SubjectRe: [DNG] Yes I am an attorney. - Re: Identity of OP (Software written by contractors and the 'work for hire') concept - To Bruce Perens
Explain exactly how I was "wasting" your time. You responded with 
derision and mockery when I brought up laches; as if it was no issue.
Then you made a claim that a court would accept a _plaintiff's_ claim
that they just had to sit on their rights because they "had no money to
hire a lawyer" when the court would simply inform said plaintiff that
they can bring the action pro-se. There is not a right council in civil
cases even for indigent defendants, and you mock me for bringing up
laches when attempting to obtain injunctive relief when we are talking
about a plaintiff in a civil case?

Courts don't even accept a civil defendants claim that they cannot pay
an ordered judgement (where the court believes they money exist
"somewhere" and the defendant is holding out) owing to the fact that the
court had them jailed for contempt of court for six months prior and
thus defendant had no means of raising said funds. Back in the slammer
for another six months, over and over again. No, Bruce. A middle class
programmer trying to defeat a laches affirmative defense, when he is of
sound mind and body, solely with a claim of inability... will not work.

I brainstorm some of the affirmative defenses the opposition WILL use,
and you mock me and put my reputation as it pertains to legal knowledge
in a negative false light. This is when you, Bruce, are not an attorney
and are thus not likely involved in the lengthy run-up to your court
appearances (as an expert witness), where-as I am an attorney and must
anticipate such road-blocks.

Here's another attorney on the LKML warning another poster about some...
hmmm.. affirmative defenses ... such as laches and friends.

For the record here's what Bruce Perens had to say about me:
