Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

One of The Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin’s less than successful LOLsuits was his copyright case against Kimberlin Unmasked. It seems as much motivated by Jealousy and Butthurt as reputation management.

The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin’s current lawfare isn’t limited to the Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. and the Kimberlin v. The Universe, et al. vexatious lawsuits. He has also filed a frivolous copyright suit against the anonymous blogger(s) Kimberlin Unmasked. There are lots of defects in the copyright suit, not the least of which is the fact that TDPK admits in the suit that he’s not the holder of some of the copyrights he is suing over.

Reading over the suit again, it seems to me that a big part of TDPK’s motivation for the suit is jealousy. His websites have vanishingly small presence on the Internet. OTOH, those of us who have been blogging about him have much higher traffic.BK v KU ECF1-15In essence, TDPK is bitching because others are more creative and more successful with his material than he is. Their Fair Use parody and criticism has more real world impact than his original work. Unfortunately for TDPK, butthurt is not a cause of action under copyright law.

While Kimberlin was able to induce a couple of people to settle the case with him and he did get control of the kimberlinunmasked dot com web domain, a new kimberlinunmask dot com site quickly appeared and the pointage, laughery, and mockification has continued.

Failing failures gotta fail.
