    The domain is actually appropriate for the best possible kick in the face: turn it into an anti-SOPA site.

    It can represent a safe haven for the rights of Internet users to free speech and fourth-amendment protection of their domains.

    I hope employeers keep a list of these guys names so that they can reference incoming candidates against it– you wouldn’t want to hire the kind of jerk that targets the weak & STILL can’t even win their case.  “We support injustice, & big industries going after defenseless people!  We uh, we suck at it though, we are the worst.”

    Dear God:  Thank you for making it so that when I go to, I see a giant coupon for GoDaddy. Consolidated targets are much appreciated.

    Came here to say this. The lawyers working at Righthaven should be shamed. Their names should be publicized if they’re not already.

    It not enough.  Name and shame all who worked for them.

    Then bring out the hot tar and feathers.

    It is helpful to remember while Marc Randazza is this huge free speech advocate, he is also a copyright troll.  He threatens to out people or tell their neighbors they watch gay porn to try and get money from people who might have not actually done the alleged infringement.  He put forward the idea that if you pay for the bill your responsible for everything that happens on the connection even if someone hacks in.  He has told targets in letters to not even bother to try and challenge his filings in court because he will make sure their victory is short lived.  I thought making sure things were done legally was a cornerstone of the legal system.

    So I think the best use of this would be to make a central clearing house for the thousands of people still being pursued by these copyright trolls…  I mean it just came out that one of the trolls was abusing the law and getting information on people never named in the lawsuits.

  7. The sole remedy left is that the Nevada bar assoc if they had any guts would proceed with disbarrment. The principals should not be permitted to practice law. Period.

    Most excellent news. To borrow from “Tale of Two Cities,”  “Drive them fast to their tomb.”
