Considering that I know how law works, perhaps you should do some more reading on how it does actually work. See, when a group/individual/etc is named in an on-going investigation, even if innocent they're considered "part of the investigation" this is the standard MO in all FOIA/privacy IO/etc requests. Oh, there is most likely an investigation--after all, there's at least two people who attempted to swat someone...they individuals who attempted such are SJW's and anti-gamergate.

The Artists Bay?

What about one with deals with companies but where you either have to share up to a ratio of say n:1 (n=10 or 20 or whatever, hence fix their distribution) or pay say "more than the average" to not be forced to do that?

With money going in being distributed to those who contributed their work (maybe over number of downloads but then again I guess people would cheat.. so - Yeah. Maybe not a good system after all?)

Sure there must be a way to charge a reasonable "media fee" and then provide a competitive "media access"?

Radar guns in most places have to be re-certified and calibrated every 30 days(I have seen 7, 14 and 21 days and 6mo). In Canada it's rare for that defense to work, in the US not so much. Also, the officer is required to log the gun and serial number in their notes. That one gets them quite oftent.

Considering that anyone with a cellphone can make a threat, that would be pretty much it. Since you can't actually provide proof that it's gamergate it boils right back to what it originally was. A singular person, mostly likely an anonymous singular person who was doing it for whatever reason. Considering that there's several tweets showing anti-gg making the threats, and members of gnaa(who also are prominent members of anti-gg), I guess that answers where all those constant threats are coming from right?

The FBI seems to think there is enough evidence to start an investigation.

Really? It seems to me having read the original information on it, that there's information in some investigation, somewhere, with regards to gamergate. The original FOIA request was a blanket term for "gamergate" and if you think that qualifies as "gamergate did it" there's something seriously wrong in your reasoning.
