A new copyright Plaintiff, Glacier Films, has begun filing lawsuits in Illinois’ Northern District Court. Seven lawsuits were filed, each against multiple John Does, and each for the alleged unauthorized download of Plaintiff’s film, “American Heist”.
The Plaintiffs are represented by Michael A. Hierl and Todd Sheldon Parkhurst of Hughes Socol Piers Resnick & Dym Ltd.
Each case joins defendants en masse, with the Does ranging from 13 to 34.
Defendants in these new cases are likely to receive their notice of subpoenas to their internet service providers within the next few weeks. These subpoenas seek the subscribers’ names and addresses. Plaintiffs typically use the identities to pursue settlements or further litigation.
If you have received a notice in one of these cases, please don’t hesitate to call me. I have a ton of experience in file-sharing lawsuits and can help you achieve the best outcome possible. I’ve written a subpoena defense guide for your information, as well.
I look forward to speaking with you and helping you put this matter behind you.
