If you received a letter from your ISP notifying you it received a subpoena to reveal your identity relating to a Dallas Buyers Club LLC lawsuit, read our prior post Dallas Buyers Club lawsuits – How to Respond to an ISP Letter and also Jeffrey Antonelli’s published article Torrent Wars for an overview of these types of lawsuits.
It is not a good idea to download the Dallas Buyers Club movie using BitTorrent or similar software, especially in Colorado, Florida, Hawaii, Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Ohio, Oregon, Texas, Washington and Wisconsin 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.
