Re: CIPPIC has been granted Intervenor Status

So more less, voltage attempted to extort money but most likely will end up paying money.

Is it a given they will be directed accordingly at some point?

wow...wasn't TSI's cost's to date $190,000? The voltage number crunchers will be working overtime, weighing the possible advantages of continuing on. will be interesting to see what their next move will be.

It may have been part of the deal beforehand: Give us time to inform our customers, and pay our costs, and WE won't fight it.

If that's so... *snickers*

They should be paying more then Teksavvy's costs. The should be paying for Teksavvy's time on this as well as anything else their lawyers can come up with

Scenario:
Voltage doesn't pay TSI.
TSI sues Voltage.
Judge awards copyright to all Voltage films to TSI.
TSI offers free d/l of all the titles.
Poetic justice.

Music to my ears.

I saw this TED talk yesterday and it made me think of this case. Replace "patent troll" by "copyright troll" and you're pretty much on the mark.
