Please Email the SD Sec of State – Crystal Bay Corporation (CBC) – Revoke/Dismiss Status

Hello all!

CBC1Want to do something to help?  In case you missed it, the technical monitoring company Copyright Troll Shelf Company, Crystal Bay Corporation (CDC), used by a few of the non-porn trolls, went into delinquent status at the end of March 2013.  This was most likely due to not filing the annual report, taxes, and any associated fees.  SD Corporate database   Search Sites in the US

CBC is a SD “Shelf” corporation used by Trolls such as Lynn Peak Productions/Bailout: The Age of Greed and Bad Kids Go To Hell.    CBC Tag at DTD.

I looked on the SD Secretary of State Web site and it states companies have 60 days to correct this or the company will be admin revoked or dissolved.  As this cut-off date was 31 May 2013, the time has passed!

Myself and others have emailed the SD Secretary of State office requesting they place CBC in a revoked/dismissed status.   email address –

I don’t know how busy the SD Secretary of State office is, but we may get more traction if more people email them.  If the SD Secretary of State will do this, it could kill many of the cases that are still pending in the US.  Note: I haven’t seen CBC used in any recent filings, so I expect the Trolls may be moving to a “new” dummy corporation.  Even if they do this, the stink of the this dummy corporation will follow them and taint their cases.  Please keep an eye out and email anything you find.  Please feel free to email them and lend a hand.

I’m emailing you concerning a Delinquent SD corporation, Crystal Bay Corporation (CBC), DB056782, Incorp date 3/28/2012.

Per your Web site, delinquent SD corporations have 60 days to file or they will be administratively dissolved or revoked by the Secretary of State.  As the 60-day grace period for CBC expired on 31 May 2013, I respectfully request that CBC be administratively dissolved or revoked by the Secretary of State.

Thank you for your assistance in this matter.

    Isn’t Lynn Peak the same outfit that filed the case in Colorado on behalf of the movie Assault on Wall Street? So are they using the same shelf corporation that is mentioned in your comments above? If so what effect would this have on the case in Colorado?

    • DieTrollDie says:

      Yes. It is the same one. Lynn Peak Productions – Assault on Wall street & Bailout: The Age of Greed. As far as the CO cases, If I was a Doe in these cases, I would send the court notice of this. I would also consider sending notice to the various ISP legal departments informing them that the company the Troll used to get early discovery granted is in delinquent status – hopefully revoked status soon.

    I am sorry to say that this is unlikely to assist defendants in any way. Even if they miss the deadline, administrative dissolution is pretty easy to fix. They might have to pay a small fee.

    More to the point, why should it make any difference to a judge that that a company, not a party to the lawsuit, missed a filing deadline?

    By the way, I’m an attorney who represents a Doe defendant in a TCYK case. I WISH it made a difference, but without more it doesn’t.

    • DieTrollDie says:

      Wes, it might not do anything, but it could. Doing nothing will definitely get you nothing.

      Why? Because a court may see that this third-party is actually tied to the Plaintiff and they are gaming the system. What if a judge decides to tell Plaintiff they have to disclose background information on CBC and Darren Griffin? More info for us and if it causes them some pain and costs – good.

    Hello, everyone.
    Thanks to this article, I’ve found out a bit more about CBC, Dakota Agent Services (CBC’s agent), and the low bar to form a corporation in South Dakota. As a South Dakota resident, this is definitely something which I will start asking my representatives about as well.

  7. Done. Kudos for not only the heads up and the proactive article, but including the sample letter as well. 🙂 That’s the way to do it.
