Did anyone else notice the judge's signature? Weeeirrrd...

Maybe he's a big "Monty Python and the Holy Grail" fan.

Kudos to HardOCP for their victory. Geez, that Judge's signature IS nuts. I guess it saves time though

Yeah, I noticed that myself. Ok, my last name pretty much devolves into up and down squigglies, but the name lends itself to that (even my wife has succumbed!). I really don't know how "Kaplan" became that.

But, hey, it's distinctive, and that's important in his line of work.

Yeah, $200k is peanuts for a decent site.

Does Blue pull that sort of money??? Or is his site not decent? Granted there is an indecent amount of animal related OotB's but that's about it (what ever happened to the cat that sneezes on food it wants to eat?).

Sold to whom? Anandtech is run by Anand, hosted on a load of custom boxes, with content and ads served by a piece of fairly custom software... so who would own it?

I can only say I was probably at least as shocked as any of you at that figure.

Yeah, $200k is peanuts for a decent site.

Seriously though, it's only through your sheer hard work and dedication to an ethic rather than a business model that this site stays alive in the way that we all love Let us make donations.

Thanks, Blue.

These hardware review sites make money. I heard Anandtech was sold for $10 million couple years ago...so I bet HardOcp has at least half those assets.

I didn't realize [H]ardOCP was such a cash cow that they could afford $200K in leagal fees. Are they typical of hardware and gaming website these days?

Blue, you have any insight on how much web properties (such as HOCP, but not necessarily HOCP) make in a year?

I can only say I was probably at least as shocked as any of you at that figure.

So how (can?) does OCP recoup legal fees or do they have to countersue for frivulous lawsuits? Not long ago, Phantom only had 20k in the kitty so is there any way for them to get money back?

I'm guessing they also recieved massive amounts of donations for this cause. I know I was thinking of donating.
