Was his original DMCA complaint even valid or was he pulling a Grace Saunders?
Idk the complaint states they are trademarked...but i cant tell exactly what was trade marked without further effort.
Getting a trademark is easy, whether it is protected is another argument.
Example would be King Kong. It was determined that was in the public domain when they sued nintendo for Dokey Kong.
yeah the original DMCA was to Sherrod not to us. His lawyer is mistaken and thinks we ran the site then, or he is lying.
We have gotten a lawyer, he is extremely good, is a correspondent for CNN, Fox News etc, but he is fucking expensive. We are setting up a crowdfunding page and will post it along with more details when it is finished.
I had no idea why people were getting all worked up over nothing until I realised I had Onideus as the sole resident of my ignore list.
Why ignore idiots, I just laugh at their stupidity.
This case is baseless you could probably represent yourself and have it dismissed. I have no legal training, but read the court document once and found about 5 different reasons for this case to be thrown out and can think of a couple more that I'm about 90% are valid.
Back when I put him on ignore he was shitting up threads so much that they consisted chiefly of his spam. At least Zew0 is creative and reasonable.
It is a lot more complicated than it looks. The guy has filed dozens of motions and I literally have no idea what I am doing. A famous lawyer (I'm not sure I can say who) hooked us up with an awesome lawyer. This is the safest course of action right now. It's not pro bono but he is going to help signal boost crowdfunding. Daily Stormer just crowdfunded 185k for their lawsuit and they are literal fucking Nazis lol, I think we will be ok.
PS before anyone says anything I don't see a dime of whatever is funded (I just signed documents agreeing to this), it all goes to the lawyer and the courts so don't think I am trying to cash in on this. I just want it to go away and have things go back to normal.
If you remove the content after getting the DMCA request how the fuck can they sue us. It's not like we said fuck off, retard and left the article or infringing content up.
Post the link and I'll give some jewgold to help the cause. I love watching autists arguing with each other about who is the biggest autist.
Literally just went up.
He didn't even send us a DMCA, he sent Sherrod a DMCA like 8 years ago and thought we were the same website I guess. We removed it as soon as we found out he wanted it removed, out of courtesy, without even receiving a DMCA.
What an asshole. I'll deposit some gold sometime tomorrow when I get on a real PC the funding site doesn't work well on my phone.
It's almost exactly as easy as it looks. Last time this guy tried to pull this stunt he ended up dropping the case after his lawyer was told they'll go after him for bringing bad faith claims to court. You don't need an expensive lawyer.
Well we need A lawyer and this is the only guy who is willing to work with us.
You are letting the terrorists win
Which I found highly suspicious...
Counter sue the dog shit out of that cock sucker for reputation damages
Also, yes to the goddamn lawyer... You bunch of cheap ass bitches
Anomymous government officials have informed me that the copyrighted material was planted by Russian hackers in collusion with the Trump administration
55 grand for a lawyer? Also why do we need a famous lawyer anyway?
If Oddguy is right at how bullshit this claim is, couldn't you just find some local lawyer to do this for like a tenth the cost?
With attorneys, you want the best. Fuck the price, counter-sue. ED is being attacked by a millionaire. Some $5k local attorney will drag this suit out and turn it into 50k over the course of a few years because they don't know what they're doing. He'll keep coming back. Get a good lawyer and put this dog to sleep. I'll be donating.
im impressed. i never thought anyone could be more pathetic than romeo rose, but seeing onideus in action has proven me wrong
I assume you contacted the EFF? If they helped defend Weev then they should be willing to help out ED.
I'm about to suggest something very unpopular but hear me out.
Maybe we should consider letting that attention whore Milo know ED is getting sued so he can get his followers to chip in. He has referenced ED before and he could be useful in drumming up support. I know he is self-promoting but fuck it, money is money and ED needs $50K of it.
I have no problem with Milo.
EFF said no.
Faggots. I guess they didn't like the "Niggers" page.
EFF are pussies, they're all about freedom until you say something offensive. then they're like
