Plaintiff, a prisoner proceeding without counsel or pro se, has filed a civil action*fn1 alleging copyright infringement by defendant Yahoo Inc. (Dkt. Nos. 2, 5), and an Application to Proceed In Forma Pauperis (the "Application") (Dkt. No. 17) pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1915 and a proposed court order. (Dkt. No. 6.)

No. 17 at 2 (the"Certificate" portion on the second page of the Application is neither completed nor signed by an authorized officer at plaintiff's institution of incarceration).) Also, plaintiff has not filed a certified copy of his prison trust account statement for the full six month period immediately preceding the filing of the complaint. See 28 U.S.C. § 1915(a)(2).
