And I fully approve of the attacks by 4chan
These attacks may raise more attention though. Interesting to see what may happen in the near future... even though, I approve because I appreciate privacy.

I'm sure it's easy to approve of this move when it's not yourself who has their name, address, and credit card information pasted into a torrent file. You appreciate privacy at the expense of others'?

It would be nice to see some payback dealt to the lawfirm, not the people they were pursuing legal action against.

When you are trying to win a great battle, there will always be losses and sacrifices have to be made.

LMAO 4chan is a force to be reckoned with; too bad legal authorities simply can't submit to their power.
In some ways I think they have. 4Chan could be taken down for a number of legal reasons, though they are such a powerful entity that authorities may consider it a bad move to take any action against them as a whole. Plus, since 4chan has no memory or logs per se, it would be futile to try and prove anything against them.

I wonder how many children in the world say, if they were asked, "what do you want to be when you grow up", would say, "I want to be a copyright attorney for a pornographers cartel"....!

This career choice has to be a step way down in status from cleaning sewers, or even robbing poor boxes.
