Comcast court docs show Prenda copyright trolls seeded smut then sued
"Top copyright troll Prenda Law has been caught red-handed seeding torrenting sites with pornographic films in an effort to drum up business for its copyright lawyers.
The attorneys at Prenda Law specialize in firing out letters to internet users accusing them of pirating luridly-named pornography (Alexis Texas sucks and fucks at a porn show is unsubtle even by the adult industry's standards) and threatening a very public legal case unless they cough up a few thousand dollars in compensation for their alleged crimes.
These kinds of practices have already inspired one California judge to deliver an epic Star Trek-themed smackdown to Prenda Law and fine them $81,000 (and additional charges for late payment). But the firm, which operates under a host of associate companies across the US, is still litigating – but a new court document in a separate case is going to cause it major problems.""
You know it is the right thing to do.
