    I can only speak for myself. When I do respond, I try to take the time to actually answer questions and provide helpful input. I do not expect to hear from anyone who posted a question to which I post a response. However, I do indicate that I would be pleased to answer additional questions in some circumstances. Sometimes, a substantive response can only be provided with additional information. Consequently, I may indicate the questions that need to be answered before I can provide further...

    Greetings. Without seeing the subpoena or the complaint presumably filed in Court, I cannot comment with specifics. However, with experience in both representing plaintiffs and John Doe defendants in matters similar to yours, I can provide you with what might have occurred. You posted a comment about a YouTube video. The author and/or creator of the YouTube video believes (most likely) that your comments constitute defamation or some similar claim. Possibly, an attorney agrees with him...

    You should visit www.eff.org or www.subpoenadefense.org for solid helpful information and a list of attorneys who handle these matters. To settle one of the mass p2p litigation matters, you should not need to spend more than 600 on this. If the infringement is more substantial, this would not apply. As for your Internet being shut off, It depends on who your ISP happens to be. If you are a student at a school that has done so, this is not surprising as schools have been enlisted to be...

    Greetings. From both a legal and practical experience, I am well versed in Minecraft servers and related issues. I also happen to have attended Quinnipiac School of Law and graduated in 1997. A well drafted terms of use would be helpful to create an arguable contract between you and those who donate to you. However, this would only provide a stronger basis to pursue individuals who may chargeback their donations. It would not necessarily eliminate the issues. But, for any number of...

    I have practiced in this area of law for several years throughout the United States. The question you ask encompasses many questions. However, you should not feel that you have no remedies. And, there certainly exists the possibility of having the photographs removed. I would be pleased to discuss this in greater detail beyond the information provided below should you wish. If you were a minor in the photographs, they should be removed immediately by the host immediately. If you were...

    I am not licensed in New York. I provide my answer based on handling hundreds of these cases over the last eight years. You should speak to an attorney about this matter. There are a number of options to consider. You can wait to see whether they obtain your identity and if they file a lawsuit against you. However, this could result in increased settlement demands and your name unnecessarily being included in the litigation. On the other hand, you may never be sued. I usually caution...

    My firm and I have represented several hundred of these matters over the last nine years. We offer a free consultation to anyone facing this situation. I also recommend you visit www.eff.org. As way of background, the RIAA (Recording Industry Association of America) began suing individuals (as opposed to providers of music online) in 2003. This is when I began representing individuals being sued for alleged Peer to Peer (P2P) copyright infringement. The MPAA (Motion Picture Association...

    While the use of a brand or mark would not so much be a copyright violation, you could very well violate trademark rights in doing so, particularly if the purpose has any commercial context. You should consult an attorney with more specifics.

    To begin with, any attorney would need to review the specific documents in question before providing you with specific advice. The documents may contain terms that would affect the analysis of the provisions and changes therein. However, there may indeed be a basis to challenge the enforceability of the new policy if it was not accompanied by adequate consideration. Moreover, there may indeed exist a problem with retroactively enforcing the policy after you have relied upon the original...

    Your question invokes a number of issues. To begin with, the site from which you obtain the photographs (Google most likely will be indexing the photographs stored on another website) may have applicable terms that govern the ability to use the photographs. As to copyright law, the photographs may or may not be subject to a registered copyright. Your use may or may not be fair use. Even if it happened to be fair use, some parties that protect their copyrights and trademarks may...
