Sometimes, standing your ground is worth it. Would Drew be able to sleep afterwards had he crumbled in front of his wife. He did the best thing he could under the circumstances. How do you move on and stay sane when some anonymous group legally steals your livelyhood from you.
All these companies would be smart to pool together and attack the patent trolls like a union. That's not going to happen, but if they polled their experiences together (e.g. a forum of some kind), they would be more effective in protecting themselves. Just a thought and I'm sure THIS forum will have better.
Sorry to anyone who thinks Rakofsky is a failed lawyer, but he is in fact the finest and most open example of justice today. You're not seeing the larger picture here folks. This man is the quintessential archetype of American modern justice. This is a man who has learned from his forebearers how to achieve his goals. Rakofsky is a prime example of a modern lawyer, one who exemplifies the successes of today. You cannot read this forum and tell me that you have not seen the enduring examples that have paved this man's way.
I pray that these lawsuits go to trial, as should we all. Then maybe, just maybe, the world can see what we are. /s
Thank you and good night.
I believe you nailed it. In order for Viacom to protect themselves in this lawsuit, they have to defend Brownmark. Otherwise they lose all standing in their harrasements of YouTube. Brownmark has put them in a Catch 22. I believe they knows the lawsuit is bogus and are only doing it to hurt companies [like Viacom] that use their muscle on others.
