When an ISP Sends You a Letter About Copyright Infringement
When a movie company decides to sue internet users in a federal district court, they must first ask the court for permission to subpoena the internet users’ identities from their ISPs. The ISPs like Comcast, COX Communications, AT&T, or Time Warner, send letters informing their subscribers that their identity has been subpoenaed by the movie company alleging copyright infringement, and gives the subscribers a period of time to challenge the subpoena, something called a motion to quash the subpoena.
If the subpoena is upheld, once the ISP turns over the internet users’ identities, they will be immediately served with a court summons and a copy of the lawsuit, or more often they will receive a settlement demand letter from a law firm hired by the movie company requesting thousands of dollars in payment.
