Last week Lipscomb’s outfit extended its tentacles to this state by clogging the Southern District docket with ten trolling lawsuits.
Meet a new Lipscomb’s recruit — Yousef M. Faroniya.
Yousef is a young attorney who seemingly made a lot of effort to build his online reputation: his AVVO’s reviews are excellent, and overall I did not notice any traces of wrongdoing. Therefore it is especially pity that his professional reputation is about to hit a bump: while seasoned dirtbags such as Paul Nicoletti and Keith Lipscomb have nothing to lose in this regard, associating oneself with one of the worst copyright trolling conspiracies can be devastating for a young attorney’s career, especially when people started realizing that Lipscomb/Malibu is not really different from Prenda.
Yousef states on his website:
At YMF Inc., we understand that clients can only be served properly if a clear line of communication exists, so we are readily accessible and dedicated to providing prompt and responsive service.
Our success is measured by how well the Firm responds to our client’s needs and we do so in a unique cost-effective manner in order to pass those savings on to our clients.
I hope that you, Yousef, will soon realize that Malibu Media is not a “client” in the common sense of this word, but a co-conspirator in an industrial-scale settlement extraction enterprise. This “client” does not need your savings or cost-effectiveness. Together, Lipscomb and X-Art extracted estimated 6 million dollars from American families by abusing the spirit of the Copyright Law. As for the “clear line of communication,” I dare you to try contacting your “client” directly.
The sooner you realize what pile of shit you stepped into, Yousef, the better for you. If you think I’m exaggerating, fine, don’t take my word for granted. Instead, turn on your intelligence and do a diligent research. I suggest starting with this academic paper, written by Luke Curran and published by the John Marshall Law School:
Malibu Media, LLC, mirroring Prenda Law, has employed an almost duplicative predatory practice with a few distinct alterations. Malibu Media actually produces adult erotica and has further refined and maximized the guilty-until-proven innocent paradigm to its fullest potential.
For your convenience, I have embedded the entire paper below. It’s a must read, and you should have read it before signing in for a “risk free” gravy train ride.
