This man is left to question that if peer-to-peer programs are the root of all evil, then why are the Plaintiff's investigators permitted to use them without consequences? Clearly it is these evil P2P programs that have been the instrument of illegally spying on and invading the computers of dozens of Michigan Internet users by Plaintiff's employee MediaSentry, and that information used publicly to those resident's determent.

This man thinks that perhaps MediaSentry will have a problem both being deposed, and actually testifying, in the Great State of Michigan if they are criminals under state law. And if they are the only ones who can testify to the veracity of the "evidence" collected in this case and refuse to come forward and do so, how can any discovery orders be granted against any Defendants, or any trial actually take place? That is something this man would like to know.

The very worst laws are good laws that go unenforced.
