You’re correct, there is no win with a Pro Se to changeling this complex area of law it's just saddens me to read that the Internet is a present safe haven to infringe on U.S copyrights and market them abroad to subscribers in foreign countries. Even the Berne Convention rules there are no case laws for U.S. Federal courts to form a basis of Jurisdiction other than possible torts or long arm statues, which foreign companies know arguments can be made which ultimately ends in the dismissal of the cause for lack of Jurisdiction when infringement occurs over the internet in a foreign county to residents of that county. I am currently saving up; I have a few firm interests in my case.

If you have a "few firm interests" in your case then you need to have those attorneys re-think there personal jurisdiction analysis. If a company resident in the United States infringes a U.S.-registered copyright overseas then that company can be sued in the U.S. for those acts of infringement occurring overseas. My suspicion is that you simply cannot afford to pay the attorneys' fees to bring the suit -- not that the law does not permit you to bring it in the first place. It's a life lesson that every wrong does NOT have a remedy. Good luck.

You’re correct about the funding, however I filed the case waiting for all parties to be properly served through the Office of the clerk. I am now just saving. However I was just reading information on scholars who have touch on this very subject and they all point to case law as a factor to determine proper jurisdiction many cases have been dismissed in situation like what I spoke about others have won when minimum contact with the forum state have occurred. looks like improper service of process and proper jurisdiction allow for an over whelming amount of cases to get dismissed even when lawyers and law firms take on cases regarding Copy right infringement over the internet. Thank you so much i don’t intend on representing myself.
