Legal We've had a bit of a copyrightesque weekend here on OSNews, so it seems only fitting to end this Sunday with yet another story on this subject. This one isn't so much anger-inducing as much as it is what?-inducing - you'll either laugh or cry. It basically comes down to this: a smart lawyer is selling self-help packages to aid victims of the mass-P2P lawsuits in the US, and now the media companies behind those lawsuits are suing this lawyer... For causing them damage.

Is it possible that, where the forms are legally useable even if they're not useful in terms on a single person, the mass inclusion of the forms from the 1000s of 1000s of people who they are trying to sue, will create such a headache for them and also a huge drain on their funds that they will simply give up and drop charges? I only ask as the documents cost $20 and the court case including these documents are costing in excess of $5000 court costs yet the claim is only for $2500 in settlement. meaning for every one of these document cases they win, they also lose 100%.
That means, they're really just wasting time for everyone, and if they have just a 1000, not the 1000s of cases suggested, thats a lot of court time wasted, lot of money wasted...

Would be interested to see your thoughts on that... Power to the mass of people and all ;)
