Two Plus Two Receives Substantial Judgment in Intellectual Property Infringement Lawsuit

Hi Everyone:

Two Plus Two recently obtained a judgment from the United States District Court, District of Nevada, for $150,000.00 in statutory damages for the willful infringement of our trademark and copyrights. The judgment also includes reimbursement of our costs and attorney fees. The Defendant in the suit was Anthony Scocozzo (and/or one of his several aliases), a former member of the Two Plus Two forums, who registered a domain name containing our famous "TWO PLUS TWO" trademark and offered several of our copyrighted books for free download in the "e-book" format. We tried on numerous occasions to resolve the suit prior to litigation, but the Defendant refused to cooperate. Therefore, we had to file suit and enforce our intellectual property rights. Although we certainly don't enjoy litigation, we pursue lawsuits when we have to in order to protect ourselves from infringers. We are quite happy with the outcome and judgment in this case.

How much of that judgment do you think he will actually pay? I'm guessing 0 based upon the type of character he must be.

Can a mod verify the identity of the OP to make sure this is authentic?

Thanks for the update, I was actually just searching a couple weeks ago to see if there had been any news on this.
