he is only accused of a crime, supported by the thinnest of "evidence" & hunches.
If he doesn't get fair treatment from the court, what can anyone else expect? The All Writs Act is a magic tool that can do anything, even circumvent a citizens rights. The only "witness" can't even say what she actually saw, or on what device... and on the basis of this he sits in jail.
But we can't go forward unless he hands us the evidence we think is on these devices, so lock him away from the world and force him to do this.
It is amazing that with no actual evidence beyond someone who has animosity towards the defendant and an expert who is offering a hunch rather than actual evidence are all it takes.
But I guess because the alleged crimes are so heinous, we can bed the law & bedrock of the nation to get to where we need to be... I mean he has to be a bad man... this woman who dislikes him and an 'expert' playing a hunch is enough.
