Before you charge someone with copyright infringement, you must make registration

Dear Readers;

When for some reason people are ignoring your First Amendment rights, because that just seems too foreign, or too far from reality, get them with copyright infringement as per the long standing tradition of Disney, the MPAA, etc.

So guess what $35 and 2.5 months buys you?  Very economical.  A copyright case!

So today, in honor of Disney and the MPAA who have brought us new ideals in terms of perpetuating copyright laws well past 75 years plus the death of the author, and the MPAA who is famous for the movie “This Film is not yet rated” on Netflix, here we go again.

My theory is, if the ARDC think the First Amendment was a joke, the Copyright laws might speak to them differently. And for those of you not familiar with Nimmer on Copyrights, a 10 volume treatise on discount at Amazon.com for $1700 (yeah, like the ARDC is going to whip out that dough), US copyright law is strong, well enforced by our (noncorrupt) ND Ill. courts and in full swing on most days. Let’s see if the ARDC will respect my copyrights in my intellectual property. Joanne
The next step is Federal District Court and an assertion of copyright infringement entitling the copyright owner to statutory damages and attorneys fees.  Punitive damages are awardable for wilful (knowing) infringment, which I believe this is.
Because copyright laws are sooo very pro-plaintiff, pretty much no one messes with it.
Except for the very stupid and unknowing.
JoAnne
PS— I have made sure that the copyright registration upload file contains all 16 paragraphs of the ARDC complaint against me.  So this is how it goes, the ARDC complaint is groundless under my First Amenment rights and that fails, after which those who signed it, condoned it, initiated complaints based upon those quotes, are all liable for attorney’s fees which entitles the copyright holder to attorneys fees and statutory damages. There is contributory infringement and vicarious infringement, provided for by case law. If the infringer does not settle prior to entry of judgment, it is enforced by delivering it to the US marshall for criminal prosecution.  QED.  Very plaintiff and pro-copyright holder friendly courtesy of Disney and the MPAA.  If you have not seen the movie “This film is not yet rated” you should do so now.
