Lawyers Face Sanctions over Porn Copyright 'Shakedown'

, The National Law Journal


A federal judge in Los Angeles, raising concerns about a "legal shakedown" has ordered four attorneys and a paralegal to show up at a hearing next month to explain why they shouldn't be sanctioned for fraudulently filing dozens of actions against unnamed individuals accused of downloading copyrighted pornography videos.

    Mrs. Bronstad,

    Nice article. I would like to point out that Mr. Pietz does not own or operate or I don't remember seeing that statement in any of the document either.

    You might not have noticed that in the motion for sanctions against Mr. Pietz, Mr. Gibbs made inaccurate statements concerning my Web site by alleging I was pro-piracy.

    Based on this I filed a declaration to correct this, as well as inform the court on some questionable actions by Mr. Gibbs. You can find this declaration as document #42 on the case docket.
