Aren't they going to have trouble if they can't prove she actually has any of those 54K videos she supposedly illegally downloaded?

They shouldn't have got greedy and just gone after her for the initial 15.

It's a scare tactic. They hit her up for 15 and send her the bill. She refuses, so they take her to court claiming 54K were actually downloaded as a scare tactic to try and make her pay up. They don't actually want to go to court, they just want what money they can squeeze from her.

Oxford Dictionary
Extortion: The practice of obtaining something, especially money, through force or threats.
In Texas
Title 7, Chapter 13, Section 31.01(3)(a)
induced by deception or coercion;​
Title 7, Chapter 13, Section 31.02
CONSOLIDATION OF THEFT OFFENSES. Theft as defined in Section 31.03 constitutes a single offense superseding the separate offenses previously known as theft, theft by false pretext...extortion ...
Induced or coerced to settle outside of court for X amount of dollars or we will take you to court and ruin you.
False pretext. Courts have already ruled that just an IP address is not enough to identify a person. (Malibu Media v. 174.61.81.171) Deceiving the defendant that her IP address is enough to convict her.

Why are the lawyer and/ or the plaintiff not being charged for committing this crime?

Although I understand and in a way, agree with you. Personally I'd be happy to see them get a real beat down. Some broken ribs are a hell of a lesson one rarely forgets.

But, as long as the are essentially under the umbrella of "exercising their rights" under the law, I'm not so sure we want to go this route.

They brought up the case, I figure that as long as the woman can hang in there and get her day in court, then the verdict should go her way, and her expenses should be levied on the trolls. Let them play the stupid games and win the stupid prizes.

What we need to work for is ensuring that the little guy has a chance to last until court day. Then the legal system has a chance to work right. It's when it gets cut short that there is a problem. It's like being forced to go all in when your stack is short, your just screwed.

Mmmmm, except they do. Especially ladies. The vast majority of erotic book sales are to women.

Raw doggin', ball slappin', butthole gapin', titty humpin', back of throat gaggin style porn. Not erotic fantasies where they are making love with the strong silent type Lord from England that came over to save her. One, they like the talking. The other... their mouth is full.

Haha! Were those some of the actual titles? Didn't notice them in the linked article, just a partial list of unrelated other stuff. The complainant is X-art, which is more or less aimed at women, I think. I don't know, I guess it's more "artsy" hence the name.

the degredation is in your imagination. I am sure that that does not stop you from watching porn. it gives you the luxury of pretending to be morally superior while enjoying the "degradation" over what are natural body functions. meanwhile men get congratulated over everything they manage to put their penis into....

except azureus...

I like how you are assuming that all porn is the same. Wide sweeping generalizations are, after all, the telltale sign of a superior intellect. *thumbs up*

Doesn't work that way. All fiber, satellite, and cable modems (assuming broadband) have a unique mac address. It used to be you could sniff mac addresses and emulate your neighbors to share his connection. Those loopholes have long since been closed....unless you are running custom firmware which ISP's check for.
Actually it still goes on most ISP could care less about it unless it's one of their enterprise clients. Dos attacks are one of the most non stopped forms of spoofing and ISPs don't seem to stop those much then you have man in the middle spoofing & Non-Blind Spoofing all are still common and used let not forget Blind Spoofing . ISP tend to leave the security up to the user.
