That is for just one of the charges.  The other charge carries a possible 30 years and bigger fine...  so the dude is looking at a possible 50 years + fine.  THAT SAID,  he did plead guilty...so there IS a deal on the table.  I'm guessing he'll get away with a big fine... or possibly a small jail sentence + fine.

@pinballjim, is that sarcasm? Can't quite tell.

Based on the article, Foley pulled some pretty bold moves, plus since he had an accomplice across state lines, that drew in the mail and wire fraud charges, which gets into the federal arena.

Plus, sounds like he misled a bank to indicate he was employed when he wasn't.

And, he's already plead guilty, so it sounds like there is no question of guilt.

Still, possible 50 years for that, and yet the guys that led Bear-Sterns, Goldman Saks etc, walked away without a care in the world (and a huge golden parachute)?   :angry:

He tried to trademark the name for himself IIRC.

Seems to me that this is Bank of America's doing.

They're coming for the MAME Devs next.

Says the guy that, along with Xouchey, defended Dave, even years after the MAME trademark episode.

Try actually understanding the issues for once Jim ... it'll cut down on the stupidity.

I'm sure he will be stopping by here once more.

He was still employed when the application was filled out and submitted.

It's Bank of America.  I have no sympathy for them.
I hope he used the proceeds to pay off smaller creditors (vendors, business partners, credit unions).

I don't have a lot of love for BofA either, but that's not what the USDJ article said.

"Foley had been fired from his job by the time the loan applications were submitted.  Foley admitted that he instructed a co-defendant to contact Countrywide Home Loans to falsely confirm his continued employment, after his employment had been terminated and prior to receiving the funds."

My emphasis.

I do as well.  It should serve as the perfect reminder though that people DO care about commercial distribution of ROM's (although this case had other things going on as well).

It's too bad really because as much as we "debated", we actually agreed on the basic issue of distribution without consent.  I imagine it was a "if you can't beat them... Join them" type of decision he made although I don't know the actual timeline of when this all happened.

If he was smart (and I believe he is), he'd try and lower his sentence by providing information leading to the arrest of others doing the same thing.  Even if he didn't lower his sentence it would make the evil-inside smile a little if he knew someone else was being put in the frying pan.

Ding!  Granted, you don't really plead guilty and THEN start the negotiations... 

Anyone wanna start a betting pool on the length of his sentence?  I'd personally put the over/under at a year.




By sentence, are you saying jail time?  If so, I'll take the under.  I'll guess that he doesn't spend any time, gets a hefty fine, probation and a bunch of community service hours.
Ajax should have been named Warlord, not Swan.

First off, Hoopz is right.

Time served, seven years probation, and a nickel on his back for same/similar.  BofA has to get him back on the streets making restitution payments.

Let's make this interesting.  How about $5?   ;D

Nah, but seriously, I'll take the over.  Any weird BS happens like delayed sentencing or he commits suicide and the bet's off.

In for $5.  Same number I had in mind, Jimmy.  I got under a year and a year is a push.  Suicide is win-win-win.

I'm still more curious about some of the stuff that was supposedly being offered in official packs.

Goal '92 was featured on a number of flyers / adverts.

It's a bootleg.

You can't license a bootleg, there is a mix of hacked code owned by the original manufacturer (from which they don't appear to have any other games licensed either..) and code written by the bootleggers, as well as stolen music / sound effects from another game entirely.

That's not something you can include in a commercial product, period, yet it was.

Furthermore, if you had an official license, you'd likely be supplied with information / resources to emulate the original game / hardware, including information on the protection devices (Seibu Cup Soccer still doesn't work in MAME for this reason)  I actually see very little evidence that the guys doing their emulator software were capable of actually emulating anything from scratch (as in figuring out how things work) tho, so maybe even with original information they would have struggled.  At worst it could have still been better disguised to look like the original tho, for example taking the bootleg patches to the protection and applying them to the original game.

I suspect there is still plenty more dirt to be dug when it comes to Ultracade, Foley and the whole saga.

United States District Court Judge Edward J. Davila allowed Foley’s continued release on a $100,000 bond and ordered him to return to court on April 30, 2011, at 9 a.m. for sentencing. 

2012 date fail.

well, i guess that's why we haven't seen him skulking around

Looking at that plea deal, it reminds me of those individuals who offering Mame Rom burning services.

In respect, wouldn't ebay transactions be considered some type of mail fraud, or at least a conspiracy charge?

Interesting.

Interesting.

The crux of the charge is that he was still using the name Ultracade, which he didn't have the rights to, not that he was selling unlicensed roms.
Customers were defrauded because they purchased a product presented and labeled as Ultracade when in fact it wasn't.
If he had called it something else and put "works with ultracade" on the box, he might have been in the clear as far as the fraud charge goes.

What I'm curious about is who pursued the issue?  It sounds like the deal with Global VR fell through, so who would be upset about him using the Ultracade name.  Maybe the Bank of America lawyers just tried to find everything they could throw at him.

My guess would be the home loan stuff turned bad first and the guy he partnered on that one with rolled over with the other information.  It would be interesting to see what the other two people involved get sentenced with.  If somebody skates free...  >:D

Looking at that plea deal, it reminds me of those individuals who offering Mame Rom burning services.

In respect, wouldn't ebay transactions be considered some type of mail fraud, or at least a conspiracy charge?

Interesting.

The crux of the charge is that he was still using the name Ultracade, which he didn't have the rights to, not that he was selling unlicensed roms.
Customers were defrauded because they purchased a product presented and labeled as Ultracade when in fact it wasn't.
If he had called it something else and put "works with ultracade" on the box, he might have been in the clear as far as the fraud charge goes.

What I'm curious about is who pursued the issue?  It sounds like the deal with Global VR fell through, so who would be upset about him using the Ultracade name.  Maybe the Bank of America lawyers just tried to find everything they could throw at him.

i remember reading someplace that he used the proprietary software (that global now owned after he sold ultracade to them) to generate installation codes for some of the game upgrades he was selling, or something along those lines. his ideal was that they (Global VR) bought rights to the UltraCade name but hadn't done anything with it for like a year, and he was all like" hey i might as well make some dough off this...need to feed my family and all" and made the game packs for ultracde... where he thought "ultracade" had no longer existed since global never did anything with it.

don't forget at this point, Foley was working at global still.

Global found out about Foleys hand in (almost theirs) cookie jar and screamed "rape" so technically it WAS counterfeited software... but (not defending foley here buuuuuut...) some of us know globals propensity for abandoning their projects and leaving their customers hanging... coughallofthemcoughcough i would have thought a company had abandoned it if they didn't finish completing the transaction... but it appeared to persons buying the product that it would have been authorized for use when it wasn't

i think the only reason for globals continuation of the "ultracade/arcade classics" is so they can stick it to foley.

BUT

these new charges have nothing to do with the first set of charges (counterfeit game deal). (well they kinda do) this all had to do with fraudulently obtaining bank loans (by saying he still worked at global after he had been fired for the counterfeit software dealy... actually, it was at about the same time... his getting canned happened to be JUST before the loans had been closed and had to have someone (not from global) call in for him and (fraudulently) verify employment.)

Here's another article summarizing the misdeeds and dooshery of David R. Foley:

http://dougberry.hubpages.com/hub/Ultracade-Founder-David-Foley-Found-Guilty-of-Fraud

Brings back memories of the email battles I had with him back in the RetroBlast days, when he was trying to register MAME as his own trademark and getting every eBay auction with any arcade artwork pulled using fake DCMA claims.

I had several coin-op industry bigwigs personally warn me to avoid having any business dealings with Foley (not that I would have, anyway) - he was toxic even among his "peers".

I actually bought a set of NOS Ultracade artwork at one point for a MAME project that never panned out (just for the irony of it). Don't remember where it came from, but I know I never contributed a penny to that d-bag (excuse the language).

BTW... Hi everybody.

If you're going to that trouble, you might as well covertly video and stream it.

Incidentally, I play an Ultracade today, and was un-impressed with the emulation consistency (under-powered hardware?.....), let alone that you see the boot screen of the PC bios.

And that Dave has his own legal problems.  He has been kicked out of Canada by the courts.  He has an ex-wife and a few kids.  The ex left him when he was staring in his TV show, and child support is based on how much he made then.  But it can't go down (really, the law states that.  because a ton of guys would just get a crap job I guess to stick it to the ex-wife)...  So after a few legal battles, he isn't allowed back in the country or he will go to jail...  All because his wife left him at the moment he made more then he ever will again.

Sad thing.  She/Kids doesn't get anything anymore.  Because there isn't a way to pay just a reasonable amount for an grade b actor after he was getting grade a actor money.

pretty messed up system.

I think he's going to get 2-3 years concurrent but we'll see...

Scheduled to appear before Judge Edward J. Davila this afternoon.



Is this only the beginning or can we expect sentencing today?

It sucks to be him today, but I just can't feel sorry for the guy. He brought it upon himself... Over and over and over. Yeah, it's just video games, but he burned a lot of bridges and (more importantly) broke laws... All the while knowing exactly what he was doing was wrong and choosing to do it anyway.

I know nothing about laws and stuff but if he is sentenced to whatever can we expect some sort of liquidation of the assets?  As much of a ---meecrob--- as he is, some great reproductions were made and I wouldn't mind getting my hands on some.

Are you confusing Dave Foley from Ultracade (and multi-million dollar home financing fraud) and Dave from RAM Controls ?

Dave Foley's biggest asset is the over $1 Million in salary he has been accruing from a company that made less than $50K last year. Wouldn't hold out hope for that if I were him.

Being new to this site...but remembering ultracade when I was looking at build these 5 years ago....what happened?  I mean, what happened around here?

Didn't Ultracade sell CDs full of ROMs and stuff not too long ago?

All that notwithstanding, he's nowhere near the ---steaming pile of meadow muffin--- list level of Dave Adams aka Adam Judd aka Adam Starr.
Every once in a while when an ultracade question popped up on here, he'd post and try to help the person.
I do think he deserves some credit for that.

That second article is funny...especially the last comment:

David Foley you are a lier and a crook. Investors in NanoTech have been looking for you for the past two years. First Bob Dekett gone now you. Phone at the "corp office" just rings, messages left and no one returns calls. All the while you continue to attempt to raise money for NTEK via debentures, for what purpose? Legal fees, mortgage payments, soap on a rope or just putting money together for the prison commissary? Lord knows nothing is happening with Nano. So prior to having your hair braided by your cell mate make sure that your brother or whoever is now running the show at Nano at least answers the phone or I can assure you that you will have more legal problems via the investors in NanoTech. I must admit...you are funny as hell "I did not plead guilty to fraud. I pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit fraud" Thank god you cleared that up.

Drama...happens in every hobby.  It happened in BMX just a few years ago with the "re-birth" of Hutch.

I really just urge you guys to read the legal document that came out in January.  While his two convictions were pretty narrow, he admits to a lot of wrong doing.  The convictions were level 20 and 22, you can take a look at what he's facing here:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_Federal_Sentencing_Guidelines#Sentencing_table

While the press release of the agreement cited a maximum of 50 years, my recollection is that the plea agreement has a maximum of 41 months. I can't seem to find the actual plea agreement anymore.

It is billed quarterly, so if it doesn't add up to $15 in the quarter, the fees are waived.

Sentencing on 5/13.  Let's see if that happens or if it's pushed back even farther.
Ajax should have been named Warlord, not Swan.

OK, so I don't want to read every thread here. But the bottom line is,

So... you are telling me we aren't talking about this guy?

I'm guessing they are hoping that by the time it ACTUALLY goes to trial, they would have forgotten what they were going for.

ROMs in machines that could be put out on the floor by operators/FEC/etc.

Well, the company that bought Ultracade from him salvaged what they could.

EDIT: Every once in a while someone will come across an old Ultracade on site and then take to the internet proclaiming that they've ripped off Hyperspin.  :lol 
Maybe Dave should sue.

The one Ultracade I've seen "on location" was such a pile of crap that I just walked away from it.

Mostly due to neglect - it was just tired and needed to die..

Technically Tempest could be played on a track ball.  Spinners are two way optical.  A typical trackball could be too if you ignored any vertical movement.

I have have also purchased back from Global
VR the domain name from the original company, ULTRACADE.COM.

I've always wondered if he would sue Hyperspin if he still had the rights to Ultracade.

I believe the wager was $5, and my position was that he was going to spend at least a year in prison.  Maybe it was six months.  I'm comfortable with either.

Document labelled 117-1.pdf in your attachment is quite the laugh riot if you need one.  I'd sum it up as "nobody died and I didn't know it was illegal."

He's going to do some serious time.

By sentence, are you saying jail time?  If so, I'll take the under.  I'll guess that he doesn't spend any time, gets a hefty fine, probation and a bunch of community service hours.

Let's make this interesting.  How about $5?   ;D

Nah, but seriously, I'll take the over.  Any weird BS happens like delayed sentencing or he commits suicide and the bet's off.

In for $5.  Same number I had in mind, Jimmy.  I got under a year and a year is a push.  Suicide is win-win-win.

Of course it's PBJ. He's gone full Jim in other threads. >:D

I love the "Oh yeah, I take care of a homeless WWII vet, judge! Don't throw the book at me!" argument in those filings.

Hi, Dave. I know you still read these forums.

So, not wanting to re-live this thread, who has the biggest axe to grind around here?  And are you the real pbj?

AJ

He tried to trademark the name M.A.M.E.
http://tsdr.uspto.gov/#caseNumber=76627578&caseType=SERIAL_NO&searchType=statusSearch

If you believe him, it was to prevent anyone other than MAMEDev from using it.
If you believe MAMEDev, it was so he could either market his own stuff using the MAME name, or destroy MAME because his own Ultracade machines would be worth more without MAME on the scene.

I tend to believe he wanted to stamp out competition.  I cut him some slack for being helpful to Ultracade owners who have posted here with problems.
EDIT: I don't think anyone here has an axe to grind from any personal dealings with him.  This isn't like Dave whatever his real name is at Ram Controls.


The third document lays out pretty plainly how the charges arose.
After taking over sales of Ultracade products, Global VR wondered why the distributors weren't buying game packs so they called them up.
Turns out they were still buying game packs from Dave.  :lol
Fired next day, then they sicked the FBI on him.

Sounds like a fustercluck of a merger where he tried to sneak millions of dollars of debt into the deal without them realizing it until the last minute.

I always suspected pbj of being that Verizon employee in Texas who outsourced his own job to Chinese devs.
He had to delete all his posts to get rid of any time stamps that would have been during work hours.   ;)

I had suspected Jim as being a retired member of Seal Team Six, and he was called on by the government to do "one last mission", which he did, until he realized that he was too old for this ---steaming pile of meadow muffin---, so he came back to us.

I believe the second conviction was something along the lines of pretending he still had the Global VR gig and getting a second mortgage on that basis.

Anything related to MAME is a crock of ---steaming pile of meadow muffin--- best left ignored.

The irony of the whole MAME trademark thing is that it probably isn't even valid anymore.

Unlike copyrights you actually have to actively defend trademarks against abuse if they're to remain valid, and that hasn't been done (at least not in any effective capacity)

If he wasn't actually operating his own not-exactly-legal schemes (which he may or may not soon be paying a heavy price for) I dare say it might have actually been better off in his hands.

He's got a family to support and there's not really a victim here, IMO.  No dispute that kind of wrong doing isn't conducive to society but I certainly won't take much pleasure in seeing him receive a prolonged prison sentence.  It's still kinda funny, though.

You have an excellent sense of humor, friend.

Was riding the clock anyway, so I skimmed parts of that interview.  At one point, if I understood it correctly, he claims they bought up several hundred Nintendo boards and stacked them in a garage so that their ROM counterparts in the Ultracades were legal.  (Setting aside the fact I don't believe him....) Ugh, really?  We're back to THAT argument?  Yeah, no.

the victim is the public trust.  its one thing to be a bootlegger, or a thief, but what he did was to sell his stuff as legal, so the people who are honest, the people who want something legit, something that isnt stolen, something that is legal, would buy from him.

anyone and everyone can steal and use arcade history any way they choose.  his way was to fraudulently pretend to be legit, so people looking for a legit option to mame would pay him for his product.

in my mind he is no better than someone scamming old ladies for investment oppportunities or someone setting up a fraudulent charity operation.  the ONLY reason people bought from him is because they believed he had the ONLY legit license to those games.

this lawsuit he's currently tied up in has to do with claiming he still worked for Global VR when he went to a bank (or banks) to obtain loans, when in fact he was (very) recently let go after the licencing fiasco regarding Ultracade which he had sold to Global VR. (Global found out he was making updates for the software which was now theirs, and was selling them on the side)

so, he's at the bank when the bank wanted to "verify employment", he had them call a friend of his and have him state he was whoever from Global VR and that yes he was working for Global VR. The bank found out about the sham and promptly began proceedings against him.

I spent about three years working as an Underwriting Quality Control person in a "Fraud Detection and prevention" department at a major bank.  I used to catch stuff like this all the time.  Like - daily.  Doing background checks, digging into credit reports, etc.  It was fun but stressful stuff.   People would make paycheck stubs in MS Word and try to pass them off as legit.  Have there brother's girlfriends sounds uncle verify employment that didn't exist.  All sorts of crazy stuff.   Sometimes small loads, sometimes big loans.

But I never saw one person I caught outright committing fraud prosecuted or sued.  He must have really pissed someone off to get them to actually take him to court over it.

In the papers he filed to ask for leniency, he says that the bank never did take issue with it and he still has the loan and has made all payments.
He claims the guy who was in charge at Global VR at the time has a personal vendetta against him and sicked the FBI on him for both selling Ultracade gamepacks and lying about his employment during closing.  I dunno, but that's what is there.

I think its a little bigger than this.

 On a site that posted the relevant information,  it claimed to have called up or emailed certain companies in Japan, asking to see if Foley had negotiated the rights to certain games.  They said No... had never heard of him.

 On that webcast... he mentions that when he couldnt get the rights... he went online to ebay, and bought older PCBs for the roms.   He figured that if he has the PCBs... he should own the rights to the games.  Everyone wants to believe this... but Im not so sure that is the case... most especially when you are re-packaging something commercial for sale.   Imagine trying to sell a used Sega Genesis game in a new bartop arcade box at Sears, without asking Sega...  but just putting the cartridge inside the thing.

 Then to find out on top of the fact most of his games couldnt be used, rendering his business model near useless...  he finds out that his Former is cashing in on his remaining territory.

 Because the IP was overseas, it makes it an International crime...  and because Global VR may not have known that over half their IP was bogus... (and now the info spread all over the net about it)  calling the FBI just may be within bounds.

 Its quite slimy, to say the least.

 
 Ohh, and no, hes not the one behind 4k tvs.  He just managed to capitalize on a MGFs faulty chip, and used another MFGs chip to get his foot in the door.

Is he being sued for copyright infringement?

Has Nintendoh or Sega filled for damages?

You can get away with selling ROM chips if you hot glued them into the cabinets and used mame or Joshua to run the said game as it would be construed as fair use, especially if the board was deemed obsolete and the ROMS was considered as backups.

Besides we have gone down this route before.  Foley is being pinched for securing loans under false pretenses.

Unless you have found some evidence that contradicts this, and should be reported to the necessary authorities handling Mr Foley's case.

He has never let the facts slow down his opinions.  I actually bothered to read the links from the first 2 pages, and the charges were for using the ultracade name and selling items as official UltraCade items when he didnt have the rights to, and for lying on bank loan applications. Nothing I read specified copyright infringement of ROMs.

Sorry, but I dont have time to read legal jargon, or for that matter, every snipit on the net.

 I was basing my speculations on the Former things Ive read in a past article.  One that contained a lot more of the factual occurrences.  Whether or not they can be made into a legal claims, thats another story.

 As for the Fair Use claim.. thats still highly suspect.   As Ive said.. you would never get the green light to sell used sega genesis systems with a cartridge in it.. packaged in an arcade shell.. in a RETAIL outlet..  without getting proper licensing permissions.

 If you wanted to ebay the thing... then sure,  you could probably do it without issue.   (Maybe not with Namco... cause anything with Pacman on it... and they go Berzerk)    Probably ok to do it in a arcade... because nobody is gona peek inside anyways.  (although, there are no arcades anymore)

 Im pretty sure Fair Use is limited to personal properties.. rather than commercial business ventures.  But Im no lawyer.   Honestly, Im surprised that Nice Carvings hasnt gotten copyright notices on their reproductions.  As far as Ive heard, many print shops wont copy / print things that have known copyrights... such as Disney characters.

i see company logos of like, Disney characters...comic book characters...etc and nobody is knocking down their doors with cease and desist notices. You know why? they aren't stirring the pot. they aren't trying to make money because of these characters.

i do however think that when companys capitalize on the character, IE, using the character itself to make money, they chance having the ---steaming pile of meadow muffin--- hit the fan.

in my mind he is no better than someone scamming old ladies for investment oppportunities or someone setting up a fraudulent charity operation.  the ONLY reason people bought from him is because they believed he had the ONLY legit license to those games. 



this lawsuit he's currently tied up in has to do with claiming he still worked for Global VR when he went to a bank (or banks) to obtain loans, when in fact he was (very) recently let go after the licencing fiasco regarding Ultracade which he had sold to Global VR. (Global found out he was making updates for the software which was now theirs, and was selling them on the side)

so, he's at the bank when the bank wanted to "verify employment", he had them call a friend of his and have him state he was whoever from Global VR and that yes he was working for Global VR. The bank found out about the sham and promptly began proceedings against him.

I spent about three years working as an Underwriting Quality Control person in a "Fraud Detection and prevention" department at a major bank.  I used to catch stuff like this all the time.  Like - daily.  Doing background checks, digging into credit reports, etc.  It was fun but stressful stuff.   People would make paycheck stubs in MS Word and try to pass them off as legit.  Have there brother's girlfriends sounds uncle verify employment that didn't exist.  All sorts of crazy stuff.   Sometimes small loads, sometimes big loans.

But I never saw one person I caught outright committing fraud prosecuted or sued.  He must have really pissed someone off to get them to actually take him to court over it.

In the papers he filed to ask for leniency, he says that the bank never did take issue with it and he still has the loan and has made all payments.
He claims the guy who was in charge at Global VR at the time has a personal vendetta against him and sicked the FBI on him for both selling Ultracade gamepacks and lying about his employment during closing.  I dunno, but that's what is there.

You know - I had a few VPs in the company make similar comments.  "Every Identity thieves make loan payments"  and other comments on that line.  Money is money to that bank (now out of business).

i see company logos of like, Disney characters...comic book characters...etc and nobody is knocking down their doors with cease and desist notices. You know why? they aren't stirring the pot. they aren't trying to make money because of these characters.

really?  there are schools around here that have been forced to paint over Disney characters (provided to them by charity workers) due to trademark / copyright issues after getting attention in local news stories*.  Even if it's Snow White / Alice in Wonderland / Cinderalla you have to be very careful that they're not the Disney styled versions.

Disney is one the worst when it comes to this kind of thing over both trademarks and copyright and like to make it sound like they're doing you a favor by not just taking you to court.

The game companies are by comparison absolute angels, even EA / Blizzard.

* I have a feeling the papers contacted Disney hoping for some positive comments about the work done only to have it backfire completely.

I looked into trademark stuff (albeit north of the border) and one thing that was abundantly clear is that if you don't defend your trademark at every opportunity than it can be forfeited or at least legally challenged.  So while I dislike all those disney moments where they go after little guys, I get why they do it.  Failure to do so would open them up to all sorts of legal challenges by other "dave foley" types who try and get away with as much crap as they can.  I gave up on trademarking a name for no other reason than I didn't want to waste my time policeing it--it wasn't that valuable..

Just to clarify for those who don't have the time to read the stuff, he's never been charged with any kind of trademark or copyright infringement when it comes to the original IP holders of the games and actually did have licensing agreements with some of those companies.

He plead guilty to conspiracy to commit mail and wire fraud.   The fraud being that he sold gamepacks for the ultracade as being produced by Ultracade Technologies when he no longer owned the company or had rights to the name.  Global VR noticed that Ultracade gamepacks weren't selling, so they called up the distributors and found out Dave was still selling gamepacks himself instead of directing people to the new owner (and his employer), Global VR.
He was terminated immediately.

In the papers filed by his lawyer, he claims the sale to Global VR never officially went through so he's only guilty of using the name of a company which is no longer in existence.  On the flip side, he also argues that he ended up paying Capcom royalties that  should have been Global VR's responsibility based on the sale agreement.  :lol

That's a good summation, but I believe it was slightly more complicated.  If I recall correctly, he was selling the gamepacks through a third party on E-bay.  Some guy out of New Jersey? 

I can distinctly remember all the "our prices won't be beat!  at least $100 cheaper than other distributors!" stuff.

IANAL, but if commercial infringing activities are observed, I don't believe there is any need for the IP holders to make a complaint in order for proceedings to begin.  It is a criminal statute, so there is no need for the JD to get permission.  It would probably have to be fairly egregious to happen without their involvement, but not absolutely necessary.  Of course, once such proceedings began, and the IP holders notified, few if any would be turning a blind eye to the situation.

Probably not relevant in this particular case, but the earlier remark about it seemed a bit off.

That would be because IP infringement is a civil offense and thus would be subject to civil litigation.  This is not a "charges" in this context.  If we're talking about being charged in this context it is because they determined it was being used to commit commercial fraud when he was selling it.  Just using someone else's IP is not criminal.  It is civil.

Bank fraud, on the other hand, is a felony.  That is very criminal and thus charges were filed.  Foley is facing severe criminal charges and also a heavy load of civil litigation.

It's very important to keep those two concepts separate.  It destroys the whole discussion to mix them.

It's straight across the board.  There's no way he has enough PCBs to affect the overall market.  Especially in your general area of b/w and really old games.  That's way outside of the Ultracade game list.

He last logged in Dec 18th, when we thought the sentencing would be.
I'm curious if he logged in because he was tempted to post in this thread.

It doesn't mean that he doesn't visit us without being logged in.

You get sentencing appeals even when you plead guilty?  Why tf plead guilty unless it's part of a deal in the first place.  I need to find out who his atty. is so I never ever mistakenly use them.  Perhaps some mandatory minimum or 3 strikes or something in play. 

Sadly I'm a bit surprised that people are looking at time for fairly rinky dink fraud of this level.  Hopefully its not taking up room needed for some murderer.

You get sentencing appeals even when you plead guilty?  Why tf plead guilty unless it's part of a deal in the first place.  I need to find out who his atty. is so I never ever mistakenly use them.  Perhaps some mandatory minimum or 3 strikes or something in play. 

Sadly I'm a bit surprised that people are looking at time for fairly rinky dink fraud of this level.  Hopefully its not taking up room needed for some murderer.

That's the American way nowadays..people like this get years in jail..while the guy on his 5th DWI gets a fine..  Hell you could kill someone while intoxicated in your car and never serve time.

Didn't feel like doing any real work for the last hour of the day, so I tried to dig up any new info on this.

Seems he avoided surrendering on March 27th by playing games.

That couldn't have bought too much time, but I can't find anything more recent.

If his appeal goes through, I wonder if I can get my cash back from PBJ?

He's still active on Twitter, so he either got his surrender delayed or they sent him to Club Fed.

Maybe I shouldn't have spent that $5....

His appeal was recently denied.  2 years in prison, 3 years of supervised release, $5,000 fine.

I will rest easy with your $5.

Funny story on this:
  One of the people convicted on this whole deal was the owner of Automated Services here in CT.
I have a comercial customer that gets parts from them.

The other day my customer call the owner Mike (who had already done his jail time for this matter) to try and get Global VR parts and Mike told him Global VR is no longer in business.

Of course as it turns out, they are very much in business but they won't do any dealings with the guy who tried to rip them off.

He didn't fake his loan, he gave out in inaccurate information, so a mere technicality.  I did plead guilty and he is having a nice time there.  Maybe he will make up a game about the experience.
If I had only one wish, it would be for three more wishes.

I wouldn't even say that.  He lost his job just before closing and went through with closing. (which involved signing papers saying that the loan app info was accurate)

Even school playgrounds have fences.

Hmm... not how I remember it but I'm not slogging through those documents again. 

Should be interesting to see how long it takes for his blog tone to switch from upbeat to defeated.  I give it another week or so.

I thought that I would have access to email and the web, and that while removed from my family, I would be able to continue my career while incarcerated.  I had no idea how wrong I was.

While my institution is quite progressive, allowing me access to email and letters, I am not allowed access to the internet in any way.

I assume he's emailing the blog posts to the guy that owns the website.

I wish I could tell you that David fought the good fight, and the Sisters let him be. I wish I could tell you that but prison is no fairy-tale world. He never said who did it, but we all knew. Things went on like that for awhile... prison life consists of routine, and then more routine. Every so often, David would show up with fresh bruises. The Sisters kept at him, sometimes he was able to fight 'em off, sometimes not. And that's how it went for Andy...er I mean Dave  - that was his routine. I do believe those first two years were the worst for him, and I also believe that if things had gone on that way, this place would have got the best of him.

Anyone else keeping up with his blog?  It's great for spiking your blood pressure.

"I’m lucky that my work day is over by 11am, allowing me to take classes, work out, and enjoy most of the day. I get to work with my friends, and we are always busy so the time flys by. "

"Last night i completed my 42nd book. "

"I have just completed my 50th book since my arrival."

There's got to be a downside to this, right?

Does it count as a book if it has fewer words than the "See Spot run" series?

I check in every once in a while.  The health updates make me jealous.
I'm here working a stressful sedentary job that's sending me to an early grave and he's spending every day reading, listening to music, and working out.
It sounds like a relaxing atmosphere.
