If you are a copyright troll’s victim, current or former, you can help to end the trolling plague.
With Prenda’s demise, copyright trolling disease may not be in its acute phase any longer. But the virus has mutated and adapted, and the infection is now chronic. Granted, fewer people are victimized these days compared to wild times of lawsuits that lumped together hundreds and even thousands of defendants. But for individual victims, the illness is no less damaging.
Thanks to outdated laws and opportunistic parasites who abuse them, careers and families are still being steamrolled over minor copyright violations (or even when there are no violations), and money continues to flow from the pockets of productive US citizens to lawyers’ bank accounts, and to foreign “investors.”
Today’s problem is less visible, but some are still working to cure the judicial system of this sickness forever. There are forces out there that are not happy with the status quo and that want to make a change.
For that, troll victims, former or current, need to come forward.
While the number of copyright shakedown victims is estimated to be half a million, it is difficult to find motivated public speakers. I understand that the majority just want to leave their nightmarish experiences behind them. Many are concerned about their future employment and personal relationships, especially if their stories involve pornography. Some just don’t believe in justice any longer — after the state, instead of protecting them, helped crooks with law diplomas to “legally” deplete their kids’ college funds.
However, I’m sure that some victims are not afraid to come forward to help end this plague.
If you want to share your story with wider audience and are not afraid to do it under your real name, please contact me. I’m talking about the mainstream media coverage and even lobbying the Congress. You can make a difference.
All the rest: stay intrigued.
