Ah, frivolous threats of legal action. Where would the tech industry be without them? Today, Cory Doctorow received one from StarForce, a company that offers, er, ‘professional protection against software piracy’. You can draw your own conclusions based on their online reputation. Here’s the threat in question:
Dear Sir, calling StarForce “Anti-copying malware” is a good enough cause to press charges and that is what our corporate lawyer is busy doing right now. I urge you to remove your post from http://www.boingboing.net/2006/01/30/anticopying_malware_.html because it is full of insults, lies, false accusations and rumors. Your article violates approximately 11 international laws. Our US lawyer will contact you shortly. I have also contacted the FBI , because what you are doing is harassment.
And this came from StarForce’s PR guy? Dear me.
