The online nature of the alleged infringement presents a challenge to defendants wishing to put forth a full legal defense. Defendants often find the litigation more complicated, protracted, and expensive, than a simple case of file-sharing would initially seem. However, these lawsuits shouldn’t be ignored as default judgments can be thousands of dollars in damages when there are multiple alleged infringements.
My firm has been representing defendants in these kinds of cases for almost 7 years. We have helped over 600 defendants through their cases while mitigating or avoiding the potential damage of a federal copyright lawsuit.
Defendants’ first notice of a case is usually a letter from their Internet Service Provider notifying them that the Plaintiff is seeking their identity. If the case is not resolved there, the Internet Service Provider will provide the Plaintiff with the identity of the account holder and the Defendant will receive a Summons to respond in Federal District court.
