On July 22 2014, Dallas Buyers Club LLC filed five new federal copyright lawsuits in Michigan, targeting 74 unnamed Doe defendants. This brings the total number of people targeted nationwide to 2,506 in Dallas Buyers Club LLC lawsuits.
Like each previous federal lawsuit filed by Dallas Buyers Club LLC, the company alleges these as-yet anonymous Doe defendants illegally downloaded the movie Dallas Buyers Club using BitTorrent or similar peer-to-peer file-sharing programs without paying the appropriate license fee.

Its is not a good idea to download the Dallas Buyers Club movie using BitTorrent or similar software, especially in states like Michigan 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.
