If I had a company in Sylmar, California selling "The Garden Pickle" and I advertise on WREX 13 in Rockford, Illinois, I do not have to collect sales tax from sales generated in that state. If, however, I were to advertise on www.wrex.com where they would be an affiliate to my sales website of www.theamazinggadenpickele.com, prior to this ruling, I would have to pay the state sales tax. Thus, there was, in fact, discrimination based on the media type so the majority of the court was correct and the dissent was incorrect.
Seems that he filed an affidavit with the court where he declares under penalty of perjury that he had never used such software or was involved in the seeding of files.
Actually, the arguments he uses to say he was not seeding files at all would be the same arguments that the respondents (read victims) to his suits would also use.
I wish I could eat my cake and have it too. Why isn't this joker in jail facing perjury charges based on his Chi Tribune statements and signed affidavit? Or if we are to believe his affidavit on its face, why is he not facing sanctions for filing suits he does not believe can hold up in the first place?
