Emigre and FBI versus Farl

In 2000, Farl, who runs this site had his home raided by the FBI in San Diego, and his computers seized, after Emigre, House Industries, Phil's Fonts and Arts Parts complained about his storage and download site. He avoided jail. Archive of that posting. An excerpt: Tim Starback of Emigré, said when I asked him what they would like me to do, that he wanted me to go to jail and lose all my money and computer. The FBI raided my house and seized my computer and all peripherals. The FBI then raided my house and seized my computer. To their credit, I must say the FBI handled it in a very professional and courteous manner, and I have no complaints with their actions. The companies made several claims to the FBI that they had asked me to remove the materials in question on several occasions (which they never did), and that I had refused them. When I later spoke to the FBI and asked them if they had received any proof of this, they claimed that they had not.
