Criminal Law Questions? Ask a Criminal Lawyer.
Thank you for your response. I understand what you are saying, but my real issue is related to any laws or statutes that may exist that prevent a receiver from auctioning an illegal product, such as I sited, for example a fake Rolex watch.
I realize this is somewhat of a specific issue, but I need to decide at this point if I will file en banc, so I was hoping to find some type of statute I could point to.
I have been acting pro se in the case as I could not afford an attorney to handle it.
No, what I really want, and as I argued in the appeals court is that the plaintiff in the case should have gone to third circuit to get the domain names, as the FTC has pursued the issue of illegal use of these specific domain names since 2001 in two seperate cases filed against me in the third circuit.
Of course, the plaintiff wants to avoid the third circuit at all costs as it means he then will have to contend with the FTC, and the finding by the third circuit that the use of the domain names violates the FTC act.
No, I am the defendant. I owned the domain names and the domain names were sought after for a debt I owe.
I understand what you are saying. This is what for the most part I had argued in the district and appeals court. That the FTC had contested the use of the domain names and the third circuit agreed with their contentions, therefore the proper jurisdiction is in the third district.
The idea of putting me in a criminal liability trap might be valid and something I would have argued but, the court has avoided that by not personally ordering me to give the domain names to the court, but by ordering the domain name registrars to give the domain names to the court, or the court appointed receiver.
Ultimate control of domain names is in the hands of the domain name registrars, such as Network Solutions Inc., not the individual who uses the domain names, such as myself or others.
I appreciate your input on this, I realize it's an unusual area to discuss.
I was really hoping to get some information related directly to the question I asked concerning receivership, that is "are there some type of statutes or laws that prevent a reciever from auctioning an illegal product, such as for example a fake Rolex watch."
That would be in the state of California.
I realize this may not be exactly your area of the law with which you are involved.
Yeah, I'm really sorry, but I think I need something more oriented to someone who has handled a recievership.
I really appreciate your replys, but I was looking for something a little different in the responses, more directly involved to a receiver.
You mean restate it, right? I know it gets grazy sometimes.
Thank you, XXXXX XXXXX it and thanks for your responses. I'm sorry it didn't go quite the way I may have hoped.
