The copyright trolling campaign in the United States may not be coming to a grinding halt, but it looks like it may come to a sluggish crawl. In an order issued today in the Achte/Neunte (aka Far Cry) vs Does 1-4,577 case – Judge Rosemary Collyer granted and denied in part the US Copyright Group’s request for an extension to serve all defendants to five years.
So what does this ruling mean? It’s actually a partial victory for the USCG, since Judge Collyer is saying they can sue some Does that have already been identified by Time Warner – but ONLY those that are actually in that Court’s jurisdiction. How many could that possibly be? Not many – so while some of their request is granted, the much bigger picture is not in the USCG’s favor.
