How the feds stopped a Porsche-driving trademark fraudster

The mastermind of a years-long fraudulent trademark scam that federal authorities dubbed as "one of the more sophisticated, elaborate, and premeditated operations" they had ever seen has been sentenced to eight years in prison after pleading guilty to fraud.

In addition, on Monday, a federal judge in Los Angeles also sentenced Artashes Darbinyan to pay over $1.5 million in restitution. US District Judge Stephen V. Wilson additionally ordered that Darbinyan’s two co-conspirators serve 18 and 24 months in prison, with restitution orders ranging from $1.04 to $1.2 million each.

Darbinyan’s scheme involved setting up a company that he called the “Trademark Compliance Office” and another called “Trademark Compliance Center.” Beginning in September 2013, he sent out unsolicited, official-looking (but fake) invoices to over 100,000 unsuspecting businesses. The letter, complete with a return envelope, would ask for a $385 “processing fee” promising trademark registration and monitoring services that did not exist. The return address was one of a few cities in and around Washington, DC. This gave the letter the veneer of legitimacy.

New Godzilla movie promises a radically different direction for the original kaiju

Ars Technica - August 22, 2017 - 10:00pm

The first trailer for the anime Godzilla: Monster Planet, coming to you on Netflix later this year.

A new Godzilla flick from Toho Studios is always cause for celebration, but Godzilla: Monster Planet is a next-level treat for kaiju and science fiction fans. The first in a planned three-movie anime series, Monster Planet takes the Big G in a bold new direction: the deep future.

The tireless fans at Tokusatsu Network have provided a quick translation of the film's premise, which reinvents the Godzilla mythos just as much as Shin Godzilla did last year. The series begins with the premise that the kaiju menace has gotten so terrible by the late 20th century that humans have to leave the planet. So, in 2048, an AI "managed under the central government" picks a group of humans to board a generation ship bound for the Tau Ceti system.

Unfortunately, the planets orbiting Tau Ceti turn out to be uninhabitable. Soon, political infighting breaks out on the generation ship. Some humans want to return to Earth, while others think it will be too dangerous. Finally, a group of "Earth Returnists," led by protagonist Haruo, forces the remnants of the human species to pilot the failing generation ship home.

Jury awards $417M to woman who says she got cancer from talc in baby powder

A Los Angeles jury awarded a woman a $417 million verdict yesterday. The jury found that Johnson & Johnson failed to adequately warn users of the cancer risks of the talc in its baby powder.

The jury's 9-3 vote to hold J&J liable for not warning Eva Echeverria about cancer risks is a huge blow to the company, which is facing thousands of such claims across the country. The verdict consists of $70 million in compensatory damages and $347 million in punitive damages, according to Reuters.

No clear link connects talcum powder to ovarian cancer. Some case-control studies, based on asking women who have ovarian cancer about their history, have found a slightly increased risk. But as the American Cancer Society notes, those kinds of studies can be biased because they rely on a person's memory of talc use years after the fact.

Woman: My Uber driver went wrong way, I said something, he pushed me out

A California woman has sued Uber, alleging that her driver pushed her out of the moving car following her demand to be let out when the driver refused to take the most direct route to her destination.

The lawsuit—which was filed in Ventura County Superior Court on Monday—is strikingly similar to other lawsuits that have been filed against the company in recent years. Earlier this month, we reported on a New Jersey case in which unsafe driving apparently led to a car accident that left one woman seriously injured.

In the California case, Katherine Conner hailed an Uber to take her from one part of the city of Ventura to another—a route that she was familiar with. According to her civil complaint, the driver began driving in the wrong direction. When Conner inquired about it, the driver intimated that he was "taking a shortcut."
