I’ve maintained for more than a year that settlement is 💯 dependent on whether the @SECGov must turn over the Hinman speech drafts, edits, emails and comments thereof.
Other than having to produce the emails and drafts, another event that could facilitate a settlement is if the SEC receives a disfavorable decision in the @LBRYcom case.

I’ve become more convinced that there will be no settlement unless one or both of those things happen.
First of all, my opinion regarding settlement is no better or more relevant than anyone else’s opinion. The fact that I’m amicus counsel places me in no better position to speculate than anyone else. I’m just sharing my observations b/c I’m receiving many emails and DMs asking.

@GaryGensler has the @Ripple #XRP case pending in the 2nd Circuit in SDNY, the @LBRYcom #LBC case in the 1st Circuit in N.H., and the @dragonchain #DRGN case in the 9th Circuit in Wa. He is now also suing individuals for selling 9 tokens as unregistered securities in Wahi case.
In the Ripple case the SEC has declared all #XRP, including #XRP traded in the secondary market independent of Ripple, securities. The token itself is a security per se.
In the LBRY case the SEC argued utility is irrelevant and even if 90% of the token holders acquired #LBC for non-investment use, if one person expected a profit all LBC are securities.

LO SCHIFO DELLO SCHIFO. @fdragoni è questa che speri che vinca per evitare di far vincere il PD? Cosa cambia se sia la Meloni che Letta fanno parte di @AspenInstitute ? @NONVOTONONPAGO #IONONVOTO #IONONPAGO

Giorgia Meloni supera l'esame Cernobbio. E lo fa a pieni voti. L'intervento del presidente di Fratelli d'Italia, in testa nei sondaggi, era
decisamente il più atteso tra quelli dei leader politici al Forum Ambrosetti. E chi preconizzava una Meloni a disagio a confronto con i cosiddetti «poteri forti» deve riconsiderare le proprie posizioni. Perché Meloni non solo ribadisce l'impostazione data a tutta la campagna

As I said during @CryptoLawUS’s livestream after watching the SEC 🆚 LBRY Summary Judgment argument below is my single biggest criticism and observation along with direct quotes from the hearing.
The Judge 👨‍⚖️ asked the SEC’s lawyer:

“Do you concede that there is what I think LBRY is calling a consumptive use for #LBC?”

SEC Lawyer:

“We do, your honor. Not for the entire time of the offering.”

“When does something that has a consumptive use and that LBRY would say is a commodity shade into a security?”

SEC Lawyer:

“Well, your Honor, I first would say you don’t start with the presumption that something is a commodity. You apply the Howey test first.”

@LBC @NickFerrariLBC

Thnx 4opp 2talk abt current #Airport #Airline #Travel chaos; not just UK prob; it extends across #Europe

Many reasons & blame abound but the return to normality was always going 2B problematic.

#Brexit transferred 261/2004 Rights; @CAA_UK should enforce!
2. #Travel? #Holidays? #COVID19? @LBC

Key Q: @GOVUK claim they'd warned #TravelIndustry, concerned that they: "Seriously oversold flights & holidays relative to their capacity".

@grantshapps publish meetings, minutes & warnings; let's see the detail!......
3. #Travel? #Holidays? #COVID19? @LBC @NickFerrariLBC

....It is this use of language, by all parties, that's designed to present their position that creates confusion in #Consumer understanding and indeed their expectations

It's all very good having high expectations, but...

Maajid is going on about Russian ships in UK waters, "as a remainer". Saying control of our waters is "non-negotiable".

Russia isn't in the EU. We're not in the EU.

How do you think Brexit affects our position vis a vis Russia, stronger or weaker? 🤦
Fishing isn't 1% of GDP as everyone on this show keeps saying, it's 0.1%. But hey, what's factor of 10 at this point?

Oh God a racist just phoned in. I can't deal with this. #lbc

"I don't think you belong here Maajid, I think you're a subversive globalist".

Everyone on this show is mad or worse.

"You're not British, you're a Pakistani man".

Peter Foster hits nail on head: #lbc

UK wants to move away from EU regs, but also wants an FTA.

No tariffs right off coast in a UK that wants to deregulate is a clear threat to the EU SM.

We're no longer an EU state, so EU obligation is to its members.

We were warned.
"Johnson doesn't want to do a deal that he'll regret in 2 years".

I'm not sure Johnson thinks he'll be there in 2 years? He might do, he's such a narcissist.

"The reality of course is that the UK will have to negotiate with the EU over fish, FOREVER." #lbc

Phew, good thing THAT one was explained to British people last December! Otherwise they might have voted the wrong way...oh.

Philip Rycroft, probably happy to be *former* DeXEU.
Now it's David Davis saying all this is predictable. #lbc


Jesus Christ.
"The first thing to remember is this is about Democracy".

Says Davis, with no irony at all.

Alok Sharma seems confused if its 100k or 100M £, that you have to bring in to avoid quarantine.

There's quite alok of difference. ;)

Leaving aside the absolute health insanity of this policy and the terrible politics.

I'm having fun seeing @devisridhar 's reactions to this story. She's right of course. The only question for me is are they deliberately outraging people here, or are they (Govt) just crazy?
The "good" news is you can be bringing in a tan, a bad t-shirt, half a cup of sand and a raging case of the 'rona - you still don't have to quarantine in the UK.

It's never been enforced at all.

Eight minutes was all it took to expose the sheer hypocrisy of #MaajidNawaz. Beware cunningly crafted rhetoric of the #RegressiveLiberal masquerading as a moderate, while using extremist 'control debate & block dissent' tactics to further an overtly rightwing agenda. We see you. ImageImage
You do not need to listen long to #MaajidNawaz's @LBC show to discern his tactics: use of sophistry and belligerent questioning of anyone who dares to disagree with him. Derail any opposition with his 'answer the question I put to you' tactic on the radio, and block on Twitter.
#MaajidNawaz clearly uses rhetorical techniques honed during his days as an Islamist extremist to shut down any dissent - cleverly controling @LBC debate with his 'answer my question or cut off' favorite, or preventing any questioning on Twitter by insta-blocking any dissenters

The #UKGovernment Torture Report

This is a very short overview of what the #UKAuthorities have done in the case.

#PraiseTheLORD #PraiseGod #Borisjohnson #Downingstreet #PritiPatel #UKParliament #Dailymail
In 2005, I set up a business selling CDs, namely mixtape CDs after graduating from Uni.

In 2006, my home was raided & my business was stopped. They said the CDs I was selling were in breach of copyright.
It was a complete shock as the exact same CDs I was selling were prevalent on most high streets and supermarkets. They were selling in their thousands in places such as #Tesco & #HMV. And #Woolworths were the actual UK Distributor of these CDs.

Maybe James would like to explain to listeners why radio station @LBC blocked me years ago? I'm a child sex abuse survivor/campaigner. My tweets are clean and calm. Only speak out to help other survivors come forward. #NoMoreSilence #ThursdayThoughts
Maybe @LBC would like to get ex-MP David Mellor back onto their show to ask him about this meeting he says he can't remember attending? Did he also ''forget'' any follow ups? @mrjamesob
@InquiryCSA #LBC
We live in a world where vast majority of child sex abuse survivors took the horrors to their graves. The world is finally changing and survivors are coming forward in bucket loads. Good for them. Never let anyone silence you. Speaking out, helps others do the same.

The #UKGovernment #Torture Report. Instead of addressing it, they keep trying to frame us. We want answers! @10DowningStreet

To read the full thread (draft at this stage as 4 more years of frame ups need to be added)…

#bbcnews #royalfamily @metpoliceuk
The short outline version is as below in this thread. It's still quite long because it started in 2006 & the UK Authorities, mainly the #MetPolice, have invested a lot of time & resources in trying to get rid of this problem by hook or by crook
#bbcnews #royalfamily
It started with the #MetPolice being caught out falsifying paperwork - a search warrant. When caught out they tried to frame me for a crime I did not commit. #bbcnews #royalfamily #Metpoliceuk

After the #MetPolice tried & failed to frame me & after ex #MetPoliceUK turned private investigators @Surelock_ tried & failed to frame me & my mum, attempt number 3 was #EE & #UKMail. I had never used @EE but they made me their customer

#SwitchtoO2 #o2 #Vodafone #Three #LBC
#EE said I had ordered mobile phones & sim cards & #UKMail said they had delivered them to me (with me showing my passport) at home. I did neither. I didn't order any mobiles & I didn't receive any mobiles. It was a complete stitch up

More Old Bailey Sophistry from Codpiece Cox admitting that in order that today's vote is NOT an attempt to repeat #MV2 (to comply with Speaker Bercow's re-iteration of 1604 convention) it is also NOT a #MV in sense of #EUWA18 Section 13.1.b

#BBCpc #EUWAdebate #VictoriaLIVE #LBC
Attempt by Codpiece Cox to scare House into voting in a #MeaninglessVote for #WA (only) solely to secure the offered (actually only technical) extension of #BrexitDay from Apr 12 to May 22 sans guarantee of any other extension. Sophistry.

#BBCpc #EUWAdebate #VictoriaLIVE #LBC
Of course, if the House falls for Codpiece Cox's scare tactics, none of this will figure in future utterances by #TheresaMay's #Brexihadis - the headlines will scream 'Parliament approves #Brexit arrangements' (sans qualification or caveat).

Turn on the radio to hear multi-multi millionaire Jacob Rees-Mogg explaining to Nick Ferrari why poor people aren't poor. #lbc
In that weird accent
Apparently only "absolutely poor" people are poor. Relative poverty doesn't count. Or something. Relative poverty is when you can't get that second footman - or a new chaise longue for the east wing

Just heard @NickFerrariLBC on @LBC talking about the #BDS attempt to ask @BBC to boycott @Eurovision

The artists know that the BBC will never boycott the Eurovision in Israel - that's not the point of their letter.

A thread -
#BDS works by distorting the conversation. The artists wrote the letter so people will talk about it. Nick Ferrari - a solid guy - holds a discussion on whether or not the BBC should be politicised. To boycott or not boycott? BDS gets its airtime on a key radio station.
BDS is not a trial - it is a punishment. So the question becomes should the BBC punish Israel. Yes or no? A long list of other nations are mentioned - all deserving of punishment. Qatar, China, Russia. If we don't punish them - why punish Israel - see where this is going wrong?

This all started because the #MetPolice & #LBRUT couldn't do their day jobs properly & decided to take the law into their own hands. It started as a small cover up 12 years ago but has turned into British State Persecution.

#Skynews #BBCNews #DailyMail #Guardian #Euronews
My company was raided. It should have been a straightforward matter. But the #MetPolice & #LBRUT forgot to seize my computer & came back to do a 2nd raid. The search warrant didn't permit a second entry, however, #LBRUT entered unlawfully

#Guardian #Telegraph #DailyMail #GMB #UK
Complaints were then made to my MP #VinceCable. He liaised with the #Metpolice & #LBRUT. And then weeks later, the search warrant was completely changed & was passed off as the search warrant executed on the day of the raids.

The truth about Brexit, the "EU is punishing us" narrative & what "no deal" actually means... (1/19)

The EU isn't punishing the UK for Brexit. We are punishing ourselves. Losing all the benefits of EU membership IS punishment. Just like no longer being able to use the fitness equipment or the weights is punishment for quitting the local gym. 2/19
You might well put on weight because you cancelled your gym membership. But you wouldn't turn around and say "Hey, the gym's punishing me for leaving by making me fat!" That's the consequence of losing your gym membership, not the fault of the gym. 3/19

It's a criminal offence to falsifying a legal instrument. But if the #MetPolice / #LBRUT do it, then there is not even an investigation. 12 years of silence. Evidence to prove it -

Welcome to the #Metpolice who also changed & falsified my arrest details. Have a look at the evidence here as it's all easy to prove & that's why it's never addressed
