Did You Get a Letter From a Malibu Media LLC Attorney? Legal Defense & Information from Antonelli Law

Share

Have you received a letter, summons, or subpoena from  a lawyer representing Malibu Media LLC? If so, you need to contact a lawyer experienced in the special type of litigation employed by Malibu Media, which is sometimes referred to as BT (BitTorrent) copyright litigation. Others call it “copyright trolling” litigation.

Malibu Media LLC has sued thousands of people across the United States in recent years for downloading its pornographic movies on the internet without permission, it alleges.

For the last few years, those people who were about to be sued would only receive one warning as to what was about to happen: receiving a letter from their internet company informing them a subpoena to reveal their name and address was received. The letter informed the internet account holder that they could try to prevent their name and address being revealed by filing a motion to vacate or quash the subpoena. Soon afterword, the defendant would get a knock on the door and “get served” with court papers by a process server.

Malibu Media Now Sending Settlement Demand Letters

At least one lawyer working for Malibu Media LLC, Henrik Mosesi, and perhaps others are first sending a letter demanding money to settle the claims before the defendant’s name is publicly revealed in the lawsuit. For example, a Malibu Media attorney sent a settlement demand letter to this innocent woman:

Malibu Media LLC settlement demand letter
Malibu Media LLC Defendant’s affidavit re settlement demand letter

Other attorneys working for Malibu Media LLC who may be sending similar settlement demand letters and the state they are located in:

  • Henrik Mosesi                       California
  • Mary K Schultz                      Illinois
  • Jon Hoppe                                Maryland
  • Joel A. Bernier                       Michigan
  • Christopher Fiore                New Jersey
  • Jacqueline M. James          New York & Connecticut
  • A. Jordan Rushie                  Pennsylvania
  • Andrew Darshan Kumar Texas
  • John Carlin Decker, II        Virginia

Who is Malibu Media LLC Anyway?

Malibu Media LLC  owns the X-Art.com website and alleges the people it sues are users of BitTorrent file-sharing technology that are illegally obtaining and sharing their copyrighted movies for free. Significant questions have arisen regarding the methods the company’s agents employ in order to obtain the IP addresses of the lawsuits’ defendants.

What Are These Lawsuits About?

Critics of these lawsuits say its about the movie company generating more revenue. The movie company says it is filing these lawsuits to stop piracy of its intellectual property.

Federal Court Allows Antonelli Law to Represent You Effectively Without Being More Expensive Than a Qualified Local Law Firm

BitTorrent copyright lawsuits are only filed in federal court.

This means that the law for Malibu Media LLC cases is the same everywhere in the country (unlike state law cases like divorce or traffic court). Antonelli Law is very familiar with both the federal law and the important court cases that directly affect your Malibu Media LLC defense. We have represented over 500 clients fighting against Malibu Media LLC copyright infringement claims. Our deep experience helps every client we represent.

In addition, we are more efficient than the traditional copyright lawyers you might find locally who must first learn the unique cases applicable to BitTorrent copyright defense (and likely charge you for their time do to so), as well as learn the technology and ins and outs of practicing in this niche practice area.

Hiring Antonelli Law not only means you get zealous representation looking out for you. Hiring Antonelli Law means you don’t have to pay a local law firm to “catch up” on what BitTorrent technology is, the years of federal court cases around the country that apply to BitTorrent copyright infringement claims, nor the typical litigation strategies and technical attestations in Malibu Media LLC motions and lawsuits.

Finally, federal courts require attorneys to file their papers electronically, and often conduct hearings by telephone. This makes frequent trips to the courthouse unnecessary. When they are, we’ll be there.

Here is a list of cases recently filed by Malibu Media LLC. in the District of Maryland:

  • Malibu Media, LLC v Doe     8:2017-cv-00396
  • Malibu Media, LLC v Doe     8:2017-cv-00397
  • Malibu Media, LLC v Doe     1:2017-cv-00398
  • Malibu Media, LLC v Doe     1:2017-cv-00399

  • Malibu Media, LLC v Doe     8:2017-cv-00401
  • Malibu Media, LLC v Doe     1:2017-cv-00402

Malibu Media LLC is represented in Maryland by attorney  Jon Hoppe of Washington, DC.

Our clients say Antonelli Law is very good at:

  • Reducing your anxiety about the problem
  • Giving clear information to help you decide what to do
  • Responsive and accessible via phone and email
  • Tenacious and effective lawyers in lawsuit litigation

Our attorneys and local counsel are admitted to the district courts wherever Malibu Media LLC  lawsuits are filed from coast to coast. We are able to represent you in your federal case without being more expensive or more difficult to hire than hiring a local law firm in part because federal courts require attorneys to file their papers electronically, and often conduct hearings by telephone.
