New Trolling Tatic?
« on: June 19, 2012, 11:56:45 PM »
It looks like we have a new trolling tactic; at least it is the first time I have seen it.  CLG Group troll Mike Meier (good name for a troll) sent a package in the mail to a potential Doe.  The package arrived addressed to the Does real name with a cover sheet saying we are getting ready to file the attached suit but if you want to settle before it goes to court pass it to your attorney or contact us and we’ll discuss it with you.  Along with the cover sheet there is an infringement suit with the Does name on it but no district court listed or case number. Another issue is how Meier got the Does name as it is assumed this is an IP address case and the Doe has received no notification from his ISP of any request for his information.

Interesting posting...
Sounds a bit like Masterfile; they'd send a lawsuit "mockup" with a crappy photocopy of the court seal on it and everything.
I think that they've put all their eggs on one basket for now, though.
