Default It's over!!

Final (hopefully) update: IT'S OVER! -- Courtesy of a livestream from French which is running as I speak:

The case is being desimissed with predjudice (meaning, no more suits about this subject); Mauer has agreed not to pull these shenanigans anymore; the game has resumed development as of two months ago.

So, YAY!

Still not over as far as Sid Alpha is concerned, she and some guy who pulled shady shit of some kind have been trying to get his channel closed down due to community strikes about using private information.

In the guys case it's that he goes by his real name online, so he can't say StrongBad69 aka Dave Smith, it's Dave Smith all the way.

Yeah, I saw videos about that, recently, as well.

Sad thing is, if Mauer pursues that line of action, she more than likely would not understand why it might be considered a violation. Remember, she openly told the judge (after it was too late) that she considered the settlement to be more or less a joke that was never meant to be in force. Guess she should have said something about that BEFORE she signed it...

On a side note -- The Starr Mazer guys have either set up a site, or are in the process of setting one up, which allows someone to be declared "associated with" Imagos, which would cause them to be covered by this settlement. French will be vetting the applications. This could theoretically include anyone Mauer has tried to DMCA over SM content.

edit: The judge responds: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h-ZYCXCwTl0

Unfortunately, she's at it again. She has issued 8 DMCA takedowns after agreeing to stop doing that.

GK - I may do the same. It honestly looks like the sort of game I'd like to play, anyway.

CC - Thanks for the update! Not wise of her to do this -- It's a blatant violation of a Court Order o_O

It looks like these false DMCA takedowns could mean that Alex Mauer has perjured herself.

Hopefully, she can be sent to jail for this.

Possibly, as the same can be said of her initial DMCA claims that got all of this crap started -- but unlikely. Ditto for her actually *ever* having to pay any money. She has some well-documented mental issues, and the opposition was prepared for this possibility when they chose to defend the lawsuit. From what I've seen, they really only cared about maintaining their rights. I don't think they asked for much beyond court/attorney costs, anyway, some of which has been covered via crowdfundung (and at a greatly reduced rate).
