Meet Antonelli Law’s Florida Local Counsel

With more than 50 new BitTorrent copyright cases filed by Good Man Productions and Poplar Oaks recently, most of them in Florida, we thought this would be a good time to introduce our Florida local counsel Jonathan Rupprechet

We connected with Jonathan earlier this year due to our mutual interest in commercial drones, also known as Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS). Jonathan has an upcoming book on UAS being published by the American Bar Association, and obtained his Bachelor of Science in Professional Aeronautics from Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, Magna Cum Laude, and a Juris Doctor from Florida International University School of Law. He is a commercial pilot for single and multi-engine aircraft ratings and also a flight instructor for airplanes and instruments.

Jonathan RupprechtWhile in law school Jonathan gained valuable courtroom experience interning for Judge Beatrice Butchko of the 11th Judicial Circuit of Florida as well as Judge Jorge Cueto at the downtown Miami courthouse. He also gained valuable criminal law experience prosecuting cases at the State Attorney’s office in West Palm Beach as a certified legal intern.

What struck me about Jonathan aside from our mutual interest in drones was his work ethic and character for honesty. Sounding like someone like myself, I knew I wanted to work with him.  And, since Jonathan also happens to be located in the southern Florida epicenter of BitTorrent copyright litigation, we felt adding Jonathan to our already strong team of BitTorrent copyright defense counsel would make for a good fit.

Malibu Media LLC: East Coast Update

Malibu Media LLC has been showing a renewed interest in the East Coast in the last 7 weeks. In Maryland, New York, New Jersey, Washington D.C., and Virginia, a total of 123 new cases have been filed against single Doe defendants.

Maryland and Washington D.C.,  Malibu Media LLC lawsuits have been filed furiously by attorney Jon Hoppe. He filed 49 cases in Maryland from late October to mid-November, and  six cases in Washington D.C.

New Jersey saw consistent filings from Attorney Patrick Cerillo from June through September. No Malibu Media cases were filed in this jurisdiction in October, but a total of 15 cases were filed on November 6 and 7.

Virginia saw twenty-six new cases in the first two and one-half weeks of November. This jurisdiction saw large amounts of Malibu cases being filed each month from June through September, but no cases were filed in October.

New York was a bit of a surprise. Attorney Jacqueline James filed 27 cases in the Southern District of New York in early November. No other cases had been filed in this jurisdiction in 2014. The blogger FightCopyrightTrolls published an article about this recently.

Overall, the East Coast is seeing the same kind of attention seeing in the Midwest and Antonelli Law is defending folks in all these jurisdictions (we’re ready in New York though to our knowledge no one has been served yet).

Malibu Media, Millionaire Media, & Dallas Buyers Club

Last week saw the filing of a new BitTorrent copyright plaintiff in the Northern District of Illinois, Millionaire Media LLC.  DieTrollDie reported the filings on Halloween, October 31st.  Apparently, penny stock trader extraordinaire Timothy Sykes owns Millionaire Media LLC which in turn owns video and/or text files that it sells to people wishing to duplicate his success.  The allegations are that a number of people illegally downloaded these files for free on the internet, violating Millionaire Media LLC’s copyrights.

Millionaire Media LLC filed 11 BitTorrent copyright lawsuits in the Northern District of Illinois since October 29th. We will be watching these cases closely.

We also saw Malibu Media LLC continuing its efforts in the  states of Maryland, Ohio, and Illinois, filing 6, 4, and 13 new lawsuits, respectively.

Finally, Dallas Buyers Club LLC filed its second multiple defendant BitTorrent copyright lawsuit in the state of Washington, taking its chances in a district with a recent history of a successful defendant causing a BitTorrent copyright plaintiff to give up, with attorneys fees awarded to the defendant pending.  See FightCopyrightTrolls coverage here and DieTrollDie coverage here.

For more information about lawsuits filed by Malibu Media LLC, Dallas Buyers Club LLC, and the new Millionaire Media LLC plaintiff, call Antonelli Law at 312-201-8310 and speak with one of our attorneys experienced with BitTorrent copyright litigation, or fill out the contact form below to request a convenient time to have a detailed free initial consultation about each of your options. We’re very experienced – we’ve represented nearly 250 people targeted by Malibu Media LLC nationwide, and more than 700 people targeted by copyright trolls and satellite trolls nationwide.

It is not a good idea to download the Malibu Media (X-Art.com) or Dallas Buyers Club movies using BitTorrent or similar software.  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. 

The new BitTorrent copyright lawsuits filed are as follows:

Malibu Media LLC Turns Up the Heat in Ohio and Maryland

In June we reported that Malibu Media LLC had begun to test the waters in the Northern District of Ohio, and Ohio has been heating up. Since May of this year, Malibu Media LLC has filed approximately 207 new BitTorrent copyright lawsuits in the federal courts of Ohio, all through its local counsel Yousef Faroniya. Six were filed in the last two days.

However, the bigger if not unexpected story is that since the three judge panel in the Maryland District Court denied all of one defense counsel’s motions to consolidate and stay the pending Malibu Media cases on September 18th, Malibu Media LLC filed a set of 17 new BitTorrent copyright lawsuits in Maryland through its local counsel Jon Hoppe. We’re surprised it didn’t happen even sooner.

For more information about Malibu Media LLC’s copyright infringement lawsuits call Antonelli Law at 312-201-8310 and speak with one of our attorneys experienced with BitTorrent copyright litigation, visit Antonelli Law’s webpage at  http://www.antonelli-law.com/Malibu_Media.php. or fill out the contact form below to request a convenient time to have a detailed free initial consultation about each of your options.

Countryman Nevada LLC – Not Done Yet

Countryman Nevada LLC, a copyright plaintiff active in the early part of 2014, has shown  it isn’t quite ready to go away just yet.

A new case against 11 John Doe defendants was filed in Colorado, a jurisdiction that hasn’t seen any action from this copyright holder since June. John Doe defendants have been targeted in Florida, Illinois, Indiana and Michigan. However, none of these jurisdictions have been active since March.

The new case is Countryman Nevada LLC v. Does 1-11 14-cv-02832

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

To date, this company has filed 30 total cases against 641 John Doe defendants. The largest numbers of cases have been filed in Colorado and Illinois, accounting for over 90% of the defendants.

It is not a good idea to download the “Charlie Countryman” movie using BitTorrent or similar software.  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. 

Attorney Jeffrey Antonelli is admitted to all federal courts of Indiana, Wisconsin, Michigan, Colorado, and the Northern and Central Districts of Illinois and can represent clients in any federal court anywhere through pro hac vice.
