the SFLC dimisses its cases immediately after filing

Something like 97% of lawsuits in the US are settled out of court.

Notice that ninety seven percent of lawsuits are not instituted with duplicative claims that are ninety seven percent similar. With the SFLC, one hundred percent of the filings do not comport with the jurisdictional requirements of the Southern District of New York. The complaints do not identify the specific Copyright Office registrations that the allegedly infringed works are required to bear:

"It provides that "no action for infringement of the copyright in any United States work shall be instituted until preregistration or registration of the copyright claim has been made in accordance with this title." . . . Whether this requirement is jurisdictional is not up for debate in this Circuit. On two recent occasions, we have squarely held that it is".; In re Literary Works in Electronic Databases Copyright Litigation 509 F.3d 116 (2nd Cir. 2007).

One hundred percent of the SFLC's suits are eligible for immediate dismissal
by the district court for want of jurisdiction. The SFLC will NEVER, NEVER allow one of these frivolous, harassing suits to face an opposing motion from the defendants. The SFLC will dismiss WITH PREJUDICE against its clients first.

The brave GNU world must be really proud of the lawyers at the SFLC who are too incompetent to file a complaint that meets the jurisdictional requirements of the court. Especially since Ravicher and Moglen have sucked over one-half million dollars in compensation out of the SFLC these past two years.

Apparently a few true GNU believers have been fooled by the SFLC filings. The rest of the world knows better.
