Judge Judy Lawsuit

I've Been Jacked on the Internet!

EXCLUSIVE

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.

Filmed in front of a PAID audience, The audience is cued to laugh, etc. Both litigants are paid to be there. The show pays whatever judgement is decided by Judge Judy. Is this really a reality show? These faux court shows are a joke.

I love Judge Judy, she keeps people in line, like a court room should be. Too often today, everyone thinks that they can disrespect authority. What has become of what some people think is all right to do at any time. Keep up the good work Judge Judy.

Judge Judy is one of the smartest people that I've ever known. She earns her money legally. She doesn't mind saying things that all other legal experts seem to be afraid to say. (example) A woman or man is out partying and is still getting our government money. She points out that instead of staying home and taking care of the kids they want to take the money that we give and go out and party. If said man or woman wants to have children, then they shoud have to pay for them....NOT US. If they can't afford kids, then they should stop breeding like rats and take responsiblity. Obama seems to be all for US paying for kids that we did not elect to have. Hell, he encourages more breeding programs. I elected not to have children, why should I pay for others kids???

If Judge Judy is a show, I can accept it as a show like I would Abbott and Costello, but if she claims to be trying real cases with non-actors, then her show is truly a Comedy.
Having been in buisness for 47 yr's and to small claims court many times over for various resons,
I would not stand before her and let her downgrade me as a human being whether wrong or right, a true small claims court is nothing like the Comedy
this Woman puts on the TV media and calls it legitimate small claims court procedure, she is nothing short of a self centered, self gratifying
and a black eye to the small claims court procedure.

Frankly, I try to catch that show as often as I can. It's the only place on TV where justice is meted out, and I appreciate it. The appointed and elected judges in this country would do well by taking a lesson from Judge Judy by copying her superb interviewing techniques.

I scrolled down about 15, or so, comments, and my opinion is that a good many of you are ignorant twits. Most of you can't spell properly, first off. But in America there's a segment of law called intellectual property rights. Big Ticket owns that show. If they wanted to post episodes on You Tube, they'd do it. You guys are the primary reason that this country is in the shape it's in (next to it's politicians.)

The show is broadcast over the air, no one who uses an antenna to get tv reception pays to see it, no one pays to see it on youtube so what is the problem?

Can't Big Ticket just contact YouTube and have the video removed on the grounds of copyright infringement?

Did any of you "people" that have resulted in name calling actually read the article??? JJ HAVE NOT filed the lawsuit, the producers of her show have....No where in the story has anything being said by her...this is what the producers are saying...Next time read the entire story instead of just the headline..

There are tons of JJ eps on YouTube. If they're going after one person, they need to go after everyone.

If OUR courts acted the way she conducts herself, many would have grounds for appeals, due to her Bias attitude.
In addition,the Bailiff's gesture of beckoning some people forward with his hand and fingers, is somewhat very annoying

Looks like somebody put a jack on her face, and her voice is like fingernails on a chalkboard.

No one continues on a show for so long if it's not a hit or make that kind of money. What's wonderful about 90% of these negative comments is that it proves you're still watching and love it. She's FAIR! all over the country they're 1000s of people who act like her everyday! and that's why you love her because you just wish once you could tell your boss the same thing.
