A new copyright plaintiff filed 21 new cases in the United States District Court for the District of New Jersey this week. The owners of the movie “Plastic”, a teen action flick, are looking
to capitalize on for compensation for their film’s popularity on bittorrent-based peer-to-peer file-sharing networks.
The Plaintiff is represented by none other than Jordan Rushie, the Liberty Media Holdings lawyer who attempted to exploit Pennsylvania’s discovery laws and obtain the identities of John Does in file-sharing cases while staying out of Federal Court.
The suits seek compensation under copyright law for a single download of the movie “Plastic”.
Defendants in these new cases are likely to receive their notice of subpoenas to their internet service providers within the next few weeks.
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.
