Canada
« on: September 20, 2018, 09:20:04 PM »
I have received a letter from higbee for a company website that has an address in the states and hosted in the states.
I live in Canada has anyone seen these guys go after people outside of the country is it even possible?
Has anyone seen them subpoena a hosting company to get the information of the person who signed up for the hosting company?
If they were asking for less i might just pay them but 5k+ is stupid for one stupid looking image from google free commons.
Thanks for the great forum.

Don't know any other answers, but I hear they start high and then the longer it goes on the more they'll go down. For me it's a really ridiculous 20k, which is nowhere near anything I could ever realistically pay. I haven't gone through the whole process yet.

It costs very little to send threatening letters in hopes that legally ignorant people will blindly believe.

I tend to believe almost anything is possible IF someone has the drive and desire to pursue another party. But is it likely in small-timer cases? I don't think so.

I'm a non-lawyer but not legally ignorant either. Under the 1st Amendment, I have the right to post facts & opinions using rhetorical hyperbole, colloquialisms, metaphors, parody, snark, or epithets. Under Section 230 of CDA, I'm only responsible for posts I write, not what others write.
