In recent months we've seen growing judicial skepticism of mass copyright lawsuits. Many judges have concluded that plaintiffs—often pornography publishers—have no interest in actually litigating cases and instead hope to use the threat of ruinous legal bills (not to mention the embarrassment of public association with pornography) to extract four-figure cash settlements from defendants. This strategy has the advantage, from the plaintiffs' point of view, that the innocent have almost as much incentive to settle their cases as do the guilty.

But the judiciary is far from unanimous. And this week, one judge sided squarely with the porn plaintiffs—again.

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.
