The four lawyers linked to the Prenda Law copyright-trolling organization were slapped with an $81,000 sanctions order, which as of today, they have missed the deadline to pay. They did make time to file a last-minute motion to delay the sanctions, which only got referred back to the judge who's angry at them in the first place: US District Judge Otis Wright.

Today Wright issued an order, predictably, denying the request by the Prenda crew for more time. The order https://cdn.arstechnica.net/wp-content/uploads/2013/05/Prenda.order_.164.pdf asks them to explain "why they have contravened the Court's order to pay the attorney's-fee award," which, to be precise, is $81,319.72. It also orders them to pay $1,000 "per day, per person or entity, until this attorney's-fee award is paid or a bond for the same amount is posted... Failure to comply will result in additional sanctions."

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.

    • Yeah, We Do That.
Awesome,  The courts have been getting tougher and tougher and these trolls.  I see why Getty doesn't like to sue, it could all unravel very quickly if they go after the wrong person who will fight back and show what is going on.

I have a lot of stuff I would give to the legal team if such a person (innocent infringer) were sued. 
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.
