A story about attorney Sanjin Mutić, “Mom’s Black Cock Anal Nightmare 2,” and hypocrisy

Copyright troll of the week

Recently I wrote about a copyright infringement monetization outfit “Copyright Defenders” that uses unlicensed “experts” to harvest IP addresses from bittorent trackers and solicits help from lawyers across the country in filing mass lawsuits and sending demand letters on behalf of various pornographers. The majority of recipients of such “lucrative offers” smells the scam and ignores attempts to draw them into a reputation-damaging endeavor. Nonetheless, some underemployed attorneys are eager to trade their dignity for a handful of shekels.

Meet a Colorado attorney Sanjin Mutić, who took the bait and filed two mass bittorent lawsuits in Colorado on behalf of a purveyor of fine arts — romantic movies with poetic titles (link NSFW!) — West Coast Productions Inc., essentially embracing a virtual company of an infamous attorney, who used to represent WCP, now convicted Kenneth Ford.

Why did I decide to give some bad publicity to a minor underemployed opportunist? So far, he filed only 2 cases (12-cv-02642 and 12-cv-02644) that list 75 Does, and there is a long list of other trolls waiting for my attention¹. I’ll tell you why I’m so mad at this particular troll: Sanjin Mutic is on the Triskеle Foundation board of directors. What is Triskеle Foundation? It is a non-profit with a noble goal of providing “a high school equivalency for all those who want it, first in Colorado, then in the nation”:

Our focus at the Triskеle Foundation is to help those Americans for whom high school is no longer an option. Our agenda not only humanitarian, it is economic.

For 10 years, we’ve been told to be vigilant. We’ve been encouraged to show our patriotism through yellow ribbons, bumper stickers, flag waving, and catchy phrases. As the world economies recover, our society needs to be competitive. Now is the time to prepare our ‘human capital’ for success in the global economy.

Yes, Mr. Mutic is a senior member of a foundation that wants our nation to be a nation of educated people: prosperity is premised on the high level of education. Yet he is also a porn copyright troll. You may ask why these things cannot coexist and why I compare them. I’ll explain. I receive tons of personal emails, and more than once I heard stories about how victims’ education was jeopardized by copyright trolls. Many troll targets succumb to fears of being publicly named in a lawsuit that alleges sharing of a movie such as Mom’s Black Cock Anal Nightmare 2 (yes, this is a “work of art” at the center of one of the two lawsuits filed by Mr. Mutic). So they often settle regardless of guilt. They pay using the money that was set aside for college — their own or their kids’. Even if a teenager indeed shared those “works,” isn’t the price paid not only by a victim, but also by the society as a whole, too high? On one occasion (and it’s the only one I’m aware of) a girl accused of sharing a cheap porno flick couldn’t withstand harassment and agreed to pay, but the only way she could do it was to postpone her college education for a year and find a low-paying job to pay installments. She claimed that she is innocent.

So, now we witness a double-faced man, who is listed among the leaders of the organization that solicits donations to provide education to everyone, yet at the same time, he is a part of an extortion conspiracy that in many cases results in depriving young men and women of continuing their education, because their savings have been diverted to greedy parasites.

I hope that the Triskеle Foundation board will take a note: if potential donors learn about one of the organization directors’ shenanigans, it will hardly help their obviously honorable work.

    BRAVO! Still want to cry.

    You’re killing me with these post titles LOL how am I supposed to open the website at work on my 27 inch monitor?!?!

    • SJD says:

      That’s the part of the game: google “Sanjin Mutic” in a couple of days… As a matter of fact I thought about the title read at workplaces. Yet if ArsTechnica’s chief writer decides that it is OK to have a title such as Teen Anal Nightmare P2P lawyer charged with felony, I’m in the clear. BTW there is a long discussion about this issue in the comment section of that article.

      • sharp as a marble says:

        lol hell google Triskele Foundation in a couple of days. you are gonna get an email about this one i am sure, and i love love love it. shame on them as they shame on us.

        also what kind of dillhole serves on a charity’s board that is primarily focused on educating children and then ties their name to this trash??

        • SJD says:

          BTW I gave a benefit of doubt to the guy, politely suggesting dismissing the lawsuits more than a week ago. He ignored my emails.

      • CTVic says:

        Glad to see you flexing your Google Muscle on these newbie trollawyers. Not a bad result for day one. Now, don’t ask me where exactly the Google muscle is … I think it’s somewhere down there, next to the kegel or something. Not sure, exactly.

        I’m also glad to see that ‘Moms Black Cock Anal Nightmare’ was such a fantastic hit that it warranted a sequel! Good for trolls. Bad for Mom. Poor Mom. Poor, poor Mom.

  3. Anonymous says:

    Prenda claims they have been supporting Wounded Warriors, Pets for Vets, Imerman Angels and Toys for Tots “for years” in spite of being incorporated for less than one year.

    That’s a little different because Prenda’s claim is clearly impossible, and there’s no way those guys are participating in much less serving as directors of those charities. They are not representatives merely using the names to make themselves appear more legitimate and honorable. Not that it’s not completely sleazy as well, the point is never underestimate a Troll’s willingness to drag someone else’s reputation through the mud for his own benefit.

  4. The Tod says:

    That seems fair to me. Don’t take a porn case to court if you dont want to be associated with it.

  5. That Anonymous Dude says:

    So, this guy’s Serbian or Croat (guessing by his name) and he wants kids to go to college? To get these kids to college, he sues them or their parents and asks for money normally allocated to a college fund? Am I on the right track? I think someone needs to email his non-profit and tell them what a winner they have serving on the Board. According to his LinkedIn profit, he’s a patent attorney. He’s been admitted to the Colorado Bar for 6 years (which is longer than most trolls).

    • sharp as a marble says:

      the blog on the non profit’s website has not been updated for over a year, i don’t know how active it still is…..

      • That Anonymous Dude says:

        This scumbag has his BS in Medical Physics from CU-Denver and his JD from University of Denver. Based on his science background, I’m gonna venture to guess he didn’t make it into medical school and said “hell, ok, well there’s always law school.”

        DU is a top-100 law school…which doesn’t mean that he’s not an idiot seeing as how I pulled this off (ironically) top-law-schools.com:
        “Admissions standards at the University of Denver Law School are not known to be terribly high. Roughly 31% (989 out of 3,140) of applicants were granted admission last year. For those who matriculated, the 25th to 75th percentile GPA range was 3.15–3.55 and the range for the LSAT was 156-161—with medians hovering around 3.46 and 159, respectively.”

      • SJD says:

        Yes, the nonprofit seems to be dormant. I sent a bunch of emails, many (even explicitly listed on the contact page) have bounced, only two went through: toby & ellen.

        …which may be even better, although not effective: I feel bad about punishing the foundation for the actions of one of its directors. As a matter of fact, I consider removing tags etc, so search for “Triskele Foundation” won’t be affected. But only after getting their full attention on the matter.

        • Anonymous says:

          Hello SDJ, will you post your email address so I may contact you? (or send an email to me from a personal email address) I fear that your emails to me got lost in the shuffle because of website construction, filtered out via spam filter or just plain missed because I get many and don’t check often enough. I tried to use your “email me” link in the contact section of this site but it will not work with my settings. I would like to discuss this matter with you. Thank You, Toby (from The Triskele Foundation)

        • SJD says:

          This is strange: I don’t remember receiving anything from you, and yes, the address in the “Contact” is correct. Maybe spam filter. Could you try one more time? sophisticatedjanedoe@yahoo.com? I’ll make sure to check spam folder carefully.

  6. that anonymous coward says:

    Hello new scammer. Enjoy your Google autocompletes.

  7. AC says:

    Number 8 result for “Sanjin Mutic” (right under his picture even!)
    Number 3 result for “Triskele Foundation”

    The image in the article is the second image result and comes up on the main search page. Perhaps you can put the word “TROLL” on it in big bold letters?

  8. Anonymous says:

    Your article is ALREADY 3rd on the results page when googling “Triskele Foundation”.

    I think it’s great that there are organizations out there helping kids get a better education. But could you imagine telling people that this guy helped your kid(s) get into college while defending porn?! There is an awkward moment. This guy seems two-faced. He needs to look in the mirror and decide what is more important….. A child’s education or defending porn.

  14. jammingwithiesu says:

    That is truly some great work by Mr. Cashman, but can someone clear up for me whether he is saying that Lesko is active as a Copyright Troll again? I thought that he gave it up after being pressured by his alma matter for his “1000% Return on Investment”?

    • jammingwithiesu says:

      Just an update, houstonlawy3r was good enough to respond to me on his blog, and informed me that Lesko is indeed still active in MS. As an alumnus of a Jesuit university, I really hope that his alma matter thinks strongly about allowing him to teach at a university that answers to the Holy See, and I encourage anyone else who reads SJD’s blog to join me in writing to them about this. It also may be useful to make a RESPECTFUL phone call to Connections magazine, which covers events related to Jesuit universities. From the Connections website “For more information, please contact Vice President for Communications.” I know I am going to.
