Cameo in DMCA "damaged, malfunctioning, obsolete" hearing

Interesting - I also have a cameo appearance in the DMCA May 2 testimony about "Damaged, malfunctioning, obsolete, other noninfringing uses"

(page 246, Joe Montoro, Spectrum Software)

One of the examples that was raised by Shawn and some other papers on our first day of hearings was Mr. Finkelstein I believe is the cost of litigation is so prohibitive against a small defendant that quite simply a lot of times a small guy can't afford to litigate these matters. At the time, that was the case. We just don't have the resources that companies with those kind of $500 million or $1 billion companies can actually come at us with.
