How NOT to Choose a Copyright Attorney

Absolutely hilarious interaction between TJIC and an attorney looking for class actions in all the wrong places.  Extra marks for gratuitous Conan reference. 

And while we are on the subject of class actions, note this case in Overlawyered  where the class itself received a sum total (not average per person, but cumulative total) of $2,402 while their lawyers received $1,000,000.  Once a useful tool for redressing fraudulent behavior, class actions now have become primarily either 1) a profit-making-through-extortion tool for lawyers or 2) a way to legislate without actually going to the legislature.
