As a result of the settlement conference with Magistrate Judge Sullivan, Bill Schmalfeldt and I have reached a settlement agreement on what I believe are favorable terms.
I will dismiss my lawsuit, and Schmalfeldt will dismiss his counterclaims against both “Paul Krendler” and me. All infringing material will be taken down.
The Gentle Reader should expect to see some changes in Bill Schmalfeldt’s activities on the Internet.
UPDATE—I recommend that Bill Schmalfeldt be given the opportunity to make the changes in his Internet presence that he described to me. He will probably be more successful in doing so if folks don’t joggle his elbow. Each person is free to speak, largely limited by their conscience and a few rules, but it may be best to give him some space for a few days to see how he does.
