Mass Copyright Infringement Lawsuit Defense
By Elliot Zimmerman on Sunday, January 06, 2013 - 06:47 AM
CyberLaw

Are you a potential defendant in a mass copyright infringement action?

Record and film companies continue the practice of filing mass copyright infringement lawsuits lumping thousands of defendants together, namimg each defendant "John Doe" or "Jane Doe" or "Does 1-2500." Courts issue subpoenas to these defendants' cable or internet provider to give up their identity. In turn, the cable or other internet provider sends each potentital defendant a letter stating that their IP address has been identified in the downloading of a controlled work (film or mp3) threatening to reveal their identity unless the potential defendant files a motion to quash in the issuing court.

Often, the download contains pornographic material, and the potential defendant would be embarrased if his or her identity is revealed.

Pembroke Pines, FL. In Katherine Evans v.

Toronto Radio Podcast on Cyberbullying
By Elliot Zimmerman on Wednesday, December 16, 2009 - 12:00 AM
CyberLaw
Toronto Radio NewsTalk 1010 host Jamie Hofing interviewed Elliot Zimmerman on Dec. 16, 2009 regarding whether students have a right to be mean online. A recent LA Times article reported that a Beverly Hills school suspended an 8th grade student who posted a video on YouTube with several other students calling yet another student "spoiled," a "brat," and a "slut." Read the article here.


The suspended student took the case to federal court, saying her free speech rights had been violated. See J.C. v. Beverly Hills Unified School District, Case No. 08-cv-03824, California, U.S. District Court (2009). Last month, U.S. District Court Judge Stephen V. Wilson sided with her. "To allow the school to cast this wide a net and suspend a student simply because another student takes offense to their speech, without any evidence that such speech caused a substantial disruption of the school's activities, runs afoul of the law," wrote Judge Wilson in a 60 page opinion.

Embedded Metadata Subject to Discovery
By Elliot Zimmerman on Friday, October 30, 2009 - 09:40 AM
CyberLaw
The Arizona Supreme Court ruled on Thursday, October 29, 2009, in Lake vs. City of Phoenix, CV-09-0036-PR that:

Arizona law provides that “[p]ublic records and other matters in the custody of any officer shall be open to inspection by any person at all times during office hours.” Ariz. Rev. Stat. (“A.R.S.”) § 39-121 (2001). The City of Phoenix denied a public records request for metadata in the electronic version of a public record. We today hold that if a public entity maintains a public record in an electronic format, then the electronic version, including any embedded metadata, is subject to disclosure under our public records laws.

Kaleidescape Ruling Overturned
By Elliot Zimmerman on Thursday, August 13, 2009 - 09:37 AM
CyberLaw
On August 12, 2009, just one day after Judge Marilyn Hall Patel ruled against RealNetworks, Inc. and RealNetWorks Home Entertainment, Inc. ("RealNetworks") granting DVD Copy Control Association, Inc. ("DVD CCA") and several motion picture studios a preliminary injunction that prevents RealNetworks from selling or licensing its RealDVD software [RealNetworks, Inc. et al. v. DVD CCA et al., Case No. C 08-04548 MHP (N.D. Ca. 2008)], the California Court of Appeals for the Sixth Appellate District (Santa Clara) overturned a trial court's finding that Kaleidescape, Inc.'s DVD copy product did not violate its DVD CCA contract. Click here to see the Order in DVD CCA v. Kaleidescape, Inc., Case No. H031631 (Santa Clara County Super. Ct. No. CV031829). The appellate court remanded the case for trial.

No Attorneys Fees For Dismissal Of Copyright Case
By Elliot Zimmerman on Sunday, August 09, 2009 - 09:34 AM
CyberLaw
In Cadkin v. Loose, 569 F.3d 1142 (9th Cir. 2009), the Ninth Circuit held that a voluntary dismissal without prejudice does not confer prevailing party status for a claim brought under the Copyright Act. Accordingly, Defendant was not entitled to attorneys' fees under Section 505 of the Copyright Act which provides that the court may, in its discretion, award full costs, including reasonable attorneys’ fees, to the prevailing party in a claim arising under the Copyright Act. 17 U.S.C. § 505. The Court overruled Corcoran v. Columbia Broadcasting System, Inc., 121 F.2d 575, 576 (9th Cir. 1941) in light of Buckhannon Bd. & Care Home, Inc. v. W. Va. Dep’t of Health & Human Res., 532 U.S. 598, because “prevailing party” status turns on whether there has been a “material alteration of the legal relationship of the parties.” In Oscar v. Alaska Dep’t of Educ. & Early Dev., 541 F.3d 978, 981 (9th Cir. 2008), the Ninth Circuit recently held that a dismissal without prejudice does not alter the legal relationship of the parties in a similar fee shifting statute.

CyberLaw
In the retrial of RIAA v. Thomas, the Defendant was found guilty of willful infringement of copyright in the amount of $1.92M by a jury in a Minnesota federal court. This exceeded the first judgment by $1.7M. Obviously, two times is not a charm.

Intel v. Psion Suit for Netbook Trademark Settled
By Elliot Zimmerman on Monday, June 01, 2009 - 09:20 AM
CyberLaw
On June 1, 2009, Psion stated that it and Intel had "settled the trademark cancellation and infringement litigation brought in the Northern District of California relating to the 'Netbook' trademark registration. The litigation has been settled through an amicable agreement under which Psion will voluntarily withdraw all of its trademark registrations for 'Netbook.' Neither party accepted any liability. In light of this amicable agreement, Psion has agreed to waive all its rights against third parties in respect of past, current or future use of the 'Netbook' term."
