UPDATE (4/15): Two additional Malibu Media cases were filed on 4/13. They have been added to the list at the end of the post.
Malibu Media continues to file a record-setting number of copyright lawsuits, with 433 new cases already filed in 2016 as of this writing (4/7).
Fifteen of those lawsuits have already been kicked out of California.
But 27 new Malibu Media lawsuits target Pennsylvania residents in file-sharing lawsuits alleging copyright infringement.
The lawsuits are filed and maintained by Attorney Chris Fiore, of Fiore & Barber, of Center Valley, PA, but the ringleader of X-Art.com’s lawsuit scheme is Attorney Keith Lipscomb and his firm in Miami, FL.
The lawsuits seek statutory damages, which can vary from $750 per infringement to $150,000 per infringement. Previous Malibu Media judgements have varied from $750 to $22,500 per infringement.
