Judge Judy Lawsuit

I've Been Jacked on the Internet!

1017-judge-judy-show

The people who bring you "Judge Judy' have just filed a lawsuit, claiming evildoers have been posting episodes of her show on YouTube ... and now she wants a non-TV judge to lay down the law.

Judy has the most popular show in daytime ... it's been that way for 3 years, since Oprah said bye bye.  Here's how big -- 9 million daily viewers.

The company that produces the show -- Big Ticket Television -- gets an enormous amount of money for the show, so the idea that someone is stealing it and not paying a dime has them royally pissed off.

As for the culprit -- his name is Ignacio De Los Angeles.  Ignacio dared to post an episode from 2006 on YouTube.  Big Ticket told him to take it down, but Ignacio ignored. 

Big Ticket wants the judge to use a can of whoopass on Ignacio, Judge Judy style.

It's not as if there are any plans to release the show on DVD. It would really be tough for BTP to prove any damages as the owner of the program. They're not suffering any losses.

She has got to be kidding.

The fact that people WANT to watch the show only helps her.

Now am convinced the Lady is a total idiot.

SHE should post her shows online, then run the ads she controls and then the people that WANT to watch will be able to anytime, on her portal, her sponsors.

While the argument isn't identical, it is parallel and this worked so well for Metallica, one can only wonder what Judy Screwbee Doo is thinking.

She's already the #1 paid syndicated show, what else is there to get? She makes more than anyone one else in her field or many others.

This is an over reach she will likely regret.

She has every right but it would be a pity not to find JJ on Youtube.

You can put on robes bitch but that doesn't make you a judge. You are not in a courtroom... you are an actress playing a role on a TV sound stage. You are a mediator and both parties agree to abide by your decision. That doesn't make you a judge.. that just makes you a narrow-minded, racist, sexist, opinionated on everything when you know very little, old Jewish broad. You are smug, intolerant, proud to be uneducated in popular culture, and willing to offer conjecture when you needed facts. I look forward to the day that either they yank you off the air or you die... doesn't matter to me which one comes first. In the meantime, stop CLAIMING TO BE A JUDGE, stop CLAIMING THAT YOU WORK WITHIN SOME JURISDICTION, stop pretending to be more than a lawyer acting in the entertainment industry... you are the same thing as Harvey.

I am or should say WAS as of this moment a HUGE Judge Judy fan. Has the posting of an episode(s) hurt them financially in any way? Hurt the viewership in any way?! I'm all for capitalism, but this is Capitalism at it's WORSE! I hope they LOSE!

there has always been something about this arogant woman that really bothers me, and am sure bothers others. she must have photos of a producer or kept their kids out of jail to even have a show.....she has no talent......made millions off of not having talent.....basically nothing better than a 2 bit hussie

Judge J has more money than God and should be ashamed of herself for going after a u-Tube video. She continually claims ignorance of the whole digital world so what is she doing complaining because someone is posting her rants on a website?
