More developments in "porn troll" copyright case


There’s more in the news about copyright trolls.  Salon recently reported the libel lawsuit by Prenda Law against a site called “Die Troll Die”, here, with a lot of the text of the complaint reproduced, here

“Die Troll Die” has its own account on its own site with materials about the case here, including an account of an invalid subpoena sent to Wordpress.
  
Electronic Frontier Foundation is reporting that it has moved to top a subpoena to identify the blogger(s) on the site Die Troll Die, here.   The article is long and gives a lot of supporting detail. Apparently another troll criticism site, “Fight Copyright Trolls”, link here seems also to be named.

Again, this "copyright troll" case touches several major parts of Internet law:  adult entertainment, copyright (including the "troll" problem, as seen before with Righthaven), and libel.
