Good article pertaining to the asshats at Prenda Law, which directly relates to the court decision concerning Matthew Chan.


Yesterday, we filed a motion to quash a subpoena seeking the identity of the blogger behind Die Troll Die, a website dedicated to “News and Views Involving Copyright Trolls & John/Jane Does.”

For years, Die Troll Die has been covering news about Prenda Law and its predecessor Steele Hansmeier PLLC, amoung many others. Prenda Law is a porn troll.  This means that it looks for IP addresses that allegedly downloaded adult films via BitTorrent, seeks to subpoena the ISP for the contact information of the account holder associated with that IP address, and then threatens to name the alleged infringer in a copyright lawsuit, right next to the embarrassing title of a pornographic film. Or just settle, for thousands of dollars.

Most questions have already been addressed in the forums, get yourself educated before making decisions.

Any advice is strictly that, and anything I may state is based on my opinions, and observations.

Gotta love the highlights:

Die Troll Die has a Constitutional right to speak its mind, and give its opinion, however negative, of Prenda Law. Courts protect that right by requiring litigants to show they have a good case before unveiling critics. This, Prenda Law does not have.

As we explain in the brief, Prenda Law’s claims are meritless. It is opinion, not defamation, to call someone an “a$$hat” or call their business model “repulsive,” and it's flat out ridiculous to claim that the Prenda Law (a corporation) has been libeled by allegations of fornication and adultery.

Just wait until Prenda Law's wife hears about the adultery, files for divorce and asked for alimony!!!

    • Yeah, We Do That.
Great find Robert and great article.  I think there is a lot there that could apply for Matthew as well in regards to freedom of speech.
Every situation is unique, any advice or opinions I offer are given for your consideration only. You must decide what is best for you and your particular situation. I am not a lawyer and do not offer legal advice.
