Somebody sue this lawyer for lying.

A lawyer that "reduces" a fee. What an laugh.

How about the fact they are way over paid in the first place.

Somehow magically retainers always equal work done.

This is all about gaming the system.

These hypocrits should be sued for false advertisment, ie, the justice system.

Not too mention sueing the music industry for promoting theft in their songs.

gesh, what a bunch of self-righteous legal twisting.

Seen any lemonade stands this guy can shut down?

We do not have a justice system in the U.S.  We never have.  We have a legal system.  The two are vastly different.  Accept this and change your expectations.  You will be much less frustrated.

Ouch - that is how "legal" systems end up coming for you.

You will only be able to relax so long to the swat team tatics and the vast over-reaching "legal" system that has taken all of your freedoms.

But hey relax no one ever innocent goes to jail or will have to pay a "lawyer" for being a bully with the law.

Of course to steal music is wrong, but how dare others attempt to take the moral high ground.

First they came for the communists,
and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a communist.

Then they came for the trade unionists,
and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a trade unionist.

Then they came for the Jews,
and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a Jew.

Then they came for me
and there was no one left to speak out for me.

This is so fabulous... the last time I checked any number of sources, Copyrights and patents and trademarks were all issued by the federal government. Meaning only a federal court has jurisdiction for ANY of this, strict legality on file sharing aside.

But, these slimeballs get around all that by saying "we're not asking you to rule on the copyright, but merely on the off chance that there is SOMETHING illegal going on SOMEWHERE, SOMEHOW." And then sending out Cease and Deist letters that no mere mortal can do jack scite about because, hey, we can't all afford to keep a $700-per-hour lawyer on retainer even if we've done nothing more illegal than having an unsecured wireless network. so it's "pay up or die" with nothing but some legal blackmail.

Sooner or later, anyone who looks at a RickRoll on Yourtube will be declared to have stolen someone's Intelectual property and sued into abject poverty, just because a lawyer can do it.

God Bless America.

Pirating is good sometimes. Such as PIRATING MW3 WHEN IT COMES OUT BECAUSE ACTIVISION DOES NOT DESERVE OUR MONEY!! True that.

Besides, as long as you buy it later on, I don't see what's the issue with pirating. I know friends who are pretty poor and can't afford a descent gaming computer. That's why they have to rely on torrented games until they get the money.

Man... Why use Torrents? There are more sneakier ways to download a file without using a torrent. BY sneaky, I mean going to legit sites and just ripping the content for yourself. The only thing good I see out of torrent is to be able to download games with the DRM already cracked... But for simple things like music and movies... Which seems to be the ones in the courtrooms anyways, I would just recommend ripping them off of legitimate websites and not have your information tracked. Expecially those Russian sites, they work wonders. You just have to know some of the language to get through. As for these lawsuits, it hurts everybody financially. The cost of litigation continues to rise... These are just greedy capitalists that want you to suffer, even if it hurts them too. Proving they are self-destructive.

Considering the fact that the statement in your macro IS an argument, your an idiot. Macros are for stupid woads who cant think of anything to say because their stupid.

This communist moron is a bitch and she needs to be told so regardless of the venue. So piss off.

I don't like Holly and her wacky (perhaps an understatement) opinons, but she didn't even mention communism in her post. I may think she's acting stupid, but you're just being a bully.

avatar

Carlidan

Dude you really need a chill pill. Just because you don't agree with her position doesn't mean she's a communist.  Name calling doesn't get your message out. It just makes your juvinelle.

avatar

Ghok

She's a self described communist. Lots of users like to bash her for this.

roger that.

Is bittorrent legal or not? If it's illegal the sites would have been shutdown. They haven't. The fact is bittorrent is NOT copyright infringement, deal with it.

Sure, it's all about stopping piracy, isn't it Mr.Randazza??? It's NOT about the money. Afterall, we all know how much the entertainment industry is hurting right now and we all know what percentage of any settlements the lawyers get.
