So, the other day I received a copy of a subpoena from a web-company that I do business with. Apparently they received a subpoena for my contact information because of a link to my page on their service from a blog I have never seen before in my life. Apparently, the company that is suing seems to think I write the blog in question (hint: it is not this blog, and this is my only blog).
The claim is that the blog in question contains some information that was obtained and posted illegally. The really scary thing is that the information that was posted seems to be talking about the company that is suing, the CIA, and war crimes. That is some heavy stuff.
The funny thing is that the web service that I do business with includes a link back to my personal site. Yet this company is trying to sue Cafepress for information about who I am. It is kinda tempting to send them a letter saying “hey dip-sh!#$, my name is Jackson Miller. It says it right f*(%!#&& there in your subpoena” (there is a screenshot for the web company I do business with). Of course, I will not really do that since I am a big pussy smarter than that.
I have seen the Nashville blogosphere be pretty helpful in situations like this before, so any comments and suggestions would be welcome.
Anyway, I guess I have to get a lawyer involved. Depending on how that conversation goes I may post more here. Hell, I may even post the subpoena.
Update: Welcome Instapundit readers! Knowing others are watching makes this situation less scary.
