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.

Show us. I am very curious to see some stats about how many have been filed and what the resulting rulings on them have been.

From TFA:

Although all the motions to quash and motions for protective order, whether filed by an attorney or filed by a pro se defendant, have been denied repeatedly by the judges, the motions to dismiss have not.

Defendants who filed a motion to dismiss for a lack of personal jurisdiction have been successful.

So we have one person saying they're working (though is vague whether the pro se motions to dismiss have been successful), and another, you, saying they aren't. Whom am I to believe without evidence?

E-mail me ( and I'll forward a copy of the case docket as it has progressed so far. The case is available online via PACER, but it costs money per page to see each page. I have already downloaded the entire case so I'd be happy to forward the document to you in its entirety. Perhaps I'll post it online and let you download it and read it on your own. I'll be back in the office later tonight to do so.

Do you realise how _bad_ these comments make you look?
"These forms aren't working!" So why did they lose at least 2 cases so far?
"I can do a better job! Hire me instead!" Yeah, because a lawyer that has time to make a ton of comments on the internet must be too good to get clients.

*series of adverts in 'signature'* ...yeah, that's real professional.

If you ever want to get another client, I'd back out now, dude.
