Thank you, my questions are general to give me an understanding of the process. This forum was developed for us Pro Se or anyone who have legal questions. My questioning in no way would suggest I would act as if, I have the knowledge or could gain it from a forum of this nature to practice law. It is quite obvious courts are for experience attorneys. I think for the common good well and justice; a Pro Se who has copyrighted property being stolen, it is worth presenting to an honorable Judge. However I do believe if there case is ordered to proceed they should never stop searching for the funds to retain counsel for their case. Copyright cases are never taken on pro bono or on a contingency basis leaving many artist to fend for themselves or simply allow infringers free rain to their content.

When I filed my case in Federal Court, I made it clear in my complaint I am not an attorney and I would observed Federal and Civil Rules of Procedures to the best of my knowledge and understanding. The Honorable Judge allowed my case to proceed. Prominent legal Counsel has agreed to represent my case.

Copyright cases are virtually never taken on a pro bono basis because they're too much work. But good copyright cases ARE frequently taken on a contingency basis if there are legal fees available per statute.

If you've got a lawyer, then they'll be the 1st one to advise you that you shouldn't be posting anything about your case on this public forum.

Working on the retainer, no one going to take copyright cases on contingency fee or pro bono, a growing concern among artist, into days economy, where the Internet have rapidly expanded infringement giving infringers free rain. In the ringtone industry infringers are making million in profits, without paying royalties to the original artist. Firms have mentioned intellectual property cases are complex and can run legal fees from 50,000 into the millions. Were on our way to Sunday services have a great day.

Lastly copyright cases pose the biggest concern among lawyers because unlike patents, a copyrights validity can be challenged in court, that the author (artist) have defrauded the copyright office in obtaining the copyright. A flaunt I believe in the copyright process where they don’t do prior art searches when granting copyrights. Patents have prior art searches performed before a patent is granted. Many defendants lawyers can make this assertion about the copyrights validity even when the copyright was applied for by an attorney. Thank you!
