Cloudflare, Inc. provides DNS services to 6 million websites. They are adding 20,000 new customers every day.
If the case moving forward, then the Cloudflare, Inc. must continue its arguments for their favourable conditions. But the Christopher Buffoli doesn’t try again to continue his argument against the Cloudflare, Inc. Company.
Finally, If the court does not take any action against the Cloudflare, Inc. company. Christopher Buffoli has planned to appeal to the other courts against the Cloudflare, Inc. Company. Because it is more than enough for wasting the time on the court. I am not get compromised with that company at anyway and I will seek the statutory damages for a contributory infringement at that time.
