It is not a good idea to download the Dallas Buyers Club movie using BitTorrent or similar software, especially in states where Dallas Buyers Club LLC is actively suing. If you are a parent make sure your children are not doing this; if you have roommates make sure your roommates are not doing this, as being a target of a federal lawsuit like this over a movie download is not fun, not fair, and is avoidable.

Dallas Buyers Club LLC Files Case in Connecticut

On September 5, 2014, Dallas Buyers Club LLC filed two federal copyright lawsuits in Connecticut, targeting 56 unnamed Doe defendants. This may be a two-edged sword, as Connecticut has the highest per-capita income of the United States: the guilty are more likely to have collectible assets than, say, the average person in Mississippi; yet the innocent are also more likely to possess the financial wherewithal to fight back and not settle, potentially exposing Dallas Buyers Club LLC to having to pay defendants’ attorneys fees.

Eric Osterberg of Osterberg LLC is representing Dallas Buyers Club LLC. According to his biography, Osterberg has been practicing Intellectual Property law for more than 20 years. He is admitted to the federal courts in Connecticut, Massachusetts and both the Southern and Eastern Districts of New York. Whether people in these jurisdictions will be targeted in the future by Dallas Buyers Club LLC remains to be seen.

These are the new Dallas Buyers Club LLC lawsuits:

Connecticut

3:14-cv-01281-SRU Dallas Buyers Club LLC v. Does 1-27
3:14-cv-01283-JBA Dallas Buyers Club LLC v. Does 1-29

Like each previous federal lawsuit filed by Dallas Buyers Club LLC, the company alleges these as-yet anonymous Doe defendants illegally downloaded the movie Dallas Buyers Club using BitTorrent or similar peer-to-peer file-sharing programs without paying the appropriate license fee.

New Copyright Troll in Town: Khumba Film Pty. Ltd.

Copyright infringement lawsuits have recently emerged in Colorado and Illinois for an animated film  called “Khumba.” Khumba was directed by Anthony Silverson and contains the voices  of Steve Buscemi, Laurence Fishburne, and others.

The copyright holder of the Khumba film, Khumba Film Pty. Ltd. , filed the federal lawsuits claiming that the target defendants illegally obtained the movie using BitTorrent or similiar software and the internet without paying the license fee. The defendants are currently “John Doe” defendants and are not named because the plaintiff copyright holder does not know the identities of those it believes did the downloads. In each lawsuit, the plaintiff has asked the court for permission to subpoena ISPs to reveal the identities of the ISP account holders associated with IP addresses plaintiff has linked to the downloads. To date, 186 doe defendants have been sued.

It is speculated that Khumba Film Pty. Ltd. is connected to another copyright plaintiff, Zambezia. Zambezia was another animated film whose copyright holder filed lawsuits in 6 different states, including Illinois and Colorado. Just under 1,000 does were targeted in those cases. For more information and opinions about the lawsuits,  visit the blog DieTrollDie.

It is not a good idea to download the Khumba movie using BitTorrent or similar software, especially in states like Illinois and Colorado where Khumba Film Pty. Ltd. is actively suing.  If you are a parent make sure your children are not doing this; if you have roommates make sure your roommates are not doing this, as being a target of a federal lawsuit like this over a movie download is not fun, not fair, and is avoidable.

Dallas Buyers Club LLC Reaches 3,000 Doe Mark

In a mere 6 months time, Dallas Buyers Club LLC has filed 125 lawsuits in 11 states. Individuals in Colorado, Florida, Hawaii, Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Ohio, Oregon, Texas, Washington and Wisconsin have been targeted for allegedly downloading this Academy Award winning film. Since the beginning of August, the company has filed 8 lawsuits and in total has amassed more than 3,000 total defendants.

On August 2, 2014, the company filed 4 lawsuits against 100 total Does in Texas, bringing the total in that state to 276. The very first Dallas Buyers Club lawsuit was filed in Texas in February 2014, but the state has been relatively quite since then. That is, until 200 Does were targeted in the last 2 weeks.

On the same day, 4 individual Doe lawsuits were filed in Oregon. So far, filing against individual Does has only happened in Florida and Oregon, but it may be something that becomes more common in other jurisdictions in the future.

Like each previous federal lawsuit filed by Dallas Buyers Club LLC, the company alleges these as-yet anonymous Doe defendants illegally downloaded the movie Dallas Buyers Club using BitTorrent or similar peer-to-peer file-sharing programs without paying the appropriate license fee.
