Cases of Interest

stu1What I’m going to try to do here is list out some of the more interesting copyright infringement cases and the associated RECAPed dockets.  [Work in progress]  If you think there is a case that should be added, please comment or send an email to along with your thoughts.

    I would like some information on upcoming court cases regarding John Lawrence Steele.

    • DieTrollDie says:

      Still in the very early stages, as far as the bar complaint against him. “John L. Steele was charged with eight counts of fraud, dishonesty and improper use of the courts system in a complaint made public Friday by the Attorney Registration and Disciplinary Commission. He could lose his law license if found guilty.” As far as the other cases, he and Prenda Law are facing various sanctions and they just lost the case against Cooper. That means they will have to pay the attorney fees/costs, as well as face some sort of punitive damages. The exact damages will not be out for at least a month – probably more.

    Hey DTD

    So while back I was getting calls and lettering from Right Corps about downloading illegal music. After read through your website and with some advice from you I did not pay and I ignored the phone calls and letter.

    Well I got this letter in the mail today, saying rightcorps was sued for 450K and that they are contacting me to claim my part of the settlement. I have not done anything of course yet, but do you think this is legitimate or another scam by right corps, if you need to me email you the letter I can
