I just got an e-mail from them. Apparently they saw that I reposted a link I found on rapidsearch to another forum.

Camwithher posted:

So you've been on our radar for awhile and I had our attorneys dig up
some information on you, Matt. I was rather please to learn you live
in North Carolina, because that opens the doors to some very simple
legal tactics not just for us at camwithher, but I know there are some
other webmasters looking for you as well.

You enjoy stealing content? trading it? We are aware of your
activity on several forums you belong to. I know everything about
you...including that lovely lil cinema job you hold.

The way I see things is 1) we proceed with legal action, thus exposing
you and your activities to family and friends due to the public nature
of proceedings in these matters or 2) you can provide us information
on those you trade our content with.

Let me know what it'll be

Here was my response:

Aegri Somnia posted:

Stealing content? What the hell are you talking about? I found some
links on rapidsearch.yi.org and break.com that I posted around. No
idea that it was "illegal" to do that.

Followed by:

Camwithher posted:

Oh really? how about your nice lil post of nicole's topless video?
and i dont care WHERE you find the links or anything else, it's stolen
content and YOU are dealing in it.

And then mine:

Aegri Somnia posted:

Yes, smart guy (or girl, apologies). Do a search on rapidsearch.yi.org
for that. It's up there. I had no idea the content was stolen. I'm
glad you're good with google and can search my name.

And her final retort:

Camwithher posted:

You really have no idea, genius. I said i dont care WHERE you get the
content. It is stolen and you are trading it. I can see you wish to
be difficult, so I'll just let our attorneys handle things from here
on out.

Perhaps YOU should do some research and know that we do take these
matters very seriously and have successfully nailed asshats such as
yourself in several states. Since you're so good at google, perhaps
you should use it to find out about our successful prosecutions and
perhaps to find yourself a nice lawyer.

I'll cease communication with you now for the sake of legal action.
Have a nice one.

So, the obvious question: What legal standing do they have here?

we will need to see the content in question that you posted before i can get my legal team to figure out what kind of trouble you may be in.

edit for serious answer.
Im no legal expert but emailing people and calling them asshats is no way to start off a legal proceding.. idle threats most likely

Tell us more about Nicole's topless video.

I mean that in a serious manner, not joking "I want to see tits lol". For the other one it sounds like you posted a link to someone else's stolen content, and that you did not steal the content at all. I don't think you are at fault for finding some porn and then linking to it when you aren't doing any kind of hosting or torrenting at all.

As for Nicole's topless video, what is she talking about. Did you host copyrighted material?

Stay down bitch

Not sure about the electronic commerce. But your defense is along the lines of; I found this stolen TV and gave it to someone else. But then on the other hand everyone who viewed it would be "receiving stolen goods". So that doesn't really work in this situation I guess.

Bottom line, if she was serious about suing you she wouldn't talk to you like this. It's like high school girl talk. "Oh really?! Wellllll I know what you did and I'm gonna tell"

Ignore it.

Well, they called you a "genius" and an "asshat", made vague references to how easy it will be to nail you in the NC due to some legal somethingorother, made reference to your "lovely lil cinema job you hold", threatened you with embarassment over the legal proceedings, and their only demands are for you to turn over other "traders".

They are loving bluffing, and are trying to scare you into giving them the information they want with vague legal threats, and the possibility of embarassment. They just googled you, which you already called them out on.

If they were serious about starting a case against you, you would have never heard from abby, just her lawyer, and there would be no snarky email exchange, just a court summons. Using "asshat" and "lovely lil cinema job" is not the proper way to start legal proceedings.

I would think once the phrase "lovely lil cinema job" was used, you'd know that these weren't legal threats but standard internet tough girl routines. If you had kept emailing with her, she would have told you that she couldn't talk because the FBI was at her door (although they would mysteriously disappear if you agreed not to provide any more links).

Besides, I've seen some of their work - they're clearly suing to mask the fact that their website sucks.

Do a search on http://rapidsearch.yi.org for "nicole" and "camwithher". I found the link that way. I reposted the links on another board. I'm guessing it must be some "member show" or something that belongs on their site.

Exactly. You didn't upload it, they aren't your servers... you should be fine. If they aren't after you for downloading it illegally -- which she didn't mention, then you should be fine.

And as was mentioned before... being that she's opening with insults and random threats, it doesn't sound like any serious legal action will be forthcoming. If they think you have such a lovely job, they won't expect to be able to squeeze blood from a rock and should just leave you alone anyways.

Good job, genious, I was sending you this unoficial e-mail to say that we are totaly going to sue your rear end for posting links on the internet. You could have avoided it if you just copperated with our unreasonable request. We take the internet very seriusly and my co-workers cousin's nephew is very internet savy and says we will be able to put your rear end in jail for a very long time, plus people will know you look at porn. Harasing/threatening you is the best way to get what we want and is totally legal, but since you're so stubborn about technicalities like "posting links" we are going to send you to jail now KTHNXBYE.

They're loving with you. They have no legal standing. I could give you ten thousand links to copyrighted content hosted on RapidShare, but I'm not providing you with any illegal content, only URLs. That's all you did, too. No harm, no foul.

However, for shits and giggles, please email them back and keep leading them on. This looks hilarious.

She sounds like a crappy Bond villain:

"I'm afraid, Mr. Aegri, that we have been aware of your existence for quite some time now. There shall be no escape for you this time. Feed him to the laser-guided sharks! Mwahahahahaha"

I wouldn't worry until you get some legal documents from her. If reposting links could get you in that much trouble then everyone on the internet would get sued.

Besides, you generally don't start off a C&D letter with such blatant blackmail.


Anyway, the best thing you could probably do right now would be to post the link to that topless video. Those camwither girls are such teases, I want to see Nicole in all her artificial jubbly glory.

Burn all identifying documents, social security card, birth certificate, license, and torch the hospital at which you were born. Flee the country. Don't take anything with you besides the clothes on your back, they can trace anything else. Once you reach north and/or south of the border you have one of two choices, suicide or start a new life as Juan Sanchez or Jacques Senchesse if you go south or north, respectively.
