Jonathan Yaniv & Vexatious Litigation - Outside of the Human Rights Tribunal.


There are many instances of Yaniv using the law as a shield for their behavior. In Canada, he's currently embroiled in a battle against no fewer than 16 female-only beauticians for refusing to wax his balls. In the US, he has employed the DMCA falsely and incorrectly to try and dismantle services that host information he doesn't like -- for instance, this one.

On December 26th, 2018, he filed a DMCA complaint through Cloudflare about this site, as follows.

Cloudflare received a DMCA copyright infringement complaint regarding:

Below is the complaint we received:

We have forwarded this complaint to your hosting provider.


Cloudflare Abuse

This had nothing to do with removing infringed works and everything to do with scrubbing his SEO, as Yaniv professes himself an SEO optimizer and search result scrubber as part of his TrustedNerd and JY Knows It companies. Many of these images weren't even his original work, and were instead pictures of him heavily edited.

The same day, as a consequence and entirely because of that original complaint, I intended to do a stream about Jonathan Yaniv. For this stream, I used a photo of him fairly as a part of my thumbnail as I do with everyone I talk about. This was before the stream had began and was displayed only to people who'd have an interest in watching my content. The result was YouTube copyright striking my channel and prohibiting me from streaming for 3 months, which is pretty nasty to a channel about livestreamed content.

Regardless, I did my stream on a different site and uploaded it to Bitchute, which is a resilient video website. He took steps further by complaining to my datacenter (which was responsible for absolutely nothing except housing my hardware).


DMCA Notification –

My name is Jonathan Yaniv and I am the CEO of JY Knows It. A website that your company hosts via the IP assignment records, is infringing on at least one copyright owned by me and my company.

Many articles were copied onto your servers without permission. The website, also violates your AUP. It is a transphobic hateful, defamatory website to harass and doxx transgender people into depression and committing suicide. (

The unauthorized and infringing copies can be found at:

This letter is official notification under Section 512(C) of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (†DMCA†), and I seek the removal of the aforementioned infringing material from your servers. I request that you immediately notify the infringer of this notice and inform them of their duty to remove the infringing material immediately, suspend the hosting account of and notify them to cease any further posting of infringing material to your server in the future.

Please also be advised that law requires you, as a service provider, to remove or disable access to the infringing materials upon receiving this notice. Under US law a service provider, such as yourself, enjoys immunity from a copyright lawsuit provided that you act with deliberate speed to investigate and rectify ongoing copyright infringement. If service providers do not investigate and remove or disable the infringing material this immunity is lost. Therefore, in order for you to remain immune from a copyright infringement action you will need to investigate and ultimately remove or otherwise disable the infringing material from your servers with all due speed should the direct infringer, your client, not comply immediately.

I am providing this notice in good faith and with the reasonable belief that rights my company owns are being infringed. Under penalty of perjury I certify that the information contained in the notification is both true and accurate, and I have the authority to act on behalf of the owner of the copyright(s) involved.

Should you wish to discuss this with me please contact me directly.

Thank you.

I explained to the datacenter that the KF doesn't actually host with them and that resolved their concerns for a while. JY paid a LegalZoom lawyer to file another bullshit C&D directly to them.


This ultimately led to ColoCrossing choosing to discontinue service later that year and forcing me to physically mail my hardware to another location, at orders of parent company Deluxe, which I assume received complaints from JY -- anonymously, of course.

Despite his efforts, these sites are still up.

Not once has Yaniv ever personally told me he'd sued me, because he knows I would fight him. He doesn't like people who do that, which is why he goes after women and children.

Legal requirement.
I figured, but in the tribunal I believe he says Jessica is his legal name. I'm guessing he has changed it since then. The i.d he would have been showing to the waxers would still have the name Jonathon though, no doubt it would be confusing for people who spoke very little english.

Isn't it a general bad look to throw the baby out with the bathwater? In this case, throwing you out just because of JY giving some unconvincing threats by internet lawyers?
Corporate just doesn't want to deal with it. That's why this stuff is often so obnoxiously effective. Deluxe doesn't give a fat flying fuck about any of this. They don't care how they look, none of this is going to rebound back on the check-printing parent company of a random colocation center. They probably know JY is full of shit and won't sue or do anything, but they don't want a fat retard and his low-rent lawyer screeching in their inbox about anything and they don't want to dedicate more than four brain cells to figuring out how to make him go away. They probably took like five seconds to glance at KF and ED, realized that these sites will probably lead to more fat screeching retards taking up lawyer time, and just figured the easiest way to get everyone to fuck off was to kick the guy with the offensive websites off their service.

He said on the Irish radio show that he didn’t get it legally changed until this year

Now, granted, that might have been a lie, seeing as how it came out of JY’s mouth and all, but it’s possible he hadn’t done the legal name change yet

@Null did it feel good to return from a holiday and discover this piece of shit finally getting put on full blast?

I’d like to see the media interview with you in some stories about his initial successes getting people criticizing him deplatformed and his methods of trying to get his thread and your websites on him killed. The media should also be asking how and why the fuck this pedo creep was getting shielded and protected for so long and his abuse of the legal code and system to do it.

I had hoped the Lindsay Shepard twitter ban might kick start the media inquiries, but with all the other shit flying they don’t seem to realize she was just one in a long line of people silenced for questioning a deranged Troon pedo pervert who’s been preying on pre-teen girls for years.

I'm having trouble finding an e-search for Ontario. Wasn't one of the pageants that didn't permit him based there?

We do not threaten to do anything. KF is not a place to gather a personal army. If you want to organize your own takedown of Yaniv, do it elsewhere.
Okay guys, I'm a bit late to the game here, evidently. KiwiFarm has a nice platform, actually smoother than a lot of the others out there. Kudos.

I did a quick skim of the posts to date, so my apologies if I sound and look stupid. This little shit looks and sounds like he's fully used to having the system bend to his will, but the broken legal system in British Columbia has recently put back into play the Anti-SLAPP legislation which the Liberals took out, and as disclosure relating to this matter is directly in the public interest, if he tries to sue any of this crew, or even just serves them with a Cease and Desist (usually a Notice of Motion) in an attempt to scare you into submission, we are able to go after him for his attempts to SLAPP us into submission, like he likely does to his addled mother.

We can all see his M.O. but what I find really amusing is his apparent lack of legal know-how, and the stupidity of how he's gone about shaking people down. What we need to do, is mount a counter-offensive, similar to his but the really funny thing is, ours might have a bit more bite. He's totally fucked, because he's probably going to be investigated for his well-documented Criminal Offences:
  • Stalking (Criminal Harassment CC264)
  • Extortion (Extortion CC364)
    See Canada Criminal Code here.

Those two are just off the top of my head. We need to be careful about threatening him with CRIMINAL legal actions, as that is technically a crime. We can threaten legal and lawful CIVIL legal action all fucking day. It's a caveat, where a "threat of civil legal action does not constitute a threat, for the purposes of this Act".

Civil Asset Forfeiture comes into play here, because we can threaten to take his home and his fake boobies. And strangely enough, if he is targeting children like any good sexual predator likes to do, the AG may be induced to facilitate a form of Civil Asset Forfeiture. It looks like all he has done thus far has been is to file pernicious actions in Small Claims and Social Justice Tribunals, and it looks like he paid $25 dollars to dial-an-ambulance-chaser to certify some piece of shit claim that couldn't hold water even if it was waxed.
The Cease and Desist he served this server's hosting provider was hopefully (it's that shitty) written by the snivelling little bitch himself, he just got a similarly shifty lawyer to sign it, if that. The little shit seems to think he's good enough to falsify legal documents... which might be a crime or a matter which can be resolved via a nice tight little piece of LEGAL action.

I like that Alex is more than happy to give the narcissist enough rope to hang himself, and Tucker was just the icing. He will lose, sooner than later. But after he shuts up, it might be wise to hammer him Small Claims actions, or preferable just go after him in Civil Supreme. What are your thoughts, guys?

iirc the lawyer in the waxing case(s) mentioned him only changing his name legally shortly before the court case(s).
