Press release from the website of Michael S. Pascazi, the guy who briefly tried to pull a fast one by filing an application to trademark the name "Bitcoin" for himself.

http://pascazilaw.com/news.html

August 4, 2011:

Pascazi Law Offices  Secures Court Order Requiring Yahoo! Inc. to Turn Over The Name of Anonymous E-Mail Writer.

Michael S. Pascazi Esq. recently secured a court order, on behalf of a client, from the New York State Supreme Court, compelling Yahoo! Inc. to turn over the name and address of an anonymous email writer, who was using his anonymity to harass and inflict emotional distress upon Attorney Pascazi's client. With the name and address of the emails' author, a lawsuit can be started by Attorney Pascazi, seeking monetary damages from the perpetrator.  What should be taken away from this event is that anonymity on the Internet only goes so far, and will crumble in the face of tortuous and/or criminal conduct.


Edit: Pascazi altered his news posting shortly after I made this post, apparently adding that these e-mails were "egregious" and "outlandish" and that his "client" had just lost a young son.  This quotation is the original version before his edit.

Companies claiming they got hacked and lost your coins sounds like fraud so perfect it could be called fashionable.  I never believe them.  If I ever experience the misfortune of a real intrusion, I declare I have been honest about the way I have managed the keys in Casascius Coins.  I maintain no ability to recover or reproduce the keys, not even under limitless duress or total intrusion.  Remember that trusting strangers with your coins without any recourse is, as a matter of principle, not a best practice.  Don't keep coins online. Use paper wallets instead.

Well if someone is going to harass someone else, they should do it openly with their own name. They shouldn't hide behind anonymity (except in cases where they'd be put in physical harm if their identity was known). With that said, Yahoo should not have to surrender client records if it doesn't want to. The court should not have the authority to compel Yahoo to surrender data when Yahoo has not committed any crime.

I am just mildly entertained that he went to that much effort.  If someone was harassing me in e-mail, and I wasn't in 7th grade trying to keep my reputation unscathed through puberty, I would probably just block them.  Or ignore them.  This looks more like tit-for-tat, he apparently wants to one-up somebody and make whoever is sending these e-mails pay to litigate over it.  And then he posts it on his news page, you know, like it's news, where further down the page he ironically makes himself out to be the champion against the "frivolous" actions of other lawyers.  I guess he has plenty of time on his hands, not a whole lot of clients I guess, perhaps New York's divorce rate plummeted to zero ever since they started accepting gay marriage and there's just not a lot of business anymore.

Nope, that's pretty much fact.

Help Bitcoins by buying clothes, technology, books, etc. through people/stores that accept BTC. This will increase overall value of BTC as well as mitigate unnecessary bank transaction fees.
