I don't know about anyone else, but I'm having a helluva time keeping up with who is who and from they come. So I've created a running list or "scorecard" if you will of all of the players. I'm sure I've left some out, and I'll gladly add them to the list...I'm sure more will come out of the woodwork over time as well..Please feel free to submit any additions or let me know of any corrections.

Hawaiian Art Network takes grand prize for rolling through the most attorneys thus far, but have no fear photoattorney.com Carolyn Wright's office is quickly gaining ground!

Getty images continues to stand by their "man" Timothy B. McCormack "The Copyright Cow" , but we have recently recieved a much "tamer and sanitized letter from a new lawyer Daniel M. Wadkins from  Lee & Hayes pllc

John E. Grant gets honorable mention, as he knows how to get around and has on record represented Corbis, Stock Food America, and Garden World Images.

Timmy is an Ace among Trolls! I love the choice of the Ace of Clubs too! Very fitting.

We need 3 more Aces! Bieker could definitely be one of them, Greg!

Interstingly, he's lasted almost 12 yrs with Getty Images, and used to work for a company called "Seed IP Law Group"

His words:  "I'm curious how events in life can alter (or re-shape) perceptions of what is really important..."

I don't know if Bieker rates an ace, he's just a hired goon, not sure if he's even worth a face card.  Save the good ones for people like Linda and Uncle Glen.

I saw BuddhaPi's list, which I like the idea of, didn't include my good friend Douglas. When the list is completed may I suggest a name BuddhaPi, how about "The Brown Pages - A Complete Troll Directory"

Timothy B. McCormack is not deserving of the ace, perhaps the joker, but not the ace!

Sounds like we need to get the "Copyright Troll House of Cards" in order! Keep the suggestion coming, people!

While not the most dangerous, I figured that Timmy is one of the most prolific.
He must have sent more letters that anyone.
Not much to back it up, though... it's like the WMD that Iraq was supposed to have.

I was thinking of Julie Stewart as "The Joker"... lol
