    I was kind of waiting for someone else to post it up, but it looks like Infinium has just about totally folded:

    As Larry Flint would say, "Onward and upward, Tim. Literally."

    If he runs his company with the same foresight that email indicates he precipitated this lawsuit, Infinium should really take off. *cough*

    I expect a thesis-length rant from WaltC on this topic. 8)

    Thank god that's over (well mostly), HardOCP was starting to look like CourtTV or Larry King every other week. :?

    I am glad HardOCP won though; freedom of speech and all that.

    Doh! Real quick, I gotta credit Zol at Elite Bastards with the first post on this

    Why else do you think I posted it? :twisted: :wink:

    BTW-From the thread at EB some fun quoting 'tween me and you:

    Kyle WILL push for the legal fees, I'm sure of it.

    I agree, I just think Infinium will be bankrupt and out of business before Kyle's legal representation is able to recoup the money. Of course they could always try going after Tim Roberts personally, but that only complicates the legalities.

    Don't get me wrong: I hope Kyle gets back whatever he's spent or owes defending his site.

    Heh, I kind of like the idea that Kyle is going to bankrupt Infinium and mebbe Tim Roberts personally just by going after what he is entitled to...I think it'll play out well for him. ;)

    A big THANK YOU to all you guys that have stood behind us on this issue for the last year. It feels good to be out from under this finally, and doubly good to walk away with a solid moral victory. Again, thank you all.

    I'm still boggling over a website *having* an extra 200k laying around to spend on something like this. Or is that just the bill (i.e. hasn't been paid) and they are counting on getting it back by judgement?

    Nope, just being me. I knock the man enough when I don't like what he's doing/saying, I see no reason not to compliment him on a job well done. :p

    Real classy for a ceo to quote a pornographer. :lol: He managed to misspell his name too.
    This guy sounds like a real tool glad you stood up to his bullying.

    Reading that so called "leaked" e-mail from Mr Roberts i feel compelled to post & bemoan the demise of the correct use of the English language.

    Are you sure it wasn't written by a six year old?

    Oh yeah, I'm eagerly awaiting Phantom to ship. Not planning on buying one; I just want the laughs I'll get from providing links to resellers/suppliers .... in the (H) forums. :twisted: :lol: :lol: :lol:

    Hi FrgMstr, if you truly believed in your position I salute you. You may have to put your legal costs down to "The Price of Freedom" however. :? :?

    Well, they DO sell mouse pads too you know... Maybe there's a ton of cash to be made there? ;)

    As for the victory itself, I've not really been one of Kyle's biggest fans (he's got a tendency to post rather insensitive things at times, like implying dyslectic people are stupid as he did a couple years ago which kinda pissed me off), but I'm glad he won this time. Tim Roberts looks like a grade-A scumbag and liar, and to have him get away with squashing someone for reporting public knowledge would have meant wronging all that is good and decent.

    Anyway, I'm amazed the obvious scam that is Infinum hasn't collapsed in on itself already. Maybe that stock pump-and-dump scheme gave them a short extra lease of life, who knows.
