[TheNextWeb] FTC wins $163 million from woman who tricked 1 million users into thinking their PCs had malware - Page 5

post #41 of 43
The company is/was based in the ukraine isn't it? Is kristy ross american? Or some foreigner who can disappear into the underbelly of the uncivilized parts of the world and never resurface again all while her money is protected by various banking nations. Somehow I don't see the FTC ever getting any of that 163 million, and if she isn't in the states now then I doubt if she'll ever be apprehended.

What do you gain by playing coy? Just come out and say what you mean, maybe?

He's talking about kim dotcom. That should be obvious to just about anyone on ocn I would have thought.

Yes, I did get that. If it's obvious to you and I, then why didn't he just say so? I asked him why he was beating around the bush and my question still stands.

Also, I think the reason people have love for Kim Dotcom is related to the way he was recently wronged by his government in cooperation with another government in an extralegal manner that didn't fit in with the laws of his home country.

I remember seeing a study that showed that some of the biggest downloaders of pirated media were also the largest legal consumers of media as well. So by attacking these pirates the media companies are also attacking some of their biggest customers.
