  1. I am very impressed with your site. I appreciate the candid updates and the photos are great! Please keep up the good work. -Rob

    • We appreciate yours as well. Thank You.

  2. Great site and information. Thanks a million!!!

    • ;).

  3. Thanks for linking to my blog fightcopyrighttrolls.wordpress.com that covers predatory lawsuits by a troll Sperlein (IO Group, Inc.). Last things these scumbags want is publicity, so keep firing lightning strokes! (According to Wikipedia, “A Scandinavian folk belief that lightning frightens away troll … the lack of trolls … in modern Scandinavia is explained as a result of the “accuracy and efficiency of the lightning strokes”.)

    • No problem. It is sad to say we have not covered those cases in detail. There are so many them to keep up with.

    • cute analogy regarding lightning strokes. 🙂

  4. Here is a link to a news story on the Righthaven cases. “Federal judge rules copyright enforcer can’t sue” –

    ” federal judge in Nevada says a Las Vegas law firm targeting unauthorized content on the Internet cannot sue others over a news company’s copyrights.”


    • Anonofliberty,

      So any read on how this recent ruling affects other Troll cases? Thanks 🙂

      • That is up to any judges opinion like yours or ours.

  5. Hey, what happened to you guys? All of a sudden, silence…. The reason I ask is that I have been threatened with defamation suits many times with my web site’s content, but in reality, there is no defamation when you are merely reporting your understanding of what is merely public information. Please let me know all is okay. If you guys went on a summer vacation, probably a good idea to mention it somewhere on your website.

    • We are fine ;-D. Just organizing thoughts and responding to comments right now. We have much to post about it just takes to time to organize information and thought. Defamation suits… that is funny. They should be threatened for using extortion and fear like terrorists.

      • Exactly. Like terrorists 🙂 Let me know if I can help somehow. Not that I have lot of time – I employed full-time and more, but I’ll try.

        • Same, that is why it takes time to keep up with everything and post about it. Thanks.

  6. Square Enix is suing over an authorized user sharing a game preview of “Deus Ex: Human Revolution”:

    Square Enix limited v. John Does 1-15
    “On information and belief, one or more Defendants logged into the restricted
    Steam account hosting the Game Preview code by entering the username and password
    associated with the authorized GMC reviewer on or about May 29, 2011 from an IP address
    that was not associated with Sprea Editori or GMC.”

    Yet on the Square Enix website they claim if you submit unsolicited ideas or even copyrighted work they can do whatever they want with it and neither credit nor compensate you:


    You agree that: (1) Square Enix shall receive a perpetual, irrevocable, non-exclusive, worldwide license to use your unsolicited idea or copyrighted work for any purpose, without any compensation or credit to you; (2) there is no obligation for Square Enix to keep your unsolicited idea or copyrighted work confidential; and (3) Square Enix may act as your attorney-in-fact solely in order to document this transfer of rights.”

    • Ya :(. We will post about it soon.

  7. I don’t know where this comment would be best suited, or if it is relevant at all, but I am an attorney in IL, and I am following these internet troll cases… I just saw a job posting for the Steele Firm.

    Perhaps all of the readers here can work for him as a mole 🙂


  8. On Case: 1:10-cv-06254 (FTV v. 1-500 John Does), the Judge ruled on the defendant(s) motion to quash, dismiss, and attorney fees on 9 Aug 11. All were denied. 😦 Right after that order another defendant filed a motion to dismiss without prejudge because he was not served within the 120 days after Plaintiff filed the case in court. If the judge grants this, Plaintiff can still refile, but it will likely cost him more time and money. Looks like a good way to keep Plaintiff busy and maybe the court will see that improperly joining all these IP addresses/John Does will be be a pain in the butt for them also 😉

  9. 1:10-cv-06254 has had all but 8 remaining Does dismissed, as of yesterday (2011-09-28). It seems as though Steele still wants to go after those 8, since they filed motions to quash. Is that just out of spite, or is it some sort of procedural move? IANAL, so I have no idea.

  10. Could you please give locations for where the troll lawyers live?
