DieTrollDie Podcast (2016-05) – “Don’t Be A Stain” – CEG-TEK/Rightscorp and Troll Lipscomb/X-Art





Hello everyone!  The world of BitTorrent (BT) Copyright Trolls is a busy one.  I’m sorry to say I have a hard time keeping up with all the scams, rulings, and other douche-bag moves the Trolls and their supporters keep making.  I apologize for the delay in getting this up, but the information is still good in my opinion.

For this DieTrollDie podcast, I have split it up into two separate recordings.  First one is in response to an increase in questions I recently received from people receiving settlement demand letters from CEG-TEK or Rightscorp.  The second audio file is a discussion concerning Troll Lipscomb/Malibu Media/X-Art attempt to dismiss the case against David Ricupero, 2:14-cv-00821 (SDOH).  Archive Docket  Def_OppositionDismiss_Doc80_00821(OH)

Troll Lipscomb/Malibu Media v. Ricupero


After more than a year of motion practice and discovery, Plaintiff Malibu Media seeks dismissal of this action without condition pursuant to Fed.R.Civ.P. 41(a)(2). Malibu is moving to dismiss “because proceeding with this case is not economically justified,” i.e. the Defendant David Ricupero is broke. Plaintiff’s Motion to Dismiss, pp. 9, 13 (hereinafter “Motion to Dismiss”). Malibu’s position is disingenuous. Malibu was advised early and often that their claims were baseless [See e.g. Doc. 7]; that Ricupero had evidence of his innocence [See e.g. Doc. 70]; and that Ricupero, like most individuals, was of limited financial means [See e.g. Doc. 58 p. 10]. Ricupero specifically rebutted, under oath, Malibu’s allegations of infringement. Moreover, Ricupero has expended significant resources. Malibu’ explanation for needing to take a non-suit is inaccurate, as evidenced by Defendant’s Motion for Default Judgment [Doc. 78] and Defendant’s Motion for Summary Judgment [Doc. 79] showing that Malibu sought non-suit only after: failing to comply with the Court’s October 26, 2015 discovery order; completing their discovery of Ricupero; knowing a summary judgment motion was forthcoming [See e.g. Doc. 78 p. 4; Doc. 78-24 p. 4].

I expect the judge in this case is going to take his time and make sure there is no wiggle room for the Troll weasel its way out of this on appeal. Oh, I’m sure there will be an appeal. Troll Lipscomb is too far into the greed to stop now.

Last Note: I also wanted to point out that for the people affected by Dallas Buyers Club, Cobbler Nevada, or other Voltage pictures Trolls, please take a read of attorney John Whitaker’s article entitled, “Dallas Buyers Club & Cobbler Nevada: Sample Pro Se Answer.

It gives some very good insight into why this particular Troll is sending out “waiver of Service” form and why you may want to sign it.  Each case is different in my opinion, so please do your research prior to decided to sign or not to sign.  We have seen previous Trolls attempt to use this form to force settlements with only limited success.

“The mind can go either direction under stress—toward positive or toward negative: on or off. Think of it as a spectrum whose extremes are unconsciousness at the negative end and hyperconsciousness at the positive end. The way the mind will lean under stress is strongly influenced by training.” {Dune, Frank Herbert}
