As a result, the EULA was changed in August
2007 to remove any references to Non Commercial sites from the Custom
Content EULA. EA no longer has an opinion on the distribution of Custom
Content on Free/Donation/Pay sites. They clearly continue to support and
encourage all constructive fan sites in the community

First the Eula hasnīt changed bastard.

Second, even if the Eula has changed, that doesnīt mind, you canīt retroactively benefit from the new EULA, you have broken the law in that moment you have to pay for it, and you are still a thief because you knew that. Thieving scoundrel, nothing more

Is it just the laws of the EULA they are breaking.  I read these posts and if some of them are true they are breaking the laws of the land too.  Where I come from if you have any earnings they must be declared for tax purposes.  The FA are employed by tsr so they are either employers or employment agents. I am from the UK so employment laws are different so maybe I am confused but you can't earn money without paying taxes and here an employer must pay stamp duty for each employee.  I don't know how that works anywhere else. I know if I was guilty of tax evasion I would be keeping a very low profile and try not to piss to many people off.  No matter what country you come from though one thing is the same no matter how greedy you are the government is greedier and wants a cut of whatever you have.  The bit on the end of the threat saying that they would recover legal costs from your company is that Pescado or are they trying to scare the web providers of pmbd into taking the whole  site down.

No lawyer worth his suit would take on a case as translucent as this one.

Its basically one party stealing illegal goods and distributing them for free without and reprimands from the rightfull owners, ON TEH INTERWEBS.

If everyone sued over distributing of content on the internet there wouldnt BE any internet!

Well, it was about time they finally authored something OFFISHUL.  Roll Eyes  Since when does PMBD exist?

If this isn't a self-appointed, 12ish 'rescuer' of TSR (which is my personal belief), what made them write it now?
 
This case would never make it to a courtroom, but it's good for the lulz and therefore deserves its place in the PMBD threat cabinet.  Grin

They're apparently trying to threaten to sue the Malaysians, yes.

Actually, the RIAA is suing people over teh intarwebz - but then again, they are actually a major coorporation.

And yes, in the States, employers must basically match the tax payments of employees, after a certain amount.  Even if they are contractors, they still would need to pay the taxes for monies they earn, and the contractoers [FAs] would need to as well, regardless.

Well, that is interesting and sounds a bit futile.  Don't the Malaysians have an "Eh, you suck" attitude toward this kind of thing?

That...worst legalese I've ever seen. That's not even up to par with E-Lawyer standards. I was expecting better from you, TSR. Much better. You insult the Crackerbox Courtroom.

Thing is, I thought an individual or company had to get the permission of the country/state they're trying to sue in order to even enter into it. Good luck, assholes! Of course, I'm not sure how that would apply in International circles, but then again, we all know that TSR is basically just a circle jerk to begin with, led by one of the biggest wankers on the net. Stand up and take a bow, Thomass! On second thought, don't, we can't be sure that your fly is zipped or not...
