I find some of the parallels between various copyright trolls to be interesting. The TKPOTD from seven years ago today explored one.

Yesterday, I noted a similarity between the Prenda Law case and the Virginia Walker v. Kimberlin, et al. case—that both Penda’s lawyers and The Dread Pirate Kimberlin had taken the Fifth during civil lawsuits. There’s another parallel between Prenda and TDPK.
Prenda is a copyright troll going after individuals who have downloaded pornographic videos for which it claims to control the copyrights.
Brett Kimberlin dealt pornography to other inmates while he was in prison and was also involved in a porn related lawsuit. There’s a section (pp., 202, 203) in Mark Singer’s book Citizen K that describes TDPK’s attempted suing of his source for $150,000 in damages because the porn wasn’t sufficiently exciting.

That porn LOLsuit was the first of the four RICO lawsuit that the
Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin lost.
