A man with a big nose pointed this out:

"Under 17 U.S.C. § 412, statutory damages are only available in the United States for works that were registered with the Copyright Office prior to infringement, or within three months of publication."

He's not registered the copyright and the alleged infringement has occurred, so either Akiva is incompetent as an IP attorney or was outright lying about his intent to get statutory damages. Without that, he has to show the alleged infringement caused him financial damages, either through direct damage or loss of profit.

For those playing along at home, only 2 images are in play at all here:
200.gif

Akiva registered the copyright on the gif less than a month ago, due to another twitter spat.

The picture of his two youngest children was the only one included that was uploaded by Akiva less than 3 months ago.
837113

Akiva is admitting here that he only has these two applications BEING PROCESSED. How long does it take for the copyright process to complete?

So, in reality, he will likely not actually hold the copyright registrations for months. Tell me again how he proves this infringes his copyright and proves damages?

So he seems to do this a lot. "you used my image without my permission!" "Well...You sorta put it out there online for anyone to take and use" "Well now I have copyright claimed the image therefore you need to never use it again or you will have to pay me.....Three-hundred....Thousand dollars!" *cue dramatic music*.

IP lawyers are, for the most part, absolute trash from the gutter of the lowest, most unethical group of extortionists in all of law. Even credit card company lawyers shaking down people in Section 8 housing are better.
This is a fact. IP lawyers are utter inhuman pieces of shit. They manipulate and clog the court system, pick on small businesses and generally disrupt the flow of ideas. They deserve to be put in a fucking trash compactor.

He, along with law twitter, have been relentlessly A-logging Nick Rekieta for the past month or two. They REALLY don’t like lawyers who don’t have Ken White’s personal blessing.
The amount of people that want to suck Ken White's cock is astounding. Legal Twitter is full of stupid faggots who couldn't successfully sue their own assholes for giving them diarreha.

Because they're too fucking stupid to realize it was their colon.

The conjecture I've seen in security quarters is various government agencies have infiltrated the network and route traffic, allowing them to see bunches of the routing data.
That's what I've heard too, that they've infiltrated the traffic.

Of course he didn't register them. This faggot is all talk. He's fucking incompetent. "YOU USED MY PICTURE I SUE HURRR" is one of the dumbest, oldest, fucking internet things around. Its INCREDIBLY hard to sue for someone using your likeness or your family photos. Unless you're a major celebrity and selling a product, that's the only way to do it. Even sites with fake porn of celebs don't get sued. If they can't get sued, some dumb faggot isn't going to be able to do it.

What he's doing is basically taking money from his wallet and burning it. Suing for copyright over your own or other personal likenesses is INCREDIBLY HARD. Lets just go the steps he'd have to go through JUST to get to the infringement case.

1) Kiwifarms is a platform, not a publisher. Therefore it is not legally responsible for whatever its users post. Null, simply as owner, bears 0 responsibility. If he sues, it would get thrown out under 203. So the first basic lawsuit is a non-starter.

2) Next, he would have to sue Null to get them removed. If Null tells him to get fucked (obviously), he'd have to sue. And that's only to get them off. If Null doesn't profit from them and isn't getting any profit from the user, that's not infringement. So basically, he would have to first burn money to get them taken down. Which if you've seen cases like this before, is just burning money.

3) He'd have to sue the individual user/users using the photos. This would require cooperation from Null. Which Null would, again, tell him to go fuck himself. This means another separate lawsuit where he has to sue Null for user information. And only for that.

4) If he gets the IP addresses from Null, this is where the fun starts. They're still all John/Jane Does. And probably from multiple states and even internationally, with different ISPs. He'd have to subpoena every ISP he'd want to sue. Typically most IPs roll over, but some wouldn't for something like this. So he might have to end up SUING AN ISP.

5) Finally, he gets to you. He sues the user, if he ever gets the information. You file a motion to dismiss. The judge asks how was this faggot financially damaged. He can't prove he was. Case dismissed.

So. He's not going to be doing anything. He's dumb as dogshit. Another incompetent faggot. Shocking, that their side has so many cucks, losers and absolute dumbfucks who think they're special.

Akiva is admitting here that he only has these two applications BEING PROCESSED. How long does it take for the copyright process to complete?
NONE. It is INCREDIBLY hard to prove. Look up cases of celebrities with millions and millions of dollars who sued for likeness of their image and how many were successful. Hint: Not very many.

Or maybe he just makes shit up when threatening nonlawyers with dumb legal actions. It's also pretty unlikely statutory damages are available against anyone but an actual direct infringer.

NONE. It is INCREDIBLY hard to prove. Look up cases of celebrities with millions and millions of dollars who sued for likeness of their image and how many were successful. Hint: Not very many.
He wouldn't be suing over a likeness but over the copyright on an image.

Anyway what's important is the effective date of registration.

"The effective date of a copyright registration is the day on which an application, deposit, and fee, which are later determined by the Register of Copyrights or by a court of competent jurisdiction to be acceptable for registration, have all been received in the Copyright Office." 17 U.S.C. § 410(d).

It may or may not count as registered. It isn't in the copyright database yet, though.

Claims to be a lawyer but either has no idea how law works, or hopes everyone else has no idea how it works.
SO repulsive to a woman he was intimate with that she turned into a lesbian
Like to threaten to file suits against everyone he perceives as wronging him.

Well, now we know what Russel Greer would be like if he actually went to law school. Or didn't drool everywhere.
