    typo – Prena Law
    But then I thought their whole name was a typo, I call them Pretenda Law.  (They only pretend to practice the law)

    But lets call them who they really are John Steele and Co.  Crappy divorce lawyer gone copyright troll who is having several of his cases detonate on the docket as we speak.  Seems suing people for copyright violations when your client does not and could not own those copyrights might not sit well with the courts.  I think that might be called fraud, but I’m not a lawyer… just smarter than the average copyright troll.

    On another note if you find yourself targeted by these or any other Copyright Troll (there are so many) I suggest some very good resources to get educated.

    http://fightcopyrighttrolls.com  run by the always lovely Sophisticated Jane Doe.
    http://dietrolldie.com  run by, shockingly enough, DieTrollDie.

    These 2 blogs are by no means the end all be all for information, but damn close.  There is a large community of people targeted by these trolls and there is much information and support available.  They even let me hang out there and post, so they have to be good.

    I’m TAC and I approve this message.

    “demanding money not to permanently associate their names with porn by naming them in lawsuits”

    Except they put peoples names on their website multiple times, sometimes before there was a case naming them.
    You’d think the bar, courts, ethical oversight type might have a problem with that…  but funny no one has said anything about it.  Saying they are a defendant might be okies, but flat out calling people infringers based on the evidence provided by someone who gets money based on the number of settlements seems ripe for abuse.
