Readers, WordPress and Copyright Troll.

March 8, 2013

Disclosure:
We are running a WordPress.org installation at 37prime and also have a WordPress.com blog.

Techdirt reports that Prenda Law has just ordered WordPress to hand over all IP addresses of users who accessed either FightCopyrightTrolls and DieTrollDie in the last two years.

It seems that Prenda Law is going on a fishing expedition. At least that’s what I think based on all the Law & Order series (the Original, Special Victims Unit and Criminal Intent) I have been watching for the past 15 years. Yeah, I watch too many of them.

Can Prenda Law legally subpoena WordPress for the iP addresses? Prenda Law first must convince the court that they have the legal right to do so.

WordPress should fight this ridiculously frivolous legal move.
