If I would be him I would use this for my exit strategy:

Of course, it is not Mr. Prices fault, that nobody is interested in using Console OS.

These damn 13 backers have destroyed and ruined with false claims and lies the reputation of Console OS.

So it is no wonder that a lot of ressources Mr. Price had to spent to fight against these trolls instead for development.

Unfortunately Mr. Price`s burning midnight actions didn`t work against such inflammentory enemies.

Because of this negative reputation no developers want to take part on the developer rewards, which is open for all Android distributions.

There must be also a conspiracy including the 13 damn trolls, Remix OS and Android-X86 -> maybe financial motivated.

So in the end Mr. Price has no chance against this superiority, stops Console OS, the developers reward and now he has to proof legal actions against these people.

I wouldn`t be suprised if the story goes this way :-)

"There's no question that Jide has been "supporting" Android-x86 for awhile now, and we intend to pursue the appearances of impropriety there more aggressively. We'll say this: We didn't pay Android-x86's shakedown demands."

Now he's gonna go after Jide? To accomplish what? No one believes that Jide paid some kind of ransom. No one believes that Android-x86's request for a donation was a "shakedown." How does he not get this by now? How does he still portray himself as, simultaneously, a hero and a victim?

Hello Bluehost Staff,
 
Below is our first DMCA complaint about the site “ConsoleOSRipoff.com” - This site, we feel as a whole, infringes on our trademarks, copyrights, and intellectual property. This is the first, of likely several complaints, that you will have to process.
 
More seriously, the site has engaged in a pattern of cyberstalking against members of our company. This has devolved into stalking individual employee and contractor’s social media sites, eBay auctions, LinkedIn pages, and more - with the intention of pressuring them to stop working for our company. We are considering and preparing legal action.
 
We discourage you from hosting this site. It is engaged in a pattern of cyberstalking and cyberbullying against individuals on our team.
 
Finally, we respect criticism of our products. This site has crossed that line on numerous occasions, and is engaged in a pattern of outright harassment.
 
Thanks for your time.

Price is really getting desperate. Though seldom enforced there are serious penalties associated with knowingly filing false DCMA claims.

About 60 seconds of Googling shows that this site does not infringe as it fails 2 of the 3 elements of trademark infringement:
http://cyber.law.harvard.edu/property00/...seLaw.html

And, even so, as a commentary site it's fair use anyways.

The ironic part about the "cyberstalking" claims is that if he didn't fraudulently represent himself as an outsider on those accounts, we would have no reason to look into that activity. Besides, any activity by this huckster gives us potential insight into what Kickstarter funds are being used for.

So which is it?

He's always said that claims of astroturfing were "unfounded." Now he's saying that these other accounts are members of his "team" that are being cyberstalked. If that's the case, then he has to admit that the astroturfing is true because, at some point, these other accounts have been spotted praising Console OS without disclosing they were Console OS employees.

We should be flattered that the Founder, CEO, Chairman of the Board, CFO, COO, CTO, Contractor, and Team Member is following us so closely that he managed to send that little love note on the same day as the "infringing" post Wink

Christopher doesn't have much of a future in the IT industry, but he does have a promising career in inadvertent comedy, because that was one of the funniest things I've read in a while.

"if you give people a tool that they can use to try to stifle the speech of others, it will be abused. It's always abused. Those insisting that expanding takedown abilities to target trollish accounts will lead to good outcomes are failing to realize that the exact opposite is likely to happen. The takedown powers will be abused by the trolls instead. Be careful what you wish for."

many things on DMCA takedown notices are changing....
