Doe Defendant tells the Court of Compromised Network – Patrick Collins v. Does 1-2590 (3:11-CV-02766-MEJ) – Troll Siegel

Here is another set of documents recently filed in case # 3:11-CV-027666-MEJ, Patrick Collins v. Does 1-3590, Northern District of California (Ira Siegel).

The first document is a Motion for Protective Order from Steven D. Buchanan, of Phoenix, AZ (filed 22 Nov 2011).  As the motion was filed under true name, the court and Troll have the Doe’s information.  protective_Order_doe

The second document from Mr. Buchanan is more interesting.  It is a letter to the court stating that he has been working with Quest to secure his network after unknown personnel exploited access to it.  He attached multiple emails correspondence with Quest showing his effort to secure his network.  In a 28 Jan 11, email to Quest, he states

“… I was told by your support personnel that under no circumstances should I contact the copyright company as this would allow them to take legal action against me.” 

Well thank you Quest technician.  🙂 

The emails go on to tell the court the problem Mr. Buchanan had with the people who were abusing his Internet connection.  The interesting thing I noticed was that Mr. Buchanan actually received a DMCA “Take-Down” notice.  This is something you don’t see in most of these cases.  There were 22 notices of copyright infringement lodged against Mr. Buchanan’s IP address.  This is a logical step the copyright owner should do, but most Does will never get one. 

I hope Mr. Buchanan goes to the Phoenix press and gets it out in the open.  I would like to also know why the copyright owner sent take-down notices on this instance and not on a majority of others.  Do they also believe this a compromised network?  Not that they really care – Greedy Trolls.

    Maria Elena James is the only magistrate judge in the 9th circuit who routinely grants the troll’s discovery, even now after these cases started to get thrown out and/or severed for misjoinder in her district. A few of her cases she kicked up to district judges, who quashed her subpoena, so she is definitely aware of the precedents in her district and probably doesn’t care.

    Trolls are counting on her alone to pay their bills at this point, as without the possibility of their case being assigned to her so she can grant their application for discovery, they can save their $350 filing fee.

    Hopefully she hasn’t been paid off so richly that she can ignore this one.

    From what I’ve read elsewhere, CEG TEK sent these notices and filed some of these cases… So much for no cases coming from CEG TEK & Patrick Collins. 😦

      I know of no cases filed by CEG-TEK and the only Patrick Collins cases are from years ago. As RFC Express is no long working, it is hard to stay abreast of the new cases. If you have any information on a current changes, please share. I’m still of the opinion that copyright owners who use CEG-TEK or Rightscorp are not interested in filing real copyright infringement cases. There is bound to some exceptions (Rotten Records as an example). Overall I see nothing to indicate a change is happening.

      DTD 🙂
