the fact of the matter is even though this power is not meant for the general public there will be some hacker teen or something who finds a way to abuse this. people swore up and down for years the dcma proponents said it couldnt be abused on a large scale and then a 16 year old kid used it to take down four major store chains websites for laughs and now it's routinely being done
this is nothing more than one city's attempt to drum up money through fines by imprisoning non compliant business owners and then using the footage to fine people who litter, or commit other menial "lawbreaking". this is a fine example of a city drumming up more cash for the "poor impoverished" police department and city officials salary by fleecing citizens and tourists alike.

the only person who should be charged is Guthrie and Reilly, who began a criminal conspiracy to harass someone and deprive them of their rights as a citizen. this crime was furthermore exasperated by a frivolous complaint to the prosecutor resulting in someone being detained by the police.
meanwhile the offended party incited what amounts to a criminal conspiracy, harassment, false allegations of child molestation and a half dozen other SERIOUS charges. and if the prosecutor were to be asked why they weren't charged for these serious criminal acts, i bet the underlying implication was that they avoided arrest because they are women.
dreddsnik it helps you win a civil judgement. a criminal court case proves they did it to a higher standard than civil court requires. if they are found guilty in a criminal trial there will be a financial colostomy for not only prenda but every operation like it in the country
can you sue for infringement that has not occurred yet?
no, the court has time and time again affirmed you can not civilly sue for damages that have not happened. this is nothing more than their Kafkaesque attempt to intimate through lawyers and fee's much like how the mafia intimated store owners.
