Cook Productions Inc. is accusing Hawaiian Telecom internet subscribers of copyright infringement for downloading the film “Mr. Church” without paying the license fee. The movie stars Eddie Murphy and Britt Robertson. The movie company has already filed lawsuits against hundreds of people in Colorado, Illinois, Indiana, North Carolina, and Oregon.
It should be noted that paying the bill for an internet account that is assigned an IP address that may be involved with an illegal movie download does NOT make that internet subscriber guilty of any wrongdoing.
“Although the information requested by Plaintiff may identify the subscriber associated with each IP address, that information will not necessarily reveal the person that allegedly infringed Plaintiff’s work.”
“it is no more likely that the subscriber to an IP address carried out a particular computer function . . . than to say an individual who pays the telephone bill made a specific telephone call.” In re BitTorrent Adult Film Copyright Infringement Cases, 296 F.R.D. 80, 84 (E.D.N.Y. 2012).
Don’t Sign a Waiver of Service of Summons Form Before Speaking with an Attorney
As defense attorneys, we are concerned that people receiving a Waiver of Service of Summons form in the mail from the movie company’s lawyer will lead to an unfair default judgment against them. Please speak with an attorney experienced in movie download copyright lawsuits.
